Brent Pafford

Executive Assistant to the President

Brent Pafford serves as the executive assistant to President Belcher and Dawn Dirksen, VP of Finance and Operations, joining the Providence administrative staff in August 2016.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in Music Performance and a master’s in Business Administration from Stetson University, a private liberal arts university in DeLand, Florida. Serving in various administrative roles during his studies, including as an intern to Stetson’s Dean of the School of Music and as a graduate assistant in the Joseph C. Prince Entrepreneurship Program, Brent is excited to utilize his gifts and work experience to support the president and Mrs. Dirksen in promoting the college’s mission, which is to equip students with a firmly grounded understanding in the Word of God, hand in hand with an excellent liberal arts education. Receiving a liberal arts education himself, he sees the wonderful value of such an education, rooted in the Reformed tradition, and is thankful for the opportunity to glorify God in this capacity.

Spending the majority of his life in the Southeast in Georgia and Florida, Brent is excited about the new move to southern California, residing in the beautiful city of Pasadena and close to the vast cultural opportunities of the greater Los Angeles area. Though far from home and family, he is thankful for the gracious welcoming he has received from the Providence community.

Brent is a member of Anaheim Hills Orthodox Presbyterian Church.

“Liberal arts is a conversation through which we obtain wisdom. True wisdom, then, founded in the fear and love of the Lord, engenders a desire for a deeper knowledge and love of one another, teaches us and aids us in forgiving and reconciling with one another and encourages us to explore together the limitless implications of our redeemed existence on this earth.”
