NGU Begins New Academic Year With Worship, Celebration

North Greenville University began the 2018-2019 academic year with a time of worship, reflection, and celebration during a campus-wide chapel service on Thursday, August 16.

President Fant read from Ephesians 4 and delivered a message of unity.

“North Greenville University exists to glorify God. If Christ is not present, it is impossible to have unity. We are all ministers of the Gospel,” said Fant. “We have a unified calling.”

President Fant also reflected on accomplishments from the previous school year and spoke about the next phases of the university’s history.

In addition, the university honored staff members who have reached milestone years of service. The following staff members were presented a plaque from President Fant during the chapel service:
