WAXAHACHIE - Rev. Del Guynes was recently named the interim chair for SAGU’s Communication Arts department. Guynes joined the SAGU faculty in 2004 as Director of Chapel Music and Traveling Ministry Teams. Prior to coming to SAGU, Del was the Minister of Music at Aurora First Assembly of God in Aurora, Colorado, for 18 years.

"I am excited about what is happening in the Communication Arts Department, which is one of the fastest growing academic areas at SAGU," Guynes commented. "The faculty team—Dr. Danny Alexa-nder, Rob Price and Dr. Skip Redd—have done a great job at accommodating the rapid growth of the department over the past several years with its relatively small group of faculty."

Coming to the position with more than 20 years of experience in the communication industry, Guynes holds a bache-lor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism and a Master of Science in Telecommunications. He has worked for a number of media companies while a bi-vocational ordained AG minister. Early in his career, he was involved for a brief time in freelance television writing and directing for churches.

Upon finishing his graduate degree, Guy-nes joined Jones International, a large media conglomerate. During Guynes’ 17 years at Jones, he led business development efforts for the cable television branch in competitive telecommunications, high-speed Inter-net cable modem service and the nation’s first launch of telephone service by a cable television operator. Guynes eventually became the Staff Integration Officer at Jones, working for the CEO to integrate the business development efforts of several subsidiaries.

He has also been an Information Technology executive at Charter Communications, the third largest cable-distributed video, Internet access and telephone service provider in the U.S.

Though excited about this year, Guynes already looks to the department’s future. "Beyond this academic year, it is exciting to contemplate the addition of the World Communications Center concept, a multi-disciplinary facility that will accommodate not only the Communication Arts Department but other departments on campus as well," Guynes remarked. "These are exciting times for Communication Arts at SAGU, and I look forward to contributing as I can to that effort."

According to Guynes, "What I most look forward to is seeing the dreams and callings of students take shape and enabling them to get traction in a very practical way. Over time, it will be exciting to see what God does after graduation with the Communication Arts students that I will get to know, in the same way I have been blessed to see that happen with students from the music department."
