Dr. Eddie G. Grigg is the founder of Charlotte Christian College and Theological Seminary. Being convinced that God wanted him to start an evangelical school of postsecondary education for the training of ministers to effect the urbanization of God’s Kingdom, and the need to teach God’s Word unapologetically as God-breathed, Dr. Grigg began to seek those that were willing to assist in the fulfilling of this vision.
He approached friends, Dr. Michael B. Steen and Dr. Daniel P. Kirk to join the effort, along with the church he served, New Life Baptist Church, which enthusiastically entered a unique partnership with the embryonic institution and provided it a meeting place for the first six years.
Charlotte Christian College and Theological Seminary is an academic institution that is committed to the global advancement of the gospel of Jesus Christ and His church through the medium of educational training. It is the goal of Charlotte Christian College and Theological Seminary to develop servant leaders with high academic training, interpersonal skills, and moral constitution. It is our desire that each student be sent into the world prepared, trained, and equipped to fulfill the Great Commission.
