Whitworth University Church Relations

Church Relations

Whitworth has maintained a covenant relationship with the Presbyterian church for every one of the university's 120-plus years. Among Presbyterian CCCU schools, Whitworth is the largest and highest-ranked by U.S. News & World Report and is the only such institution west of the Rocky Mountains.

Affirming and drawing strength from its Presbyterian tradition, Whitworth has prepared generations of graduates who serve the Presbyterian church and other Christian ministries and who embody the university's founding mission to "honor God, follow Christ and serve humanity." We invite your church to join us in carrying out Whitworth University's mission and vision.

Church Partners

Whitworth has always drawn strength and inspiration from its Reformed roots and from its covenant relationship with the Presbyterian church. Presbyterian congregations continue to be a key source of referrals for prospective students, and their pastors provide vital leadership on Whitworth's board of trustees and in other advisory roles. Both Presbyterian and non-Presbyterian congregations are also instrumental in supporting Whitworth financially and in providing opportunities for current students and alumni. These financial gifts to The Whitworth Fund and other areas support the faculty, campus facilities and financial aid that are so critical to the university's academic excellence and  to keeping a Whitworth education within reach of deserving students. We invite your church to support Whitworth University in its mission of educating the minds and hearts of tomorrow's leaders.
