Dr. Sam Horn

President, The Master's University

Sam Horn comes to The Master’s University and Seminary with decades of experience in higher education administration and a passion for training men and women for gospel ministry.

When Dr. Horn was initially recruited for the presidency at The Master’s University and Seminary, he graciously turned down the offer. He was sobered by the weight of the stewardship. At TMUS, he saw a 35-year legacy of faithfulness that could not be changed. It must be guarded and protected. He prayed that if there was a better man to steward these schools, that the search committee would find him. After looking across the country, the search committee again asked Dr. Horn if he would interview for the job. They believed he was the right man to keep TMUS grounded in its doctrinal legacy and lead it into the future. So after more prayer, and wise counsel from his wife, Dr. Horn agreed to begin the interview process, which culminated on February 7th, 2020, when the TMUS Board of Directors unanimously elected Dr. Sam Horn the 9th president of The Master’s University and the second president of The Master’s Seminary.

Dr. Horn and his wife, Beth, have a son, Robert, and a daughter, Ashton.
