LPC junior Marlene Munoz inspires kids. During a summer internship in Lompoc, Calif., she served with a Vacation Bible School for neighborhood children, led worship in public services with the church’s worship team, and started a music clinic to help children learn how to use their musical gifts to honor the Lord.
Life Pacific College’s mission is to develop leaders prepared to serve God in the Church, the workplace, and the world. Warrior point guard Mark Eden is just that kind of leader.
Eden is responsible for running the plays and setting the pace for Coach Tim Cook’s nationally ranked (number six in the nation as of this writing) men’s basketball squad. It’s a big task for the smallest player on the team…but nothing he can’t handle. As the man most often with the ball in his hands he is directly responsible for the success of his teammates.
