When we examine the life of Jesus, we see that he cared immensely about developing people. Our Savior was deeply committed to ensuring that those around him had what they needed to walk fully in their calling. Through Jesus’ relationship with his disciples, we come to know him as an influencer, teacher, mentor, and servant. These leadership characteristics enabled him to lead and develop future leaders with the capacity to advance the Kingdom of Heaven.

On March 15, 2018, the 11th Faith in Humanities Conference enriched the Northwest University community with powerful presentations, intriguing ideas, and superb speakers.

Take a look at the stories below and the message from our campus pastor, Christian Dawson, for a glimpse into how students grow in their faith at NU.
Impactful, engaging, phenomenal, powerful, unreal—These are just a few of the words NU students used to describe this year’s Pursuit Conference. Our campus has been buzzing about what is becoming one of the leading spiritual formation conferences in the Pacific Northwest. During the last weekend in January, more than 600 people filled Butterfield Chapel for Pursuit Conference. Here, students and guests engaged in worship, heard from world-class speakers, and encountered God’s presence in refreshing ways.
I, like most students entering college, dreamt of the day I would leave Northwest University: the day I would walk across that stage and receive my diploma for the degree I worked so hard for. Unfortunately, I left NU two separate times before that happened. The first time was the most embarrassing. I had had some wild and crazy notion that I could succeed at school without attending my classes on a regular basis.
