The top two pastors of a nondenominational Christian church that’s been active at the University of New Mexico for years have been banned from campus for allegedly entering dorms and other buildings without authorization or escorts and for holding unauthorized services in campus buildings.
In addition, the charter for the Lobos for Christ student group affiliated with the New Covenant Christian Church has been suspended.
UNM notified pastors Jim Cooper and Kirk Walker of New Covenant Christian Church of the ban in letters dated April 8 and obtained by the Journal through an Inspection of Public Records Act request. The letters also said their presence on campus “significantly negatively impacted former church and Lobos for Christ members who are currently students.”
The church’s current ministers have not been banned.
