Church Relations

The Church Relations Office seeks to serve congregations while also raising funds to teach the Bible to all Faulkner students and train preachers. The relationship we have with churches is mutually beneficial. As churches support our efforts, Faulkner provides the following services:

  • Provide substitute/guest preachers
  • Arrange workshops and seminars by Faulkner faculty
  • Maintain a job bank of available church minister positions (email slong@faulkner.edu for more information)
  • Conduct a weekend meeting organized and presented by Faulkner students
  • Organize a retreat/workshop/seminar for elders at various locations

Church-enriching events

In conjunction with Faulkner’s V.P. Black College of Biblical Studies, the Church Relations Office presents the following annual events that support the growth of the local church:

Faulkner Lectures

The Bible Lectureship program is held the first week of March each year on the Faulkner campus.

LeadersConnect

LeadersConnect is an annual retreat in June for church elders, leaders and their wives held on the Faulkner campus. The purpose of this retreat is to provide valuable information about the unique responsibilities of an eldership, and to allow shepherds to encourage one another, share experiences and develop loving relationships.

Preachers’ Challenge

Take the challenge and share the Gospel!

V.P. Black

When V.P. Black donated the revenue from two speaking engagements to the training of aspiring preachers studying at Faulkner University, he challenged other preachers and leaders to join him. Preachers’ Challenge has since raised more than $1 million to benefit Faulkner University’s V.P. Black College of Biblical Studies.

Each year preachers are challenged to donate or raise $1,000 or more for the college. These donations provide vital funds for Bible instruction for ALL Faulkner students. Thanks to the support of preachers and churches, more than 42,000 Faulkner students have been taught the gospel through Bible courses.
