Dr. David Faust Resignation
Cincinnati Christian University Announces Presidential Transition
Dr. David Faust announced today to the Board of Trustees his intent to resign as President of Cincinnati Christian University. Faust, the seventh President in the school’s history, will continue to serve in the role through May 2014. In a letter to the CCU Family, Faust revealed that he and his wife Candy “sense a growing desire to serve in the local church for the next season of our ministry.” He will transition to a ministry staff position with the East 91st Street Christian Church in Indianapolis Indiana, where he served as Senior Minister between 1999 and 2002.
Faust has served twenty years at CCU—eight of those as a professor and twelve as president. “Candy and I have given our all to this job,” wrote Faust. “We love CCU and we will continue to be strong advocates for the school. We believe passionately in CCU’s mission, and we treasure the positive relationships we enjoy with students, alumni, faculty, staff, donors, board members, church and community leaders, and other stakeholders.”
At the conclusion of his presidency Faust will continue to serve as CCU’s part-time Chancellor at the discretion of the new President; he will not be responsible for day-to-day operations but will continue as an advisor, assisting with public relations and fund-raising. H. David Hale, chairman of the Board of Trustees remarked, “Dr. Faust has served faithfully with great distinction and dedication to CCU. We wish him and his wife Candy well with their new ministry.”
