Campus & Spiritual Life

Spiritual Life


NNU’s close-knit community is rooted in love for one another and love for God.

NNU seeks to create an atmosphere of spiritual life in which students and faculty alike challenge one another to examine, articulate, own and live out their faith in all aspects of their lives. No matter your background or where you are on your faith journey, our desire is to see you explore and deepen your own faith.

This is a place where you can grow in your faith and talk about it. This is a place where you can safely ask tough questions and find honest answers in a community rooted in mutual respect and love. This is a place where you can expect to encounter Jesus as part of your everyday interactions–no matter where you are or what you’re doing.

Spiritual life is who we are

Although there are many intentional opportunities at NNU for you to develop your spiritual life, it is important to know that spiritual life is who we are and in EVERYTHING we do. At NNU we are invested in helping you transform into the person God has created you to be so that you, in turn, can go out and transform the world for good.

Chapel provides an intentional time and space for the NNU community to come together to listen, learn, worship, pray and grow together as we reflect upon how God is working on our campus. Tune into chapel every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning at 10:10 a.m.
