OCU Announces New Chaplain for Adult Program

OCU Chaplain, "Pastor Mac"

Ohio Christian University (OCU) is pleased to announce a new chaplain who will serve students in the College of Adult and Graduate Studies. Pastor M. R. McCrary (Pastor Mac) hails from a small community in southern Indiana, where he began in ministry as a teenager. By age 19, he had answered the call to pastoral ministry and has since given 55 years of his life to pastoral and evangelical service. Pastor Mac notes the highlight of his ministry has been “working with students and youth.”

As the Chaplain for Adult and Graduate students, Pastor Mac will support OCU students on their spiritual journeys as they pursue their educational goals. He will serve students, faculty, and staff of the university through encouragement and prayer. Pastor Mac’s alma mater is the former Frankfort Pilgrim College in Frankfort, Indiana.

In conjunction with the new Chaplaincy, OCU’s Information Technology team recently announced the addition of a new web application to enhance student services. The university is investing in students by providing new services and ministries. The new myOCU provides centralized access to systems and resources for the OCU community, such as access to the chaplaincy page where students can send prayer requests to Pastor Mac and access tutorials, academic resources, and new communication tools.
