Tigerville, SC (June 5, 2023) Alumni, friends, and their families will gather in New Orleans on Tuesday, June 13, for NGU’s annual Alumni and Friends Connect during the Southern Baptist Convention.  Tickets are still available for the fellowship dinner at The World Famous Mulate’s Original Cajun Restaurant at 7 p.m. June 13. Mulate’s is at 201 Julia Street, diagonally across from the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

The menu for the evening will feature an array of New Orleans-inspired dishes, including mouthwatering Shrimp & Grits, Zydeco Gumbo, and other culinary delights. Guests will have the chance to savor the rich flavors of Cajun cuisine while enjoying the company of friends, family, and fellow NGU alumni.

“We are grateful to take the spirit of Christ and the mission of NGU to the birthplace of Jazz as we celebrate His work together,” said Assistant Vice President for Advancement and Alumni Engagement Lamont Sullivan.

During the dinner, NGU will present the Paula and Ken Hemphill Denominational Service Award to Dr. Gary Hollingsworth, retired executive director-treasurer of the South Carolina Baptist Convention. The award recognizes “servant leadership empowering Southern Baptists’ kingdom growth.”

NGU President Dr. Gene C. Fant, Jr. will provide an update on the university, offering insights into the latest developments, achievements, and plans of NGU. This is a unique opportunity for attendees to stay connected with the university and gain valuable insights into NGU’s ongoing commitment to academic excellence, spiritual growth, and community engagement.

Tickets for the family fellowship meal are $20 for adults and $7 for children age 4 to 12. Guests are encouraged to reserve their space for this memorable event as soon as possible, as availability is limited.

In addition to the Alumni and Friends Connect, messengers to the SBC Annual Meeting can visit with NGU personnel and alumni at the university’s exhibit space in the Morial Convention Center. “Just look for the big rotating NGU logo when you come into the exhibit hall,” said Sullivan.
