It is with profound sadness that we mourn the loss of our beloved friend and leader, President Emeritus Clyde Cook.

After returning from speaking in Houston, Dr. Cook was at home on Friday evening, April 11, with his wife Anna Belle when he passed away and entered the presence of the Lord.

This news has stunned us all. We grieve deeply with Anna Belle, Laura, Craig and their family. I promised Anna Belle that night that their Biola University family would prayerfully stand with them through these days of extraordinary loss.

Dr. Cook was long loved by this community and has truly impacted the world for the Lord Jesus Christ through an influence on countless lives. We will miss him dearly.
