WAXAHACHIE, TX- Twenty-three students, all a part of the College of Bible and Church Ministries at Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU), were recognized for outstanding achievements in their respective areas of study. Each of the students received an award for their dedication and hard work. All recipients were part of the 2022-2023 SAGU senior class.

The College of Bible and Church Ministries at SAGU is dedicated to equipping students in their God-given calling and preparing students to serve the church and community. The college offers four departments – Bible/ Theology, Practical Theology, Behavioral Science and Community Service, and Intercultural Studies. Each department works closely with students to prepare them for ministry in various settings. Faculty members from each department identified this year’s award recipients after careful consideration. 

“As dean of the College of Bible and Church Ministries at SAGU, I am privileged to work with a world-class faculty who lead exceptional students,” says Dr. Clancy Hayes. “Students in our College desire to serve God and their communities through vocational and marketplace ministries. This year we have expanded our academic awards to include those who excel in Bible/Theology; Church Leadership; Intercultural Studies; Behavioral Sciences and Community Services. The faculty select students based on academic merit, personal character, and their potential to change their worlds. I am incredibly proud of this year’s recipients.”

These awards not only acknowledge the hard work put in by each recipient but also inspire other students to strive towards excellence in their studies as well as their faith journey with God. The 23 award winners were honored during a special ceremony on April 6th, 2023, during SAGU’s chapel service.

As a leading Christian university, SAGU educates and prepares individuals who want to serve Christ and others. SAGU helps students discover and develop their God-given callings in a Spirit-empowered, learning community. We believe in affordable tuition, made possible in part through the financial support of donors who embrace the mission of SAGU and the importance of affordable, accredited programs to train Christians for leadership in ministry, business, education, and service. Most majors are available in-person in Waxahachie, TX, and online through a wide range of associate, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees.
