Vanguard has its origins in the Azusa Street Revival of the early 20th century. The Southern California Bible School was founded in 1920 by Harold K. Needham, D. W. Kerr, and W. C. Pierce. The school moved from Los Angeles to Pasadena in 1927, and was renamed the Southern California Bible College in 1939 when it gained its charter to award degrees. It gained university status in 1999.
