College Hill Baptist Church and Jackson State University have a connection which began in 1907 when the late Dr. B. Baldwin Dansby, president of then Jackson College, deeded a tract of land just west of the campus to build College Hill Baptist Church.

On Sunday, Oct. 28 College Hill celebrated its second annual ‘College Hill JSU Day’ during the 11 a.m. service. The sanctuary was filled to capacity with an audience comprised of JSU students, faculty members and College Hill Church congregations.

JSU’s University Concert Chorale, under the direction of W. Cortez Castilla, provided music.
