Hampton, Va., June 06, 2024 – Hampton University proudly announced that its newly launched School of Religion has formed a partnership with the Church of God in Christ Second Jurisdiction of Virginia during the 110th Hampton University Ministers’ Conference (HUMC), marking a new chapter for both the university and the church community. This innovative collaboration will be a vital resource for both the Ministers’ Conference and the broader faith-based community.

“We are thrilled to announce that the Church of God in Christ is our very first partner with the School of Religion,” said Hampton University President Darrell K.

“The collaboration between C.O.G.I.C. and Hampton University’s School of Religion is a remarkable opportunity to enhance spiritual education and leadership,” said Bishop Michael B. Golden, Jr., appointed as one the youngest bishops of C.O.G.I.C. “We are honored to be the inaugural partner in this endeavor, and we look forward to the positive impact this will have on our communities and beyond.”

Rev. Dr. Debra Haggins, founding dean of the School of Religion, executive director and treasurer of the Hampton University Ministers’ Conference, and HU chaplain, shared her excitement about the partnership.

“The School of Religion is a dream realized for Hampton University and the faith community,” said Haggins. “This institution will provide a comprehensive and inclusive platform for theological education, research, and spiritual development. We are excited about our partnership with C.O.G.I.C. and we’re committed to fostering a new generation of leaders who are well-equipped to address the challenges of our time.”

The School of Religion offers a diverse range of programs and initiatives, including:

  • Degree Programs: Undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs in theology, religious studies, and ministry.
  • Continuing Education: Workshops, seminars, and certificate programs for clergy and lay leaders.
  • Research and Publications: A robust agenda of research projects and publications aimed at advancing religious scholarship and practice.
