Bumstead’s diverse experience and leadership throughout the Lubbock community and his studies at Davidson College, Texas Tech University, and the Union Theological Seminary make him a great addition and resource for the LCU School of Business.

He has served in various leadership roles with:

  • Lubbock Area United Way

Bumstead addresses the attendees of his welcome reception"The opportunity to join the LCU family and serve as a part of such an inspiring and impactful mission is a privilege that thrills me tremendously and humbles me deeply. The chance to invest in and learn from some of this nation's most extraordinary young men and women is one I will absolutely treasure," said Bumstead.

As CEO in Residence, Bumstead will offer his expertise to students through mentoring and teaching opportunities. He will draw on his business experience to help LCU business students become Christ-centered business leaders, as well as advance LCU’s "business as ministry" initiative.

"The real world of work and the real world of ministry are the same world," Bumstead said at the reception. "We're gonna talk about every beautiful, messy truth this world has to offer  and we're going to frame it with a capital T."
