Northwest University Summer Journey

Finding Our Place in the Story of God

When our story and God's story collide, we're never the same! That's why the Summer Journey exists; to help High School students develop a greater awareness of their unique, God-given calling by exploring their own story and deepening their understanding of the biblical story. For 9-days students will stay on NU campus, form deep friendships with like-minded peers, enjoy fun activities and outdoor adventure in the greater Seattle area and experience the Bible in new ways with the help of leading pastors and professors.
