Now it seems that there have been some financial irregularities to go on top of the religious ones. Adams writes:
The present crisis dates back to 2009 when one of the founders of the National Association of Christian Athletes (NACA) was accused of sexual molestation. A proposal was made to sell a property owned by NACA, which is known as the Fort Bluff Camp, for an amount of $2.5 million. This would have covered NACA’s debt at the time, which was $900,000. Thus, it would have left them $1.6 million in the black. This is where Bryan College President Stephen Livesay gets involved. This is also where the gross financial misconduct begins.It goes downhill from there.According to Adams and other sources with whom I have spoken personally, the board is now little more than a mouthpiece for Livesay. The last person who would stand up to him resigned from the board last year, as Adams notes. From other sources, it became known that, as of a few years ago, Stephen Livesay was paying himself over $300k a year as president. This after telling Todd Wood and the CORE Institute that the college didn't have the funds to continue supporting the institute. This is going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better. I hope that Bryan survives. We were down there for a summer institute last summer with my son, Marcus, and it is a very pretty campus and the people there were very friendly.
Livesay managed to defeat the proposal to sell the land with an alternate proposal to get rid of the then-existing 13-member NACA Board. Livesay proposed a new 15-member NACA Board be put in its place. Elevating audacity to a Zen art form, Livesay suggested the following composition for the new NACA Board: Nine new members from the Bryan College Board and six members from the existing NACA Board. Unbelievably, Livesay proposed that he would be the one to choose all 15 members.
