Dr. David Chadwick to Address Gardner-Webb Community in Upcoming Dimensions Program

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. – Gardner-Webb University welcomes pastor, author and radio personality Dr. David Chadwick as the guest speaker for the upcoming Dimensions Program for the University’s Holy Week Service. The program will take place on Tuesday, March 26 at 9:25 a.m. in the Lutz-Yelton Convocation Center.

A native of North Carolina, Chadwick graduated from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he played basketball and was a member of 1969 NCAA Final Four basketball team under Coach Dean Smith. Reflecting on his years at UNC-Chapel Hill, he has written The Twelve Leadership Principles of Dean Smith and has developed a leadership seminar in conjunction with the book. He has also written the books My Father, My Friend and Moments of Hope, which was written after the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Chadwick has been the Senior Pastor of Forest Hill Church (Charlotte, N.C.) since 1980. During his weekly radio program The David Chadwick Show, which airs on WBT 1110 AM (Charlotte, N.C.), Chadwick addresses contemporary issues from a faith and values perspective. In addition to his undergraduate degree in communications, he also has a degree in counseling from the University of Florida (Gainesville, Fla.) and a Master of Divinity and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Columbia Theological Seminary (Decatur, Ga.).

“Whether he is speaking to his congregation during one of his multiple weekend worship services or hosting his local radio show, Dr. Chadwick has an exceptional ability to address contemporary issues from a biblical perspective,” said Dr. Tracy Jessup, vice president of Christian Life and Services and senior minister at Gardner-Webb University. “We are grateful that he can speak to us for the University Holy Week Service.”
