at NNU

“Justice, Mercy, Humility: Pursuing the Common Good.” It’s the theme chaplains Dustin and Olivia Metcalf selected for NNU’s 2015–2016 chapel services, through which they are encouraging education and conversation in places outside of the classroom.

“We believe that God’s desire is to right the wrongs of this world, and that part of this righting is for God’s people to live holy lives—lives reflecting the image of Christ in the world. To be like Christ, we have to be able to see the ‘least of these’—the abused, the broken, the forgotten.”

Through special speakers, local pastors, members of the campus community and denominational leaders, students are exploring and dialoguing about what it means to be a Christian in our world.
