ADVANCEMENT TEAM header_icon


Point UniversityJoshua Harrelson
Vice President of Advancement

I was raised in Kansas and Colorado and graduated from the University of Colorado. I found my way to the South after college, and eventually escaped the Atlanta city life to settle with my wife and three children in LaGrange. While living in Atlanta, I heard about all the awesome things God was doing at Point. And, as if by providence at the time, we settled our family only miles from the West Point campus, not knowing that God would lead me to this position two years later. As Vice President of Advancement I provide vision for Point’s development, alumni and university relations, and communications efforts.

I am a native of Sacrament, CA, and I current live in Conyers, GA. I have worked in the non-profit sector since 1996 where I served as executive director. I hold a B.S. in urban youth studies, a M.S. in general counseling, and a D.Min. from United Theological Seminary. I also serve as an instructor for the College of Graduate and Professional Studies at Point University. My wife Danyale (alumna ‘10) and I have been married since 1996, and we have two daughters. My goal is to build new and maintain existing relationship with donors to increase the University’s visibility, impact and financial resources.

Point UniversityChris Beirne
Director of University Relations

I graduated from Georgia Tech with a B.S. in civil engineering in 2002 and received my M.A in religion, Christian theology, from Emmanuel Christian Seminary in 2012. My passion for creating environments and opportunities for university students to grow in their faith, positively affect the communities in which they live and study, and become passionate and educated disciple makers lead me to pursue working at Point. As the Director of University Relations, I am responsible for building strong partnerships with individuals and corporations in the University’s community of influence and connecting them with the Point family to create a richer learning experience for the student and deeper impact on the community.
