Not sure if this is the kind of news folks want to read. ACU is interviewing President candidates for the school. Notice this quote from the article “Is that (Church of Christ affiliation) something that should be preserved or do the candidates think it is time to move away from that connection?” Pamplin said he wants to know. “Specifically, should the church of Christ membership requirement for board members and faculty members be maintained or not?”
I believe the school has been going the wrong way for decades. But this is an outright admission that they are officially thinking of dropping the relationship. Yet they also state they want to be the premier Christian University in the nation. That statement tells a great deal.
