NGU’s Renovated Craft-Hemphill Missions Center to be Dedicated April 29
Posted on: April 26, 2022
Tigerville, SC (April 26, 2022) Celebrating the renovation and expanded academic focus of a campus landmark, North Greenville University (NGU) will host a dedication ceremony for Craft-Hemphill Missions Center on the university’s Tigerville campus Friday, April 29. The celebration will begin with an open house at noon, followed by the dedication ceremony at 12:30 p.m. in the center.
Craft-Hemphill Missions Center opened in 2011, serving the NGU community with resources designed to promote global missions engagement. In 2021, the center was renovated and became home to the university’s College of Christian Studies. The building also houses NGU’s Institute for Global Leadership, which coordinates student service work around the world. Two key aspects of the renovation were re-working the Mission Control Auditorium on the lower level of the two-story structure, and redesigning the William C. “Bill” and Shirley H. Adams Lobby at the building’s entrance to serve as an inviting student gathering space.
“This building is a unique ministry resource for our campus, and it is fitting to have Craft-Hemphill as home to our vital College of Christian Studies,” said NGU President Dr. Gene C. Fant, Jr. “Since it opened, Craft-Hemphill has been a resource to help students embrace and convey a comprehensive Christian worldview. This renovation enables us to fulfill that purpose in an even stronger way.”
The 12,000-square-foot center includes nine offices, four classrooms, three resource rooms, a conference room, and an auditorium space with a two-story-high ceiling.
