The seminars will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at noon. The seminar will be conducted in Charlottesville, Virginia, on the 26th and in Greensboro, North Carolina, on the 27th.

The news headlines continue to highlight the volatility of same-sex marriage in the country.  What is an appropriate response for the church to make regarding same-sex marriage?

An attorney will address the issue of legal protections through by-laws. The seminar will close with a discussion on pastorally ministering to people from the LGBTQIA community. This...

MACU Reponse to Clery Act Findings

November 26, 2014

Elizabeth City, NC –November 24, 2014 A single tragic event on the campus of Mid-Atlantic Christian University in 2010 precipitated a routine investigation by the Department of Education’s (DOE) Clery Act Compliance Team. The investigation focused upon Mid-Atlantic’s response to that incident, campus safety issues, as well as policies, procedures, and documents from 2009 and 2010.  This comprehensive evaluation determined that Mid-Atlantic’s response to that incident, including our communication with students, staff and others was in full compliance with Clery Act requirements.  While there were no findings of any campus safety issues, the DOE discovered minor administrative and policy deficiencies of a technical nature that did not fully comply with certain Clery Act reporting and recordkeeping requirements.  On January 30, 2014 the DOE released its Final Program Review Determination (FPRD) indicating that the university had satisfactorily addressed the deficiencies. As is often the case following tragedies of this nature, reviewers carefully scrutinized “the University’s adherence to its ‘Timely Warning’ policy in response to the shooting incident.”  The review determined “that the University acted in a compliant manner in this instance.”  It should be noted that none of these actions, policies, or procedures contributed to the tragedy on the...
