Assistant Vice President for Development and Denominational Relations
Connections for the Kingdom
The Office of Church Relations seeks to support the vision and mission of CSU by strengthening the relationships with churches, pastors, alumni, and the South Carolina Baptist Convention (SCBC). We also connect with like-minded churches, organizations, individuals, and prospective students outside the SCBC and SBC. Our students, faculty, and staff attend and serve in hundreds of churches and ministries throughout the Low Country of South Carolina.
Our efforts break down into these channels of activity:
- Traveling to churches and associations to tell the CSU story and to thank them for trusting CSU with their students.
- Developing and sponsoring events for pastors and churches in South Carolina, the South Carolina Baptist Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention.
- Cultivating relationships and partnering with ministries of the South Carolina Baptist Convention, the SBC, and other Christian Institutions of higher learning.
If you are a pastor (or representing a church) who is interested in hiring a CSU student as a minister at your church, please contact the CSU Career Center here.
If you are a CSU student looking for a church family in the Charleston area, check out local church lists on the following Baptist association sites:
You may also reach out to the Assistant Vice President of Denominational Relations for information on other churches in friendly cooperation with our CSU family. We desire that all of our Bucs connect with a local church and become active members of a church family during their college years.
