Partnership with Arizona Christian University
LifePoint University is a God-given and directed vision given to the leadership at LifePoint Church several years ago and last year, the vision to take it a step higher was given. After looking around at other large churches I was convinced that God would make a way for the program to grow to something bigger than we had imagined.
The model seemed to be that churches would partner with nearby Christian universities to offer credit at the university for classes taught at the church. How could we replicate that? Well, it just so happens that at one time, LifePoint had an intern who was a student at Arizona Christian University (ACU) and a thought crossed my mind: I wondered if we could partner with ACU in this way? The door was opened and over the last year we developed a Memorandum of Understanding with ACU and for the first time, we’ll be offering some of the LifePoint University classes with the ability to earn credit through ACU!
Arizona Christian University is a regionally accredited university in Glendale and has been an institution of higher learning since 1960 and is focused on education and growth in Christ. We’ll be offering FOUN104—Intro to Theology and FOUN 120—Intro to Apologetics under this agreement in 2020. If students want to earn credit, there will be textbooks to purchase, quizzes, and papers to write. However, if a student does not want credit, they can attend the class as they normally would with LifePoint University. For more information come see me this Sunday!
