The Board of Trustees of Cincinnati Christian University announces the appointment of Dr. David Ray as the university’s interim president. The Board selected Dr. Ray to ensure a smooth leadership transition to the next full-time president of CCU. He will serve as interim president until the new President is appointed.

Dr. Ray has led churches in Tennessee, Indiana, and Ohio, including over 18 years at Parkside Christian Church in Cincinnati and 5 years with Christ’s Church at Mason. Since 2011, David has been on the faculty of Cincinnati Christian University as Professor of Practical Ministries. In July 2013 he became Dean of Cincinnati Bible Seminary and most recently (in 2015) assumed the role of Dean of CCU’s Russell School of Ministry.

David received his bachelor degree from Johnson University (Tennessee), a Master of Divinity from Emmanuel Christian Seminary (Tennessee), and his Doctor of Ministry from Southern Seminary (Kentucky). Dr. Ray will continue to serve as dean of the Seminary during this interim period.
