Board of Church Advisors provides spiritual support for Wingate University faculty, staff and students.

The Wingate University Board of Church Advisors was founded and organized to provide spiritual and financial support to the student ministry program for Wingate University. In the early years, Wingate University ratified a covenant with the church by codifying a relationship with the North Carolina Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. Today, Wingate University is poised to create a larger table for collaborative engagement on matters of spiritual identity, faith formation, vocational exploration and service.

The Board of Church Advisors has partnered with the university to help address the need for meeting the demands of a growing student ministry to a denominationally diverse student body, to actively engage church and community lay and clergy leaders in the ongoing dialogue of Church and Academy, and to increase financial and advocacy support for ongoing and new initiatives to support the spiritual life of the faculty, staff and students.

Members reflect the diversity of our university community.

The Board of Church Advisors membership is gathered from churches, local service agencies and mission agencies that reflect diversity in denominational affiliation, ethnic background and lay/clergy leadership status.

Members are committed to serve in the following areas:

  • As ambassadors in the church and community by hosting and recruiting
  • As advisors and advocates, with a primary responsibility to assist in covenant review
  • As collegiate servers to mentor, teach and provide internships
  • As financial supporters on a personal level
