Legacy Christian Academy (LCA) announced the appointment of Dr. Kenneth Chapman Jr. to its Board of Trustees.
According to their website, LCA’s mission is to “[develop] strong leaders with biblical convictions who are equipped to succeed in college and beyond.” They currently enroll over 900 students from 35 different zip codes.
Chapman currently serves as a member of the instructional faculty at Texas Christian University’s Neeley School of Business. He is also a consultant and higher education administrator. Prior to his current role, he worked in administrative roles in other institutions like Oklahoma State University, The University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma Baptist University, and Dallas College.
“I’m excited to join the board at LCA because there’s no better way to serve God than through Christian education,” Chapman said in response to his appointment. “I’m a firm believer in the integration of faith and learning, and to be able to serve at Legacy is an honor and privilege.”
Chapman, a native of Oklahoma City, received his Bachelor’s degree in public relations and mass communications from the University of Central Oklahoma and earned both a Master’s degree in education and a Doctorate in philosophy from the University of Oklahoma.
Bill McGee, the Head of School, expressed his excitement over having Chapman join the school.
“I’m thrilled that Dr. Kenneth Chapman has accepted our invitation to serve on the LCA Board of Trustees. He adds value to our board with his years of experience in higher education, his pastoral background, and his commitment to Kingdom Unity from a thoroughly biblical perspective,” McGee said. “I’ve come to appreciate and enjoy his passion, his humor, and his wisdom. Legacy will benefit from this godly man of integrity who aligns with our mission and core values.”
Chapman, along with his wife Kimberly, have four sons and one daughter. All their children’s names start with the letter “K”: Kenneth III, Kole, Karter, Karson, and Kenley. The family serves at the Frisco-based Life Changing Christian Faith Fellowship.
There Chapman serves as the associate pastor. In this capacity, he is committed to showing the word and God’s love. He intends to take this same passion with him as he functions in his new role as Trustee.
“I’m humbled that God would allow me the opportunity to be part of such a great school,” Chapman said. “I’m looking forward to serving our families, faculty, and staff, and to working with Mr. McGee and the board to ensure that our school will change the world for the cause of Christ foremost for God’s glory and then for our benefit as his children.”
