Oklahoma Christian University President Dr. Mike O’Neal has been named to the board of directors of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU). 

Based in Washington, D.C., CCCU is a consortium of 180 member and affiliate Christian colleges and universities in 24 countries. The organization represents the interests of faith-based education before government agencies and Congress and seeks to advance the cause of Christ-centered higher education through helping its institutions transform lives by faithfully relating scholarship and service to biblical truth. The CCCU offers numerous overseas study programs, along with film studies, American studies, and other special educational opportunities for students from its member institutions. 

Since being named president of Okahoma Christian in 2002, O’Neal has overseen a major financial restructuring of the university, four consecutive years of record enrollment, the addition of new programs, a 25% increase in faculty, and a strengthening of the academic programs. During his presidency, the university has completed a $34 million residential construction and refurbishment project and several other improvements to the campus.

He has been a member of the California and Arkansas bar associations, American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the Oklahoma and Arkansas Boards of Public Accountancy. O’Neal has served on the boards of directors of several nonprofit organizations, including current service on the boards of the Last Frontier Council of the Boys Scouts of America, Mercy Hospital System of Oklahoma, the Academy of Leadership & Liberty, The Christian Chronicle, and the Rwanda Outreach & Community Foundation. 

O’Neal served as an officer in the U.S. Navy in Vietnam, receiving a Bronze Star for meritorious service. He is currently active in Rotary Club 29 in downtown Oklahoma City. 

O’Neal and his wife, Nancy, live in Oklahoma City and attend Memorial Road Church of Christ.
