ACU Community Response to Campus Safety

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 Christian University’s Department of Campus Safety is led by Chief John Hoebee.  Chief Hoebee serves our community after retiring from a local law enforcement agency where he served honorably for 26 years.  He brings an extensive background in training, tactics, experience, and law enforcement resources to our Campus Safety program.  Chief Hoebee has provided Arizona Christian University staff and students training, training resources, and drills in Response to Active Shooter scenario, Emergency Action Plan and Response, and other safety training.  Arizona Christian University embraces and practices the Department of Homeland Security philosophy of “If You See Something Say Something!”  By working with our community, we provide a safe environment for our students and staff. Visit our Campus Safety website, for our campus safety emergency response plan and further safety information. Arizona Christian University offers counseling resources if our students or staff need to talk to someone.

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.

Hobby Lobby founders David and Barbara Green to receive 4th Daniel Award for Courageous Public Faith at a Dinner in their Honor

Hobby Lobby founders David and Barbara Green to receive 4th Daniel Award for Courageous Public Faith at a Dinner in their Honor

Arizona Christian University President Len Munsil announced Thursday that Hobby Lobby Founders David and Barbara Green will receive the 4th Daniel Award for Courageous Public Faith at a banquet in their honor April 9 in Scottsdale. “We are thrilled to be able to honor the Greens for the stands they have taken for Christ as business owners,” Munsil said. “Not only have they been huge job creators who are renowned for taking care of their employees, but they have been willing to stand up to unjust governmental decrees that violate their conscience, religious freedom and commitment to the sanctity of every human life.” The Greens’ willingness to stand up for the sanctity of life through a lawsuit challenging the HHS contraceptive/abortion mandate resulted in a landmark 5-4 decision from the U.S. Supreme Court in 2014 that protects our freedom to operate a business consistent with our religious principles. Previous recipients of the Daniel Award include the 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush, evangelist and Samaritan’s Purse CEO Rev. Franklin Graham, and Grammy winning recording artist Michael W. Smith. “The purpose of the Daniel Award is to honor those who have stood for Christ in our culture, no matter what sphere of influence or vocation, and to provide an example for our students who are studying for degrees in the same field,” Munsil said. “With President Bush, Franklin Graham and Michael W. Smith, we honored those who led in politics, full-time Christian ministry, and the world of arts and entertainment and music.” “Our business administration degree is one of the most popular degrees at ACU,” Munsil said....

Dr. Mary Poplin to Speak in ACU Chapel

Arizona Christian University is excited to welcome Dr. Mary Poplin to campus Thursday, February 19, to speak in our chapel service. A native of Texas, Mary Poplin earned her Ph.D. in Education from the University of Texas. She began her career teaching elementary school and special education, later becoming a professor at Claremont Graduate University in California where she was director of the Teacher Education Program, 1985-1995 and Dean of the School of Educational Studies, 2000-04. Between those positions Poplin worked with Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta. She has hosted a Summit on Accountability and Social Justice which sought to define the major principles inherent in accountability systems in the U.S. that have been found to be effective in closing the achievement gap between rich and poor and between racial and ethnic groups. She is the author of “Voices from the Inside: A Report on Schooling from Inside the Classroom” (1992). More recently, Poplin has begun to work on the application of the intellectual, social, and psychological principles of the Judeo-Christian worldview as they apply to higher education, particularly among culturally and linguistically diverse peoples and the poor. Poplin has published two books with Veritas through InterVarsity Press: Is Reality Secular? Testing the Assumptions of Four Global Worldviews (2013) and Finding Calcutta: What Mother Teresa Taught Me About Meaningful Work and Service (2008).
