Faith and academic excellence go hand-in-hand at Wingate University.
Wingate University strives to create an atmosphere in which students mature in their understanding and application of our motto: Faith, Knowledge, Service. Our cultural and religious programming allows students to grow in knowledge even beyond what is taught in the classroom.

College can be especially challenging for new students, sometimes overwhelming. We seek to reassure you that you are exactly where you are meant to be at this time in your life. Remember that you are not here alone.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” -Joshua 1:9
Even when that exam gets the best of you, or you think you’ll never finish that paper, keep in mind that it will all come together in the end. Every day is another opportunity to begin again.
“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” -Philippians 4:13
When you encounter obstacles, whether daily or on occasion, take the high road. If you maintain dignity and respect for yourself, you’ll come out on top.
“Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.” -Titus 2:7-8
Your work here, regardless of your major or future aspirations, is for a great cause, and God is with you.
“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.” -Colossians 3:23
Koinonia, (n): ‘communion and joint participation.’
Through the Koinonia community, we strive to connect students of all cultures and backgrounds with a deeper understanding of acceptance, service, and faith. We want to send them further down a spiritual path that goes beyond Bible studies and fellowship, and connect them with a deep spiritual insight with themselves, their peers, and their faith.

“And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.” Acts 2:42-47

Care packages are a wonderful way to show your student support and encouragement during final exams. Care packages will be delivered on Reading Day.
Student Ministries’ Care Package proceeds will fund student’s retreats, study materials and an upcoming mission trip to Jamaica during Spring Break of 2019. Students will be serving with Missionaries of the Poor during a life changing mission at a local Monastery in Kingston.
There are three types of care packages that you can purchase: basic, deluxe, and premium. Basic packages are a voluntary donation, while the deluxe and premium packages have a minimum donation amount. We receive voluntary donations from $1-$200 and everything in between. Each semester the average donation is between $20-$25. We are thankful for your participation.
