Norman Hope, Ph.D., C.P.A.

Department: Business

Norman, and the entire business department, helps students understand what it means to be a steward of God’s resources. Norman helps them understand what it means to be a servant, to be ethical, a worker, artisan, reconciler, and disciple.

He loves being able to interact with students and being a part of their lives. He helps students dream and facilitates them accomplishing those dreams.

Norman’s seen students come to Tabor for selfish reasons, but after catching a glimpse of what their lives can be like serving God and others, leave as successful stewards.

Norman and his wife Julie have two adult daughters, Jennifer and Katherine.
