Church Relations

Church Relations

Lindsey Wilson College embraces the challenge to equip the next generation of Christian leaders. We intentionally partner and collaborate with churches "to make disciples for the transformation of the world."

Our approach to working with churches resonates from 2 Peter 3:18: "Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." At Lindsey Wilson, we celebrate sharing the task of helping students grow in grace as well as knowledge.

As a church-related college, we encourage your congregation to be a college-related church! Contact our director of church relations, Dr. Gerald Chafin, to discuss how your church can partner with Lindsey Wilson. Call 270-384-8400 or email

Dr. Chafin welcomes the opportunity to visit your church. In addition to speaking for a worship service or with committees of the church, he offers engaging seminars for various groups within your congregation.

Consider hosting:
Influence as Leadership
The Arts in Worship

In addition to his work in Church Relations, Dr. Chafin also serves as the Director of Choral Ensembles at LWC. The Lindsey Wilson College Singers tour extensively and have represented Kentucky in performances nationally and internationally. This distinguished choral ensemble has now performed in 40 states and 7 countries. Also, in 2002, 2006, 2009, and 2018 members of the ensemble participated in performances at Carnegie Hall. In 2014, the Lindsey Wilson College Singers created the United Methodist Youth Chorale, providing high school youth the opportunity to rehearse and perform a concert with us. We have enjoyed meeting and working with students from across the state.
