A former student body president of LCU, Warren McNeill ('82) learned about the importance of putting together a team to accomplish a goal. Two important lessons that guide his decisions: do these people have the ability to contribute to a team effort, and do they have the skills to help reach the goal. As a former banker and financial consultant, Warren has found those lessons invaluable.
He came to LCU in 1994 as Director of Alumni Relations and later served as Director of Development, then as Director of Marketing. Warren now serves the university as the AVP of University Relations. His education includes a B.S. in Business Administration and an M.S. in Ministry.
The efforts of his team in securing Colin Powell, Former President George W. Bush, and Condoleezza Rice for the LCU Benefit Dinner Series have helped bring significant recognition to the university. The public relations and marketing team have also been instrumental in numerous marketing initiatives both on and off campus.
Until 2011 he used his gift of music to direct LCU's Best Friends singing group, and he loves to lead worship on campus and at Monterey Church of Christ where his family attends. His wife, Denise ('82), is the LCU bookstore manager. Their son, Jarred, and daughter-in-law, Kelsie, graduated from LCU in 2009 and their youngest son, Beau, graduated from LCU in 2013.
