Student Ministries

Wingate University is committed to integrating Christian thought with dynamic Christian living. Its religious heritage ensures that freedom of conscience is respected and religious conformity is never demanded. At Wingate University, Christian truth is not only present in the classroom, but also evident in the lives of faculty and students who represent the full spectrum of beliefs. Wingate seeks to be the place where students discover and grow into their own beliefs. Student Ministries at Wingate seeks to lead students “to love God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength and love their neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12). Student Ministries also seeks to guide students toward a faith and faith living that will last a lifetime. Our office is located in the DPC—come in and sit on the most comfortable couches on campus.

The Office of Student Ministries empowers students to experience God, to grow in community, and to take grace into the world.


Student Ministries offers several ways for students to get involved in a Christian environment at Wingate University.



BREATHE is a student led worship service offered each Wednesday evening at 9:00pm in Helms Forum in the DPC. It is a time for students from different denominations, campus groups and backgrounds to come together as one body to fellowship and worship. BREATHE typically consists of praise music, scripture and devotional.

University Worship

University Worship provides opportunity for students to engage in traditional worship every other week on Sunday afternoon. Led by Rev. Dane Jordan, topics and programming involves blended music along with relevant topics on faith development.

The Center for Vocational Ministry

The Wingate University CENTER for Vocational Ministry is a community designed to help students discover and discern a call into ministry.  For us, ministry, falls under a large umbrella that includes being a church leader, community advocate, or service provider to those in need.  We have a wide variety of students from different faith backgrounds and studying different majors from Religious Studies to Music Education to Pre-Nursing. This group allows students to have an open mind about ministry and think about diverse vocations.  Current members of The CENTER include students that want to be involved in medical missions, church leadership, music ministry, or work in human service agencies. The CENTER offers scholarships to students that provides tuition help as well as textbook allotments.  To be a part of this meaningful process of discernment, devotion and faith development prospective students may submit an application.   An interview will follow conducted by the Student Ministries Office. If you are interested in learning more, contact Dane Jordan at, Jennifer Nelson at or call the Student Ministries Office at 704-233-8026.
