Paul Faulkner

Paul Faulkner came to Abilene Christian as a student in 1949. Faulkner was NAIA national champion pole vaulter as a senior and Abilene Christian's top vaulter and javelin thrower all four seasons.

Faulkner graduated from ACU with a B.S. in 1952 and a master's in 1961. He earned his Ed.D. from Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth. He joined the ACU faculty in 1957, serving as Dean of Men from 1958-1965. He later taught Bible and founded and chaired the nationally renowned Marriage and Family Institute.

In 1974, Faulkner and Dr. Carl Brecheen began the Marriage Enrichment Seminar, an intensive 12-hour program designed to enrich, strengthen, and vitalize the marriage relationship. The seminar has since been filmed for distribution.

Faulkner currently serves as founder and chair of Resources for Living, a counseling and consulting service for major American businesses such as Wal-Mart, Sam's Wholesale Club, Kroger Grocery, and Bridgestone/Firestone. He has also been honored with the Distinguished Christian Service Award from Harding University and Pepperdine University.

Faulkner and his wife, Gladys ('52), have four children and eight grandchildren.
