MACU Motorcycle Rally & Charity Ride is READY TO ROLL Sept. 6th! Memorial Ride for D. Q. Roberts and Bob Morton. The day starts with a continental breakfast at the beautiful river-front campus of Mid-Atlantic Christian University (MACU) in Elizabeth City, NC. The ride route will take about two hours to drive, with a break in the middle for refreshments. When the ride finishes back at the MACU campus you will enjoy a nice lunch and a brief presentation from a super guy who loves people and loves to ride his motorcycle. Pete Kunkle, senior minister at First Christian Church of Kernersville, NC, will be the guest speaker and will ride his bike with the group. Invite your clubs and friends. This year's ride will be a memorial to D.Q. Roberts of Christian Riders Ministry. D.Q. and Beth have ministered to hundreds of bikers and led many to Christ. MACU loves cross cultural ministry and we honor the work D. Q. completed. We also continue to remember Bob Morton during the ride. Bob was such a blessing to us and to so many others he shared the Gospel with.

Woolard Named Teacher of the Year, Honored for 40 Years of Teaching Perhaps some teachers feel burned out around the 25th or 30th year of service. Mid-Atlantic’s Teacher of the Year, Professor Ronnie J. Woolard, has just completed his 40th year on the faculty of Mid-Atlantic Christian University and shows no – or at least very few – signs of stopping. He remains relevant and vibrant in the classroom. Ronnie Jay Woolard is an Eastern North Carolina native, having been born and reared in Washington, NC. Long before he was a professor at Mid-Atlantic, or even a student, he loved the school and the professors. He grew up in a church with the school’s founding president, George BonDurant, as his preacher and attended Camp Roanoke. Following high school, where he excelled in leadership, academics, and athletics, he entered Mid-Atlantic to prepare for a life in ministry. His ministry has taken the form of teaching others who will then preach and serve others. He is a Mid-Atlantic graduate and furthered his education with an MA in Old Testament and an MDiv in Theology....
