FaithWalk University (FWU) was founded in August 2019 in Chesterfield, VA under the leadership of Founder and President, Dr. Andrea Leslie. 


FWU trains and equips 5-fold ministry leaders and those called into Apostolic/Prophetic office for works of service according to Ephesians 4:11 and 1 Corinthians 12:28. FWU also partners with Kairos INT to offer a variety of discipleship classes geared towards an individual's spiritual growth and development.

FWU serves as the official educational and ministerial institution for Antioch Christian Worship Center and the GROW Network.

FaithWalk University is a religious institution exempt from state regulation and oversight in the Commonwealth of Virginia, however, it is a recognized religious institution within the state of Virginia in accordance with state regulations (SCHEV).


We offer five major programs of study from Bachelor to Doctorate level as well as several certificate programs.  Most classes are digitally, with a few in-person classes.  FWU is focused on equipping students around the world, who are obeying the great commission to go therefore and make disciples of all nations.

At FWU we believe education begins with a stated purpose and desire, which turns into opportunities which leads to fulfillment. Our educators are there to help make the journey a little easier. They assist with helping students chart a course that will lead them to their desired end.

Our goal and mission - to make disciples who will make disciples. Therefore, the programs of study and courses that we offer are designed to equip our students with the necessary tools they need in order to carry out the great commission.  FWU equips 5-fold ministry community leaders and prepares those called to walk in the office of Apostle, Prophet, and Teacher to be sent out to fulfill their assignment.
