Campus Ministries

“Where you are shapes who you are. Right now. In this moment. The environment that you are in is having an effect on you. You may not realize it. You may not see it. You may not even want it, but you are being shaped. You are becoming where you are, and that is why at Northwest we are all about being a spiritually vibrant community that helps people become better followers of Jesus.”

Christian Dawson, Campus Pastor


Northwest’s Campus Ministries Department exists to cultivate the spiritual vitality of the NU Community and foster the spiritual formation of each member. Campus Ministries accomplishes this by fostering spiritual formation personally, relationally, corporately, and missionally.
