Master's University Put on Probation by Accrediting Agency
Considering that the university is associated with the MacArthur-pastored Grace Community Church, the commission expressed concern with the fact that MacArthur and a number of cabinet-level leaders are "also on staff at GCC" while several staff members also attend GCC.

"The institution does not meet the WSCUC requirement for governing board independence since many members of the Board are employed by the institution or another organization for which the president has authority," the July 18 letter to TMUS reads. "According to the WSCUC Governing Board Policy, 'for an institutional governing board to be considered independent, a majority of its members may not have interests that influence their impartial decision making, create multiple and potentially conflicting relationships, or result in competing loyalties.' Board members cannot independently evaluate a Chief Executive Officer to whom they ...

Chris G.P., what I can see the Master's Seminary which might be designated as a college or department in the University are all that separate.  They look closely connected to me, For what Wikipedia had to say, and that might have to be taken with a grain of salt in this instance:But anyway thanks for bringing the topic up.

Penny, Bob Jones U, gave up its racist ways [See Randall Balmer,  [URL=]]]    (The Real Origins of the Religious Right)[/URL] ] and has become accredited since 2017 [URL=]]]   (Bob Jones University earns long-sought accreditation)[/URL].

As far as Bible Commentaries go, John MacArthur's is considered one of the best, This looks like an excellent value, [URL=]]]   (NKJV MacArthur Study Bible, Revised & Updated Edition, Leathersoft, Raven)[/URL], for example. You can look around for a better price of course and you should find the ESV and NASB versions out there as well. The original which I have is excellent!  But there is a book out with just his commentariies and you could use that with KJV.

Probation Status
As of July 18, 2018, The Master's University and Seminary was placed under probation by its accrediting institution, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.[2] According to the letter sent by WASC to its president John F. MacArthur, WASC found TMUS in violation of multiple standards of accreditation, including competing loyalties amount its Board of Directors, a lack of operational integrity, and a pattern of unethical treatment among faculty and staff. In addition, WASC's visiting team observed and received reports of a climate of fear, intimidation, bullying, and uncertainty among significant numbers of faculty and staff.[3] Furthermore, WASC released a statement stating its "extreme concern" that TMUS may be in violation of required reporting responsibilities under the Clery Act, the Violence Against Women Act, and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.[4] TMUS has less than two years to take action to fix the problems WASC discovered, otherwise TMUS' accreditation will be withdrawn.

The Master’s University and the Master’s Seminary are, I believe, two separate institutions.

Master’s University is in a separate campus some distance from Grace Community Church, and was a Christian University (a liberal arts university) that was taken over by John MacArthur, at the request of its then Trustees, several years ago, and this is the institution that is being threatened by the accrediting body.

Master’s Seminary is a completely separate theological college that has always been owned and run by John MacArthur and Grace Community Church, and I believe is in the grounds of the church campus, and is not subject to this accreditation threat.

Non “ accredited “ seminary is best , especially from a federal lending program that has say on everything regardless of faith and practice.

Bob Jones University probably would like to stay out of such spotlights since they were --let's hope inadvertently--one of the reasons for the founding of the Religious Right. [See Randall Balmer, [URL=]]] (The Real Origins of the Religious Right)[/URL] ] They probably have made the powers-that-be in their region happy, if that is what they wanted to do.

Master's Seminary is one of the premier seminaries in United States. I can't see where the restrictions will cause undo problems still are a nuisance, they can be fairly easily met. This accreditation board somewhat reminds me of wanting this idea for a university that it can also be applied to church elders as well.

Dr. Daniel Wallace wrote:
The early church had, I believe, multiple elders. The pastor would have been counted among them, but was not over them. Indeed, all would have taught, not just one. If we can get back to this model, I think that churches will be stronger in many ways. They will be less idiosyncratic, less dependent on one person, more accountable.

(1) mutual accountability is necessary if leaders are to avoid falling into sin; and (2) a church takes on the personality of its leader/s: if there is just one leader, the church will inevitably take on that man's personality, including his quirks and faults. But if more than one person leads the church, there is the greater chance that the church will be balanced.

My initial thought was that this institution is under fire for being Christian. But there do appear to be real concerns. Still, having theologically conservative, Biblical standards will cause some to claim a lack of independence and lack of freedom of thought.

It would be best if Master's became more equally yoked with accreditation from a Christian entity rather than a secular one.
