NGU Announces Academic Reorganization of College of Christian Studies
“North Greenville University is dedicated to educating present and future pastors, missionaries, and church staff to be transformational leaders for church and society. With this move, we are bringing all of our biblical, theological, and applied ministry programs together in one unified college,” said Dr. Nathan A. Finn, NGU’s provost and dean of the university faculty.
Effective June 1, the university will have a unified COCS that will include traditional undergraduate, non-traditional undergraduate, and graduate programs. Dr. Walter Johnson will serve as dean of this College.
”Within the COCS, Dr. Jeff Rankin will serve as the associate dean of undergraduate programs, which include the traditional programs in Christian Studies offered on the Tigerville campus. Dr. Matt Wireman will serve as associate dean of the School of Ministry, which will offer both non-traditional and graduate programs aimed at adult learners already serving in ministry or making a mid-career transition into ministry.
“Dean Walter Johnson is a respected theologian and preacher among Baptists throughout the Carolinas, and he is the perfect person to lead the College of Christian Studies,” said Finn. “Drs. Rankin and Wireman are exemplary scholars, gifted classroom teachers, and dedicated Baptist churchmen.”
The changes will not reduce NGU’s academic offerings or diminish access for students. The reorganization will build on intellectual connections and enhance potential opportunities for students and faculty members.
