Wingate University is committed to integrating Christian thought with dynamic Christian living. Its religious heritage ensures that freedom of conscience is respected and religious conformity is never demanded. At Wingate University, Christian truth is not only present in the classroom, but also evident in the lives of faculty and students who represent the full spectrum of beliefs. Wingate seeks to be the place where students discover and grow into their own beliefs. Student Ministries at Wingate seeks to lead students “to love God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength and love their neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12). Student Ministries also seeks to guide students toward a faith and faith living that will last a lifetime. Our office is located in the DPC—come in and sit in the most comfortable couch on campus.
Chapel: Each Thursday morning at 11 a.m., the University community is invited to worship together. Chapel services are created to offer a variety of topics and formats.
Breathe: Each Wednesday evening at 9 p.m., students meet to participate in our Breathe Worship Services. Breathe is designed and led by students and offers contemporary songs and worship formats.
The Christian Student Union, Campus Outreach, Chi Rho (Catholic Student Organization), Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Greek Impact engage in small group Bible study, prayer and service to those in need. All religious clubs and organizations meet weekly for a common worship. On weekends, students attend a variety of churches and congregations throughout the area. The Office of Student Ministries can help students find and connect with churches to match their faith background.
The Office of Student Ministries also provides funding and resources to help students connect with local and foreign opportunities for service in churches and missions projects.
