Gardner-Webb University signed a partnership mission covenant with the Baptist General Association of Virginia (BGAV) on Nov. 12, becoming the first school outside the state of Virginia to do so. According to the BGAV, the purpose of the partnership is to help “fulfill the Great Commission through shared commitments and cooperative ministry, while at the same time maintaining the independence and distinct character of each.” “Gardner-Webb University exists to advance the Kingdom of God through Christian higher education,” said Tracy Jessup, vice president for Christian life and service and senior minister to the university.
