ACU Named NAIA Champion of Character Five-Star Institution

ACU Named NAIA Champion of Character Five-Star Institution

Arizona Christian University President Len Munsil is pleased to announce that the University has again been named a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Champions of Character Five-Star Institution. “We are encouraged that the NAIA has noted what we’ve gone to great lengths to establish at ACU — an athletics program that is not only competitive, but one that excels in building character and glorifying God,” Munsil said. “This is a credit to our athletic administration, our coaches, our faculty, our fans and of course, our student-athletes.” According to the NAIA, the Champions of Character program “will create an environment in which every NAIA student-athlete, coach, official and spectator is committed to the true spirit of competition through the five tenets: integrity, respect, responsibility, sportsmanship and servant leadership.” To earn the Five-Star Institution honor, members are “measured on a demonstrated commitment to Champions of Character and earned points in character training, conduct in competition, academic focus, character recognition and character promotion. Institutions earned points based on exceptional student-athlete grade point averages and by obtaining zero ejections during competition throughout the course of the academic year.” Arizona Christian University is a member of the Golden State Athletic Conference (GSAC) and National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and competes in the National Christian College Athletics Association Division I (NCCAA). ACU was named a Five-Star Institution in 2008-2009, 2010-2011, and now... read more
Stressed Yet?

Stressed Yet?

Have you ever been to the library and seen those people carrying a stack of books that towers above their head? I’ll willingly admit I’ve been one of those people, literally. (Please don’t fault me–I’m a nerd. It’s okay.) This time of year, every college student feels like a juggler who has too much on the plate they are carrying. It’s the first week of November, and students are starting to realize that their major projects, papers, and general assignments will be due very shortly. For me, reality has crashed hard in the last 24 hours and I’m feeling the pressure to get a lot done. A video,  a couple of six page papers, a research assignment, and the upcoming stresses of student teaching are all on my plate. That doesn’t account for three part time jobs and a social life thrown into the mix! AAAHHHH!!! It’s okay, fellow students. You can scream with me. Get up and do some pacing. Maybe do some jumping jacks or cry. Now, get up and take a deep breath. In, hold it, out. Repeat. Breathing should help. But know what’s the biggest help? REMEMBER THAT YOU’RE NOT ALONE!!! I wish I had a super spiritual thought here, but I don’t. But just the fact that Jesus is with me is comforting. My life is nowhere near as stressful as living three years with the impending doom of the cross. The demands upon my time are minuscule in comparison to those of the Creator of the Universe. He understands pressure perfectly, and He wants to help. So while you are practicing your breathing,... read more

Women’s Soccer: ACU Earns First-Ever GSAC Win

Women’s Soccer: ACU Earns First-Ever GSAC Win

Arizona Christian University (4-8-1, 1-6-0 GSAC) took its first ever win in Golden State Athletics Conference women’s soccer with a goal by freshman midfielder Jesslyn Jana (Placerville, Calif./El Dorado HS) 10 minutes into the second half, and sophomore forward Chelsea Ruland (Tucson, Ariz./Pusch Ridge Christian Academy) scoring the match-winning Golden Goal at 106:50 of the second 10-minute overtime period. ACU ended the match 2-1, over San Diego Christian College (5-8-0, 2-5-0 GSAC), Thursday, Oct. 18, in El Cajon, California. ACU played its second double overtime match of the season. ACU takes on The Master’s College (9-4-2, 4-3-0 GSAC), which ranks 21st in the NAIA Top 25 Coaches’ poll, Saturday, Oct. 20, at 11 a.m., on Pete Reese Field in Santa Clarita, California. ACU’s dry spell finally ended at the 55:14 mark of the second half when Jana earned her first collegiate goal, deflecting home a pass into the penalty box area by Ruland, who gained her fifth career assist and second of the season. Ruland and Jana hooked up again for the match-winner, with Ruland scoring her team-best eighth goal of the season and 18th career goal in 25 matches over two seasons. Jana’s pass from the left side split defenders and Ruland converted the pass to a goal from the right side. Jana and Ruland are tied for ACU’s career assists lead with five each, and Jana also owns the school single-season assist record. San Diego Christian led 1-0 early when junior defender Rocio Corona tallied her first goal of the season just 9:09 into the first half off a pass from freshman forward Brice Poort, who picked... read more
One More Crazy Story

One More Crazy Story

So far I’ve been on this earth for 20 short, quirky years. I say quirky because I am thoroughly convinced God does not write normal stories, only beautiful ones. Most of my life has been the drawn out story of falling in love with Jesus, but one of the sub-plots has been falling in love with nations. In the past few years, I’ve gotten to travel the world through ACU’s developing missions program. I’ve gained a bunch of wonderful stories, such as being chased through Indian jungles by monkeys, or attempting to break up fist fights in my bible class in Africa. I’ve been to the Taj Mahal, and struggled through whether or not Jesus would want me to give my shoes to a little boy who is begging me for them. I had no other shoes, for the record…but Jesus still said give to those who ask of you. I still wonder if I should have been more generous! All of these stories have been a wonderful blessing to live, feeling like the chapters in a book written by an incredible skilled and gracious author. What’s funny is that these are the stories that people ask me to tell again and again. They remember how I got into a motorcycle accident because we tried to fit too many people on a motorbike, or the story of playing Cricket in India. The thing is, these aren’t the stories I want to tell over and over. These are not the stories that changed me. The stories that changed me are the ones that most people don’t think are worth hearing again. The stories that are made up of memories of faces more than of words and plot points. I don’t... read more
