A Life's Work. A Lasting Legacy. – Dr. Tony ('59 M.A.) and Barbara Ash
Dr. Tony ('59 M.A.) and Barbara Ash have dedicated their lives to spreading the Good News and serving the students of ACU.
Ever since Tony joined the College of Biblical Studies faculty in 1963, the Ashes have been a consistent, loving presence on campus. Tony retired from teaching full time in 2015, but he can still be regularly found on campus discussing Scripture with other faculty members and engaging students in the halls and sharing his wisdom (and his pockets full of candy).
"Our life's work has been here, getting to know our students and prayerfully hoping they will go out and make an impact for God's Kingdom," Barbara said.
It was no wonder that when it came time for the Ashes to plan for their estate, ACU and specifically its legacy of raising up faith leaders was high on their list.
"Ministers, their families and their churches need care and mentoring," Tony said. "The Siburt Institute for Church Ministry at ACU uniquely provides support for these servants with compassion and love. Our hope is that our last gift will help these families and churches continue to grow."
You can direct estate gifts to ACU by including language in your will or living trust, or by designating the university as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy. Remembering ACU and our programs through an estate gift helps sustain and strengthen the university for years to come.
