Elon Community Church and Pastor Randy Orwig: Elon

2023 NC Main Street Champion

The Elon Community Church and Pastor Randy Orwig, embody what the word champion means to Elon. Since 2021 Randy has been an Elon Town Council member and serves on the town’s Sustainability and Personnel Committees. Randy has fostered a partnership between the Elon Community Church, Town of Elon, and Elon University to support many events, initiatives, and community projects. Along with the church, Randy has been a community advocate providing facilities for meetings. This partnership has allowed the Town of Elon to use the church parking lot and grass area for several downtown events.

This past year, the Farmer’s Market, a staple in downtown, was at risk of being eliminated. Randy immediately partnered with the town to keep this program afloat by offering his time, facility, and resources to continue and grow this popular downtown program. Elon Community Church has also allowed public art on its front lawn in the core of downtown, and creation of a sidewalk and extension of the Town’s Social District onto its property.

Elon is thrilled to honor Elon Community Church and Randy Orwig as deserving recipients of its 2023 NC Main Street Champion award.
