CBF of North Carolina is proud to announce that Reverend Adrian Bullock has been hired as the Triangle area campus minister. Encompassing NC State, Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill, Adrian will manage the existing Cooperative Baptist Student Fellowship (CBSF) ministries, as well as cultivate new discipleship and leadership opportunities for undergraduate students. With support from two interns, student leaders and local partner churches, Adrian will lead the Triangle area CBSF ministry around the values of community, mission focus, collaboration, leadership, flexibility and spiritual formation.
“I am excited, humbled and a bit nervous as I take on the role as Triangle Campus Minister for the CBFNC. The campuses I have served in the interim role and now in the full-time position have a long history of being an open door to students while standing on the Baptist heritage,” said Adrian. “As we approach the 2022-23 school year in which COVID-19, social unrest and political divisions are still at the forefront of the minds of all people, I believe we have the chance to reach and connect with others like never before. This is our opportunity, as campus ministry is forced to refocus on what has been done well, what can be done better and what type of impact we will have on this generation of God’s people.”
Adrian is a graduate of North Carolina Central University and Campbell University Divinity School. He currently serves as the associate campus minister at NC Central and as the interim campus minister for CBFNC at Duke and Carolina. Adrian first connected with CBFNC in 2019 while in divinity school when he served as an intern with Rev. Michael Page at NC Central.
Stretching back to the inception of CBFNC, our fellowship has a rich history of collegiate ministry. With a presence on over 20 campuses across North Carolina, Adrian joins the vibrant campus ministry team of Tierney Boss (Appalachian State), Chris Cherry (UNCG), Caitie Jackson (Charlotte area), Charity Roberson (ECU), David Stone (Western, Mars Hill & UNCA) and Chris Towels (Wake Forest), along with CBFNC’s partner schools (Campbell University, Chowan University, Gardner-Webb University, Meredith College and Wingate University).
“We are excited to have Adrian taking his role in campus ministry with CBFNC to the next level. He showed initiative as an intern by pioneering the “Growing Stronger” program connecting our CBSF-affiliated campus ministries together in pursuit of understanding race and the Christian calling. We are thankful for his willingness to expand ministry and outreach to college students in this new role,” noted David Stone, CBFNC Campus Ministries director.
“After 30+ months of this pandemic experience, the CBSF leadership is focused on enhancing existing approaches and developing new ones for campus life. Our goal is to equip students for leadership, embrace our campus neighbors through missions and justice ministries, and engage new students with the love of Jesus.,” said Andy Hale, CBFNC associate executive coordinator.
