Speaker : Jim Diehl

Dr. Diehl is a prolific writer of numerous articles that have appeared in the Herald of Holiness, Holiness Today, Preacher’s Magazine, Bread, World Mission, The Holiness Digest, Perspective, and others. He has a great love for education. He is a graduate of Olivet Nazarene University, and in 1990 Northwest Nazarene University conferred on him a Doctor of Divinity degree in recognition of his outstanding achievements. His passion for education has led him to serve on the boards of trustees at MidAmerica Nazarene University (MNU), Nazarene Theological Seminary, Nazarene Bible College, and Northwest Nazarene University. He also served as chairman of the Board of Regents at Northwest Nazarene University. In 2011 the Board of Trustees at MNU invited Dr. Diehl to serve as interim president of the University—a position he held for seven months while they conducted a search for a new president. At the close of his service at the University, the trustees presented James H. Diehl with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Dr. Jim's near lifetime marriage to Dorothy ended last August when Dorothy went home to heaven. She was his soul mate and wife since they were high school sweethearts in Des Moines, Iowa.
