To change the world would be impossible for just one person, but to change the world one person at a time is not only a possibility, but a personal mission for Glenn Duncan. As the Executive Director and CEO since 2004, Mr. Duncan has led Southlands Christian Schools to become a premier private Christian school in Southern California. During his tenure, Southlands Christian has experienced dynamic growth and the changing of many lives.
In his previous occupations, Mr. Duncan pioneered marketing and brand management success for a number of companies, including a four year stint in Melbourne, Australia as the Director of Business Development for Linfox Distribution Group. After working closely with a pastor who encouraged him to learn the importance of waiting on God, a passion awakened in him to live his life to please God, which eventually led him to Southlands Christian. It is Mr. Duncan’s mission to raise up global leaders by first bringing each student to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and envisioning them to fulfill their God-given destinies. His dream is to see Godly, passionate students graduating and becoming agents of change in the world.
