Bresee founded and became the first president of Pacific Bible College, which would become Pasadena College and later Point Loma Nazarene University. The women had envisioned a Bible college, but Bresee’s vision was for a liberal arts institution. He believed spiritual and academic learning went hand-in-hand.
