The ACU College of Business Administration continues to garner national praise as one of its faculty, Dr. Monty Lynn, has been given the Johnson Award from the Christian Business Faculty Association. Lynn received the award at the annual CBFA meeting at Southeastern University in Lakeland, Fla., Oct. 23.

Dr. Monty Lynn“It is a significant honor to be recognized by colleagues for a lifetime of business research and to be honored by an award that carries Dr. Sharon Johnson's name, a teacher-scholar and friend in Christian higher education,” says Lynn, associate dean of COBA and professor of management sciences.

Established by the CBFA to perpetuate the passion and commitment of integrating personal faith and business as modeled by Dr. Sharon Johnson, the award is given annually to encourage deserving individuals and make known their successes among colleagues, students and the world.

Nominations for the award come from CBFA members, and after references and records are reviewed, an award committee makes a recommendation to the organization’s board of directors.

“This award really goes to ACU and COBA for the opportunity and encouragement to produce quality research, as well as to colleagues and students at ACU and elsewhere who have served as research mentors and partners over the past 20 years,” says Lynn.

The Johnson Award recognizes intellectual contributions by Christian individuals who incorporate learning, business and faith into a dynamic process to promote faith integration in business.

The mission of the CFBA is to assist and encourage Christian business faculty in the study, integration, teaching and application of Biblical truths in service to the academy, students and the business community.
