Celebration Week 2018

Gardner-Webb University Campus Ministries Holds Annual Celebration Week

Members of the Gardner-Webb University community will unite to worship and glorify the Lord during the annual Celebration Week, planned Jan. 22-26. Hosted by Gardner-Webb’s Campus Ministries, this year’s featured speaker is Casey Williams, senior pastor of North Trenholm Baptist Church in Columbia, S.C.

Williams grew up in Houston, Texas, before his family moved to Mississippi, where he became a follower of Christ at the age of 16. He began serving churches at age 18 and has preached at churches and youth events across the Southeast.

He earned a bachelor’s degree in religion from William Carey College (Hattiesburg, Miss.) and a master of divinity from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary (New Orleans, La.). He is pursuing a doctorate in intercultural studies from Western Seminary in Portland, Ore. Williams previously served on the staffs of churches in Mississippi and Louisiana. He and his wife, Kate, have three children: Ayla, Chandler and Caden. He assumed the role of senior pastor at North Trenholm Baptist last June.

Celebration Week consists of five services in three days, including morning services Tuesday and Thursday at 9:25 a.m. in the Tucker Student Center, where Williams will speak.

All Celebration Week services are free and open to the public. More information is available by calling 704-406-3273.
