Dimensions Program to Offer Details about University’s Outreach Ministries

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—Gardner-Webb University will spotlight its Christian mission work during Dimensions on Sept. 29. The program, which begins at 9:25 a.m. in the Lutz-Yelton Convocation Center, is free and open to the public.

Students, faculty and staff members will share mission experiences from the past year in places like Colorado and Honduras, and information tables will provide details about upcoming trips scheduled for the current academic year.

“One of the most telling passages of scripture about the mission of Jesus is Mark 10:45. ‘For the Son of man did not come to be served but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many,’” offered Dr. Tracy Jessup, vice president of Christian Life and Service and senior minister to the University. “Involvement in mission opportunities such as the ones we offer is simply one way of following the example of Jesus.”

The goal of Dimensions is to enhance the spiritual, intellectual and cultural life at the University and to promote a sense of community. More information about Dimensions and mission opportunities is available by calling 704-406-4277 or visiting

Auxiliary aids will be made available to persons with disabilities upon request 48 hours prior to the event. Please call 704-406-4253 or email with your request.
