It is with great reluctance that the Kentucky Christian University Board of Trustees accepts the resignation of Dr. Jeff Metcalf as President and CEO of the University effective August 26, 2019, concurrent with the end of his current contract.
We deeply appreciate Dr. Metcalf for his 22 years of service to the University and nine as President and CEO. His commitment to furthering the mission of KCU and his leadership during a challenging period in the life of the University have strongly positioned KCU for the future. We respect his decision and appreciate his humility and thoughtfulness in allowing the Board ample time to conduct a careful and deliberate search for his successor.
The Board has begun the Presidential search process (as outlined in the Board of Trustees Manual) with a season of prayer and reflection. We ask you, our alumni, churches and supporters to join us in petitioning for God’s leading and guidance throughout the process of selecting the sixth president of the University.
When appropriate, and as we are able, we will keep you informed of the process. Please know that one of the first steps in the process will be to publish a position announcement and other pertinent information on the KCU website; please feel free to direct interested individuals to that resource. Also, should you have questions, concerns or suggestions for candidates, please feel free to contact me.
Chair, Board of Trustees
