Pillar College opening campus in Basking Ridge

Pillar College has added a campus in Basking Ridge, it announced earlier this month.

The school, which focuses on underserved communities and has its main campus in Newark, said in a news release that the new site is located on the grounds of the Fellowship Deaconry, 3575 Valley Road.

Classes on the campus will begin in spring 2023.

“We are thrilled to see more students than ever who are eager to improve their lives through higher education taught through a Christ-centered lens, and we are blessed to be able to expand our ability to impact more lives with the opening of our Basking Ridge campus,” Pillar College President Rupert A. Hayles Jr. said in a prepared statement. “We are grateful to Fellowship Deaconry for helping to make this expansion possible through their partnership.”

Offerings at the new campus will include undergraduate programs in biblical studies, psychology and counseling, organizational leadership, elementary education and intercultural communications, as well as a graduate program in counseling and more.

“The Fellowship Deaconry family welcomes Pillar College to our campus,” Pastor Wellesley A. Broomfield, executive director of the deaconry, said in a statement. “We look forward to many years of us partnering to advance the kingdom of God.”
