In Support of Ben Williamson

Ben Williamson has been serving Ohio Christian University for ten years. In that time he has been the chairman of the religion department, an incredible professor, and a wonderful friend to all of the students that he has encountered. Recently, a personal marriage issue has put his future career at Ohio Christian University in question. On the issue, Williamson has been private, but he does explain that he has been going to counseling and that neither party has experienced infidelity. In fact, his denomination has supported him through this. He hasn't said a negative thing about his wife and just asks for prayers.

All of this is to give context to the issue at hand. Professor Williamson has been a role model to me and countless other students. He engages us in intense intellectual and theological discussions. He is always there for the students at OCU. He is a great professor, a great mentor, and a great friend. Professor Williamson has been a huge factor in my experience at OCU, and I'm happy to have learned from him.

The students look on with sorrow at the possibility of him not continuing to be a faculty member at OCU. His wonderful insight, humor, wisdom, and understanding are needed on this campus. We hope that you will pledge your support of him in this situation in order that the leaders of OCU might know how much his continued presence means to us.

We, with respect, support Professor Ben Williamson. 


I'd ask that everyone be respectful in their support. I have no doubt that Ohio Christian University's leadership is trying to do what is best for the students. Be Christ-like in all circumstances
