North Greenville University’s ‘influence felt’ in Southern Baptist Convention newly launched website, sbccalled.com.

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has launched a new website, sbccalled.com. The website provides information, resources, and training for high school and college students who feel called to ministry. The site's 38 authors include several connected to North Greenville University (NGU).

"I think it's possibly the most helpful tool that the SBC has come up with to empower students who are exploring the 'call of God' on their lives," said NGU Director of Community Connection and Ministry Mobilization Joshua Gilmore ('05, MCM' 07).

BJU Student Teacher

Bob Jones University President Steve Pettit announced today that the BJU School of Education is expanding its name to the School of Education and Human Services to better reflect its growing academic offerings.

“We’re adding to our programs in the Division of Educational, Child and Family Studies for students who want to work with children, youth and families outside a traditional classroom setting,” says Pettit.

New non-traditional program offerings prepare students to work in fields such as social and community services, youth sports and recreation, parent/family education, early care/child development, early intervention and special education services—fields which do not require teacher licensure. These programs provide opportunities to learn and serve in real-world settings guided by university and field-based mentors.
