Mid-America Christian University continues its volunteerism ministry with the first ever MACU Day of Service, a nationwide event with participants from more than twenty states. On September 29—better known as the MACU Day of Service—students, faculty and staff members from across the country will band together to make a difference in their surrounding communities. In addition to three opportunities to volunteer at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and the Homeless Alliance, MACU encourages participation outside of the Oklahoma City metro area as well.
“To love one another is at the core of our Christian faith,” said MACU President Dr. John Fozard. “To serve others is an even greater expression of that faith.”
The Day of Service embodies the commitment to serving others that is woven through MACU’s curriculum. Every semester, traditional students fulfill twelve hours of community service at food banks, nursing homes, animal shelters, elementary schools, and more.

The College of Adult and Graduate Studies (CAGS) makes college education affordable and accessible to busy working adults and graduate students. Degree programs are offered online or on-ground at the main campus or through MACU’s north Oklahoma City location. MACU is an endorsed agency of the Church of God (Anderson, Indiana) and is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
