Dr. James Dobson to receive ACU’s 5th Daniel Award

Arizona Christian University President Len Munsil announced today that legendary pro-family leader Dr. James Dobson will receive the 5th Daniel Award for Courageous Public Faith at a banquet in his honor April 14 at the Phoenician in Scottsdale. “We are absolutely thrilled to be able to honor Dr. Dobson for the incredible work he has done to strengthen the family, while courageously defending biblical truth in our culture,” said ACU President Len Munsil. “It is almost impossible to measure the influence of this one man on the policies and practices related to parenting and the American family over the past half-century.” Dr. James Dobson is the Founder and President of Family Talk, a nonprofit organization that produces his radio program, “Dr. James Dobson’s Family Talk.” He is the author of more than 30 books dedicated to the preservation of the family, including The New Dare to Discipline; Love for a Lifetime; Life on the Edge; Love Must Be Tough; The New Strong-Willed Child; When God Doesn’t Make Sense; Bringing Up Boys; Marriage Under Fire; Bringing Up Girls; Head Over Heels and, most recently, Your Legacy: The Greatest Gift.  He was the founding president of Focus on the Family and has been an advisor to three U.S. Presidents on family issues. “Dr. Dobson’s practical wisdom for parents, through his books and radio programs, strengthened tens of millions of American families,” said Munsil. “His public proclamation of the Gospel, his work to advance the sanctity of life, strengthen marriage, fight pornography, build state family policy councils — and with his wife Shirley, to promote the National Day of Prayer – these accomplishments barely scratch the surface of Dr. Dobson’s influence. “When we...
Should Professors Admit to Being Broken?

Should Professors Admit to Being Broken?

I have had people suggest that perhaps I am too transparent with my students. I don’t think that’s true. I tend to admit to having problems. I think it’s called being real. As a mature Christian – read old (I’ll be 70 in February) – I have been through a lot in my life. I have openly shared that in my classes. I also share that I would not have made it through a lot of those experiences if it hadn’t been for God. I believe that knowing that I deal with depression has helped my students – both here at ACU and at previous schools – feel that they can come to me and talk about their problems. The fact that I have admitted that I have not always followed Christ as I should have has helped students know that they could come to me with ANY problem they were facing – including those of a sexual nature. They know I will NOT be shocked by anything they share, and I will do my best to be understanding and loving. They also know I am not going to tell them something is right when it’s not! I’ve sinned enough in my life to know the consequences of “sowing the wind,” and all that “reaping the whirlwind” I’ve done would be wasted if I did not share it with my people! Sheila Walsh has written a number of books about her experiences trying to be the “perfect Christian” that she thought she should be. When she finally had a major breakdown, she spent some time in a mental hospital...

ACU Community Response to Campus Safety

Arizona Christian University takes Campus Safety very seriously!  Campus Safety serves our community 24 hours a day, seven days a week, year round, and works in conjunction with the Phoenix Police and Fire Departments in response to campus calls for service. At ACU, some security guards are armed while others are not.  Those who are armed have been properly trained and certified in the safe and proper use of fire arms.   Off-duty law enforcement officers are also employed for special details.  Our Department of Campus Safety is trusted by our community for the protection of life, property, and promoting proactive crime and fire prevention techniques through electronic surveillance, education, and environmental design.

Arizona Shine Named 2015 NRB Radio Station of the Year

Arizona Shine, a ministry of Arizona Christian University, has been named the 2015 Radio Station of the Year by National Religious Broadcasters (NRB). The award was presented February 24 to Arizona Shine Station Manager Sally Barton during the NRB 2015 International Christian Media Convention, February 23-26 in Nashville, TN. In recognizing Arizona Shine’s excellence in production and service to the community, the NRB award also acknowledges commitment to the Gospel, faithfulness to the mission and personal integrity. “We are so thankful for the leadership and ministry of Arizona Shine and ACU Vice President and KGCB Station Manager Sally Barton in our state,” said Len Munsil, President of Arizona Christian University. “This national recognition of the Arizona Shine team by the NRB is well-deserved and much appreciated.” “This award represents the pinnacle of Christian media,” said Barton. “’Proverbs 22:1, A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.’ To be recognized by the National Religious Broadcasters as effective in encouraging believers in their faith and introducing people to Jesus through this mighty microphone is God’s gift to His Arizona Shine and Arizona Christian University family. To our listening and supportive family, this recognition is because of you. For including Arizona Shine in your days and nights, for your love and prayers, thank you.” With a signal that covers families from Flagstaff to the Phoenix metropolitan area, Arizona Shine is dedicated to empowering listeners to share the love of Jesus.
