Restoration Day

and Packer Forum Dedication


Please join us Saturday, September 7, from 10:00 a.m - 1 p.m. as we celebrate the dedication of the Barry and Diane Packer Forum with a ribbon-cutting ceremony including former ACU board chair and trustee Dr. Barry Packer (’78) and his wife, Diane (Stephens ’77) who are namesakes of the project.

The Packer Forum is a new event and student collaboration space that overlooks the campus from the library’s top floor.  When complete the Forum will host individual study, small group coworking, and university events up to 150 people. 

After the dedication, we will celebrate the 210th Anniversary of Thomas Campbell’s Declaration and Address with a lunch and congregational worship to include the ACU Chorus and a keynote lecture by Dr. Wes Crawford:  “Christian Only, But Not the Only Christians:  A Restoration Plea for 21st Century America”

Please RSVP by August 30th here.
