Posted on: August 31, 2023
Tigerville, SC (Aug. 31, 2023) More than 80 local churches attended North Greenville University’s (NGU) Church Fair on Aug. 17, marking a record turnout for the annual event.
“The event has grown extraordinarily,” said Joshua Gilmore, director of community connection and ministry mobilization at NGU.
“We had only six churches back in 2018,” he said. “In 2022, we had 72 churches. This year, we had an amazing 88 churches working together to reach NGU students.”
Participating churches set up tents on the Tigerville campus, connecting with students and giving away essential back-to-school items.
“The mission of NGU is to equip transformation leaders for church and society. The church fair draws a direct line to NGU’s mission,” Gilmore said. “We want NGU students to know that the local church is vitally important and strategically stands in support of NGU’s student body.”
