Our hope is that this page will provide easy access to information about events and resources at Gardner-Webb. The Office of Church Relations speaks for Gardner-Webb in that we strongly believe we are partners with you in the work of the church. We will strive together to advance the Kingdom of God. If you need additional information, please contact us and let us know how we may be of help.

We want to connect churches to the resources of Gardner-Webb University and also connect students with the broader Christian church community. We are so grateful for your partnership in higher education and ministry. As the Apostle Paul wrote in his letter to the Philippians, “I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 1:3-6)

We thank you for your partnership in the Gospel and it is our prayer that our working together strengthens the Kingdom.

The Office of Church Relations is your entry to the educational and ministry resources here at Gardner-Webb including:

> Conferences and ministry events on campus
> Opportunities to plug students into local churches
> Ways to partner together in missions
> Answers to your questions about Gardner-Webb
> Requesting a Gardner-Webb presence at your church

We look forward to serving you!
