Hall of Witnesses

Hall of Witnesses

A place of honor on the campus of Southern Nazarene University

…to recognize those elders and laity who have invested their lives to Christian service.

…to build endowed resources for educating and supporting future generations of Christian servants.

We invite churches, family members, colleagues and boards to partner with Southern Nazarene University in establishing a place of honor for the great cloud of witnesses, living or deceased, who have carried the light of the Gospel around the world. The names of those honored will be placed in The Hall of Witnesses, located in the S.T. Ludwig Religion building on the campus of Southern Nazarene University. These gifts of honor will support the endowment funding ministerial intern scholarships.
