Tigerville, SC (Aug. 25, 2023) North Greenville University (NGU) students, faculty, and staff will come together to read scripture on the Tigerville campus for 100 consecutive hours, beginning on Aug. 28.

“One of NGU’s core values is being Biblically Faithful,” said Jared Thomas, NGU’s vice president for Campus Ministry and Student Engagement (CMSE).

“The avenue to highlight this core value is to commit 100 hours straight to the reading of God’s Word,” he said.

Beginning at 8 a.m. on Aug. 28 and ending on Sept. 1 at noon, scripture will be continuously read in front of the university’s prayer chapel.

Thomas said the event will highlight the importance of God’s Word and serves as a reminder to remain faithful to the truths of scripture.

Sign-ups are available online. Those wishing to participate can reserve a 30-minute time slot at any time during the week-long event.

“It’s a great way to begin the year and a way for our students, faculty and staff to be part of something bigger than themselves,” Thomas said.
