The Master’s University and Seminary officials announced Monday that the president of the university for the past year would be stepping down from his position.
Sam Horn served as the TMUS president from 2020-21. He has been the third president of the university since 2019, after John Stead served as the interim head of the school from 2019-20, and John MacArthur had been in the position from 1985-2019.
Officials from TMUS declined to comment to The Signal on Tuesday on the reason for Horn’s departure, but Corey Williams, a spokesman for the school, said the board of directors had received a resignation letter from Horn on Feb. 26.
“The board is meeting on Friday. They’re going to pick an interim president on Friday, and then they’re going to start the process of selecting a new president right after that,” Williams said.
In a statement issued on Monday, board members said they are grateful to Horn for leading the school during the COVID-19 pandemic and the reaffirmation of accreditation by the Western Senior College and University Commission.
