Campbell Divinity Alumni Day and Cogdill Retirement Celebration

March 26 @ 10:40 am - 1:00 pm

We hope you will be able to join us as we celebrate the service and leadership of Dr. Michael G. Cogdill! After thirty-six years of service to Campbell University and twenty-four years of leadership to Campbell Divinity School as founding dean and professor, Dr. Cogdill is retiring at the end of this academic year. His legacy is firmly established in the solid foundation of the Divinity School, in its heart for the church, its rich community of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and supporters, and in the holistic quality of ministry preparation that he envisioned and brought to life.

Long before Campbell University Divinity School was a highly esteemed school providing 721 graduates with a Christ-centered, Bible-based, and ministry-focused theological education, it was a dream in the heart of Dr. Cogdill. He dreamed of a school where head and heart, thought and action, prayer and work joined together to form ministers with a love for God and a love for God’s people. With the mind of a dean and the heart of a pastor, Dr. Cogdill nurtured this dream from a blank piece of paper into a school that lives out his conviction that “It is worth a life to be a Christian minister!”


10:40 a.m. Chapel Service – Rev. Will Watson (2007) will be the guest speaker.

11:30 a.m. Lunch in the Academic Circle (Guests must register to attend the lunch.)

Guests should follow the “Divinity School Event” parking signs that will direct you to Gore Arena for parking. Golf cart drivers will be available to assist guests with rides from the arena to Butler Chapel.

Room 118 in Taylor Hall will be open throughout the day for alumni to gather and have conversations with one another or our current students.

Please contact Dr. Lynn Brinkley at or (910) 814-4379 to register for the lunch or for more information about Alumni Day and Cogdill Retirement Celebration.
