Charlotte Christian College and Theological Seminary seeks to relocate
On June 7, 2017, Board Chairman Dr. Joseph Cody shared the following announcement concerning the institution’s campus. He stated, "The Board of Directors…has determined that our current facilities are not sufficient to achieve our goals. To that end, the Board has voted to put the Whiting Avenue property up for sale as we identify a more efficient, modern campus in Charlotte. This process may take a significant amount of time to complete but we believe we can achieve the desired result to establish in the city of Charlotte a ‘top notch’ Christian Liberal Arts College and Theological Seminary. The Board will make every effort to keep you apprised of its progress during this transition. We ask for your prayers that the Lord will continue to guide us through this challenging assignment."
Founder and President Eddie G. Grigg explained that “the mission of the institution broadened following the Board of Directors retreat in 2014 to include faith integrated non-ministerial degrees that will allow committed Christians to choose from a growing number of professions to better enable Christian men and women to represent Christ throughout the world’s cities.”
The vote was unanimously to sell the campus to allow for continued growth and expansion of the institution. The old buildings, built in 1952 and 1962, are costly to maintain and they were never designed for the needs of modern post-secondary education. Today's students require modern technologies, online and residential courses, and environmentally friendly buildings. Furthermore, the City of Charlotte has restricted attendance at our current location in an effort to control traffic in the NoDa neighborhood surrounding the institution. Therefore, to continue growing and developing, it is essential that the institution be located in a setting where it can thrive, leading the Board of Directors to conclude it is in the best interest of the students and the institution to sell the property and seek a location where the institution can truly flourish.
