A Personal Word from Our President
The word \”EUCON\” means \”the excellent light\” in the original language. It is transliterated from the Chinese characters you guang and, for us, denotes that Jesus Christ is \”the true Light\” (John 1:9). To bring men and women,
boys and girls out of the darkness of their old lives and into the light of a new life with Jesus Christ is the most important task of EUCON International University and School of Saipan.
We truly believe there is only one way to transform a person, and that is through Jesus Christ. By teaching the Word of God we are teaching our students to know Christ, Who is the Living Word. When students truly know the Lord,
He will change them.
EUCON International University has been established for men and women to prepare for their future Christian ministry and their service in the workforce. It is with the utmost commitment that we desire to give the people of
Saipan as well as international students the opportunity to further education with a four-year, college-level program of study. I hope you will see the excellence of EUCON as you attend our University.
At EUCON International School we strive to train our students in the disciplines of hard work and high standards. Our primary goal is to train our students to cultivate good Christian character. This is because we believe that
once students develop such character they will do well in their academic and extracurricular pursuits. EUCON is a place where students are prepared to be people after God\’s own heart so that they may serve their generation
and the generations to come.
Our University and school faculties are committed to give our students the best Christian educational experience that is possible, and at the same time equip them to serve God.
Dr Christian Wei, President/Administrator
History of EIU
Founder and President
Dr. Christian Wei was saved September 10, 1978, after a colleague in the Taiwan military encouraged him to attend a missionary church. Called to the ministry in 1980, Dr. Wei enrolled in Orient Fundamental Bible College of
Taiwan and graduated in 1986. That same year Christian and Judy Wei left Taiwan to study in the United States at Bob Jones University, where Dr. Wei received an M.A. (1987) and Ph.D. (1992) in Theology. In 1997 Dr. Wei earned
a doctorate in education from La Salle University.
History of Eucon
In 1987 while studying at BJU in Greenville, South Carolina, the Wei\’s helped to establish a local Chinese Bible Church. When several charter members finished their own seminary studies and went to the mission field, the church
provided monthly support. As the church mission program expanded Dr. Wei saw a need to form a special organization dedicated to sending missionaries to Chinese peoples throughout the world. Thus Chinese for Christ International
(CFCI) was established in 1992.
Two years later, in 1994, Dr. Wei founded Christian Way Missions Inc (CWM) as a board for sending missionaries not only to China but to other restricted-access nations. CFCI became the first branch of CWM and has since been
joined by India for Christ International (1996) and Myanmar for Christ International (1999).
In 1998, Chinese Bible Church International was formed as a mission extension arm to CFCI on the island of Saipan and EUCON International School was established as a ministry of the church. EIS provides Christian elementary
and secondary education to the people of Saipan and serves as a cross-cultural training ground for missionary teachers.
In operating the school, Dr. Wei saw how Asian students on Saipan and abroad had a strong desire to receive an American college education. EUCON International University was established under Christian Way Missions Inc as a
means to reach these students for Christ. EIU was licensed by the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas in 2002, began classes in 2003, and received government authorization to start issuing student visas in 2004.
EUCON International School is a member of the American Association of Christian Schools (AACS). Eucon International College is an applicant institution for accreditation by the Transnational Association of Christian Schools
and Colleges (TRACS). The college is licensed to operate on Saipan as a postsecondary, degree-granting educational institution by the Board of Regents of the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Island.
Today Dr. Wei resides in Saipan while serving as administrator of EUCON International School, president of EUCON International University, pastor of Christian Bible Church, and president of Christian Way Missions Inc.
The CWMI headquarters remain in Greenville, South Carolina, under the direction of Dr. Eddie Wang, a Chinese national who followed after the footstep of his grandfather, Huang Yan Pei, who was also one of the greatest educators
and government officials in China. Dr. Wang is also director of Chinese for Christian International and chairman of the Eucon International College board of directors. The board consists of five members who are assisted by
an advisory board comprised of respected educators, pastors, and missionary statesmen from the United States.
