“I don’t think there is a preacher who has ever passed through South Carolina in 85 who has not been touched by Dr Brashier,” said Dr Mike Hamlet, chairman of the board of directors of NGU and pastor of the First Baptist Church of North Spartanburg. “He was truly a legend as a pastor, preacher, evangelist, as someone who in terms of philanthropy made a difference. I think it’s so fitting. This hall is at the center of this campus, and influence is in all directions.
The ceremony, held on May 20, brought together members of the NGU Board of Directors as well as T. Walter’s Brashier widow, Christine Brashier and several family members, including two of their children, the Reverend Tommy Brashier and Kathy Brashier Higgins.
