Northwest Nazarene University Chaplain Gene Schandorff has been named as the 2009 recipient for the Dana Walling award by the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU).

Reverend Gene Schandorff was given a plaque at a Campus Ministries Conference earlier this month in recognition of this achievement.  His life has manifested an obvious dedication to ministry in many ways. Since 1992, Gene has served as University Chaplain at NNU. Between 1995 and the present, Reverend Gene Schandorff has been adjunct professor of Bible and Theology at Northwest Nazarene University.

Prior to coming to NNU, Gene was Senior Pastor at two prominent Nazarene churches in Long Beach and Arcata, California.  Before this, he served as Minister to Youth in Ventura and Anaheim, California.

Reverend Gene Schandorff is one of only five recipients of the Dana Walling award.  The award is decided by the Campus Ministries Commission of the CCCU, which also solicits opinions from across the country.

Dana Walling, for whom the award was named, was the campus pastor at Point Loma Nazarene University whose life exemplified the fullness of the love of Jesus Christ to his students.  He served on the Commission and was loved all across the country, but died of cancer at a relatively young age in 2000.

The Council for Christian Colleges & Universities is a higher education association of 182 intentionally Christ-centered institutions around the world. There are now 105 member campuses in North America and all are fully-accredited, comprehensive colleges and universities with curricula rooted in the arts and sciences. In addition, 77 affiliate campuses from 24 countries are part of the CCCU.
