Missions at NCC is about extending the good news of Jesus to others in a way that is meaningful and relevant to their own situation in life. We look for the most effective language available to tell people of God’s love for them in Jesus.

The world’s future leaders are on the campus today. The rest of their lives will be dictated by what they come to believe during this formative time. For more than fifty years, our core competency has been to reach, train, and mobilize leaders for the cause of Christ.
The Campus Ministry is positioned today to be a significant force for change in the lives of students and faculty. 10 million people have had the chance to know God personally this past year. 119,000 people began a relationship with Christ for the first time for a lifetime! We are trusting God for more than 1 million followers of Jesus compelled to bring life to the world by 2020.(Acts 1:8)
