In June 1960, a new institution of higher learning was officially founded, under the leadership of pastors from the Sun Valley Conservative Baptist Association in Phoenix, Arizona. They called it Southwestern Conservative Baptist Bible College. Today, reflecting the growth of the college and the expansion of its mission, we know it simply as Arizona Christian University. Over the 50 years that have passed, the world as we know it has changed so dramatically that even the most imaginative minds of that time would have been stretched to conceive of the changes to come. Virtually every area of human existence-politics, education, science, technology, medicine, how we relate to one another, even how we worship-all have been re-thought, re-shaped, and re-invented.
