Former Academic Dean at California Christian College, most recently Alumni Relations and Master of Arts Program Director at Randall University, died suddenly November 30, 2018 as a result of complications from recent heart surgery. We are deeply saddened and ask that you hold up his family in prayer within the coming days. For more information on Greg McAllister and his memorial service please check with Randall University.

From the Office of the President, California Christian College

The California Christian College community received the news of the Reverend Greg McAllister’s passing with both grief and gratitude. We grieve that such a special friend of the College has been taken from us. Greg worked tirelessly for many years at CCC, both as a faculty member and administrator. As Dean of Academics, he served with distinction and was instrumental in guiding the College through its initial stages of accreditation. While we grieve, we are also grateful for the privilege of continuing Greg’s legacy at CCC, but even more grateful for the assurance we have as believers that our brother has now won the final victory and entered his eternal rest in the presence of Almighty God.

We extend our heartfelt sympathy to Greg’s immediate family, those who grieve his departure most deeply: his wife, Debbie; his children, Mark and Rachel; his grandchildren; his parents; and his sisters. We also extend our condolences to President Timothy Eaton and the Randall University community who have lost a valued colleague and beloved co-laborer in their work for Christ. Be assured of our prayers on behalf of you all.

On a more personal note, I am ever indebted to Greg for providing me the opportunity to serve at California Christian College. We first met in the 1990s at the Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary in Fresno. He was working on his master’s degree and enrolled in a class I was teaching as an adjunct professor. Not long afterward, he invited me to consider serving at California Christian College. And the rest, so they say, is history.

Rejoicing in the hope of reunion,

Tim Powell, President
