The Magazine for Alumni and Friends of Campbellsville University
President’s Report                                                                 December 2002

     Slightly more than three years ago while making our first visit to Campbellsville
University, my wife Debbie and I drove through the campus and walked its tree-lined sidewalks,
greeted along the way by warm, smiling faculty and students. After we had toured nearly every
facility, it immediately struck me that Campbellsville University had no formal facility to hold
her corporate worship services. The nearly century old institution was in need of a chapel.
     All of us pray for many things--peace in troubled times, food and shelter for the hungry
and homeless, healthy and prosperous lives, successful careers, and safety of our children.
These, too, are part of my daily prayers. I must admit, though, I began earnestly praying that
God would somehow, someday bring to Campbellsville University an individual or family whose
heart burned with the same desire as mine and others on our campus to fund the construction
of a new chapel facility where our university community could praise and worship God.
     For the past several years, Campbellsville University’s continuous enrollment growth
has forced us to conduct chapel services in the gymnasium of the Powell Athletic Center.
Although we can worship God no matter the condition or location of our surroundings,
                                            we placed as the top priority the construction
                                            of a chapel.
                                                 After much prayer, God answered us by sending
                                            Louisville trustee George Ransdell and his wife,
                                            Marie. This godly couple recently announced their
                                            intention to provide a $1 million lead gift toward the
                                            construction of what will be known as The George
                                            W. and Marie T. Ransdell Chapel.
                                                 The heart of a Christian university is its chapel.

       FCA national president shares message of Christ and character
       at CU

            Dal Shealy, national president of the
       Fellowship of Christian Athletes, shared
       the message of Christ along with encour-
       agement and motivational thoughts to
       athletes at a visit to Campbellsville
            He encouraged the young people, at
       several sessions, to seek discipline and
       character in their lives and to strive to be
       positive role models. He also spent time
       promoting FCA’s “One Way to Play” pro-
       gram, which works to keep athletes away
       from drugs and alcohol. He pointed out
       that most of the discipline and life prob-
       lems of players that he had to deal with
       as a coach almost always traced back to
       alcohol. He challenged each group to
       “be the very best they could be.”
