Wood Earns Credentials

Elizabeth City, NC – September 12, 2012 - Keith Wood, Vice President for Development at Mid-Atlantic Christian University (MACU) recently earned the status Credentialed Christian Nonprofit Leader (CCNL).

Christian Leadership Alliance (CLA) and Azusa Pacific University (APU) jointly created the new Credentialed Christian Nonprofit Leader (CCNL) program to promote “biblical principles and professional standards in Christian ministry leadership.” 

Wood, who has been MACU’s chief development officer since 2008, said, “I have always valued life-long learning and career development, particularly in my chosen areas of ministry service.  The CLA and Azusa Pacific University have developed a world class program of Christian nonprofit leadership development.  During the credentialing process, I had the opportunity to learn from such great Christian leaders as John Maxwell, Patrick Lencioni, Ken Blanchard, and many others.  I look forward to continuing to implement many of the things I have learned through the CCNL process in the Development office here at Mid-Atlantic.” 

President Clay Perkins noted, “We congratulate Vice President Wood on this achievement. It is an honor for Mid-Atlantic that our chief development officer has earned this designation. We anticipate benefiting from his studies in this process.”

The mission of CLA is to exhort, equip and empower Christian leaders to think biblically and lead effectively as faithful stewards in the service of Jesus Christ.
