Houston minister awarded ACU Change the World Award

For immediate release
Sept. 5, 2002

Abilene Christian University presented the eighth Change the World award to Steve Sandifer, a preaching minister in Houston, on Sunday.

ACU alumnus Donald Booker presented the award to Sandifer at Southwest Central Church of Christ, where Sandifer was also being honored for his 25 years of service as minister at the Houston church.

Sandifer received his bachelor's degree from ACU in 1970 and his master's degree in 1972. He and his wife, Jo (Butler), worked as missionaries in England for several years before moving to Houston. Sandifer has published a book on the subject of deacons and has been a frequent class teacher at ACU's lectureships.

The purpose of ACU's Change the World Award is:

  •  To recognize individuals or groups who are touching lives in a positive way and making a difference, in large ways or small.

  •  To tie directly to ACU's mission of educating students for Christian service and leadership throughout the world.

  •  And to allow ACU to demonstrate in a visible, consistent way that we want to Change the World in a positive way - and not simply let the world pass us by.

"'Change the World' is an important theme at ACU because we believe our faculty, staff, students and alumni do change the world through their Christian service and leadership," said Dr. Royce Money, ACU president.
