Northwest University Summer Journey
Finding Our Place in the Story of God
The Summer Journey exists to help High School students explore the ways their life and story join with God's own. By discovering the ways God has acted in the past, still acts today and will act in the future, students will gain a deeper understanding of the purpose for which they were made.
