Dr. Luton Leads Local Teachers in Professional Development

August 09, 2017

Dr. Cheryl Luton, Associate Professor of Elementary Education and Director of Teacher Education at Mid-Atlantic Christian University, led sessions from August 1-9 for K-2 and 3-5 grade public school teachers. The workshop sessions were aimed at helping school teachers incorporate practical activities in the elementary math classroom that are inquiry-based and reflect real-world scenarios.  The sessions that Dr. Luton led were part of an 8 day summer institute funded by a grant from the United States Department of Education and conducted in Elizabeth City – “The Albemarle Instruction, Inquiry and Integration Mathematics and Science (AI3MS) Partnership.” The grant was written by MACU adjunct professor George Cox, who teaches a science methods course in the university’s elementary education program. Math and science teachers throughout eleven school districts in northeast North Carolina participated in this professional development opportunity.  This service provided an opportunity for Dr. Luton to share her expertise with teachers who work in the region's public school systems. Consequently, MACU gained exposure in the community as a leader in mathematics education.  MACU is grateful for faculty who serve within the Kingdom of God by meeting the needs of the community.

Death of MACU Founder

July 11, 2017

MID-ATLANTIC CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY-- It is with profound sadness that we announce the death of the founder and first president of Mid-Atlantic Christian University, George W. BonDurant. He went home to be with the Heavenly Father on July 11, 2017 at the age of 101.  President BonDurant was a leader in the Restoration Movement in the 20th century, a movement that saw believers and preachers from various denominational backgrounds seek unity by looking to the New Testament for guidance in matters of doctrine and spiritual disciplines. He grew up in Mt. Rainer, Maryland, the son of William W. and Helen Lawrence BonDurant, who were committed leaders in the Restoration Movement. BonDurant received a four year scholarship to Columbia University but his mother, concerned about his faith in a hostile atmosphere, sent him to Erieside Christian Service Camp.  After one year at Columbia University he transferred to the Cincinnati Bible Seminary.  There he met and married Sarah Lou Presley.  Together, George and Sarah reopened  Atlanta Christian College (now Point University), where he served as president.  In 1947 BonDurant came to eastern North Carolina as an evangelist for the Roanoke District Churches of Christ, the strongest concentration of New Testament churches on the east...
