Louis Mann

After spending 40 years in Christian School Administration, Louis was appointed by Missions Door as the Dean of Education for CB Matrix, the new distance learning program for training church leaders.

Louis' overall experience comes through teaching and administering six different Christian schools and through his opportunities to work with others involved in distant learning programs.

Brought up in a Christian home, Louis accepted Christ as his savior and was baptized while still in elementary school. He graduated from Bob Jones University and there felt the call into the ministry of Christian education. Louis later felt God's hand of direction into the area of administration and attended Grace Theological Seminary and received his MA in Christian School Administration in 1978. He was ordained to the gospel ministry in 1982.

Louis and his wife Ruth Ann have been married since 1968 and have seven daughters, two sons, 20 grandchildren, and 5 great grandsons.
