Lake Wales, FL
Located in Lake Wales, just an hour's drive from Tampa and Orlando, and established by the Church of God in 1968, Warner University is regionally accredited through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
We offer students twenty-seven different majors in three different schools: the School of Education; the School of Business; and the School of Ministry, Arts and Sciences. Students at WU gain a solid liberal arts foundation, which prepares them to meet successfully the demands of the marketplace and the rigors of graduate school.
Regarded for our outstanding faculty, diversity and smaller class sizes, our students comment that the professors at WU are personable and approachable. Most importantly, they care about each student individually, adding to the family atmosphere you'll find on our campus.
What truly distinguishes Warner University from other places is that we offer students a Christian education. In fact, our mission is to "graduate students who exemplify academic excellence and Christian character, who are prepared to lead and committed to serve."
A wealth of knowledge, friendships and opportunities await you at Warner University. But more than that, we teach you to serve and show you how to live. So by the time you graduate, you're ready to meet life's challenges and prepared beyond belief to have a powerful influence on others.

Dr. Greg Hall has served as President of Warner University since December of 1991. He earned his Master of Education and Doctor of Education in Higher Education Administration from the University of Pittsburgh and received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy from the State University of New York.
Before coming to Warner University, Dr. Hall was the Executive Director of the Church of God in Western Pennsylvania for 7 years. He also served 14 years as a pastor in the state of New York and Pennsylvania. He is a native of Jamestown, New York and is an ordained minister.
Dr. Hall’s fervent desire is to build a case for Christian education. To that end, he has written numerous articles, sermons and speeches over the course of his professional life and has presented various topics and lectures at churches and conferences throughout the United States.
He recently co-authored a book, Already Compromised, with world-renown author and speaker, Ken Ham, President and CEO of Answers in Genesis, that shares statistical data and bold insight on the state of today’s Christian colleges.
As an educator and university president, Dr. Hall’s objective is to persuade Christian families of the priority of Christian education and to challenge Christian schools to remain vigilant in this day and age. He also helps parents of students not in Christian schools understand the strategies of the enemies of the faith and gives them guidance on keeping their child’s faith strong within a secular environment.
Dr. Hall has served as President of the Lake Wales Chamber of Commerce and the Lake Wales Care Center. He has also served as a member of the Presidents Council for the Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida, and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics.
