Dear Friends of Northwest University,
On Friday, February 22, 2019, we hosted our annual President's Banquet. While this event is categorized as a fundraiser, it usually feels more like a night of worship. That was especially true of this year's banquet. I have heard so many people talk about how touched they were by God's presence at the event, and how moved they were by Farangis and Bailey, our students who shared their testimonies. Not everyone has the dramatic conversion and call story that Bailey has; not everyone comes to us miraculously from the other side of the world as Farangis did. But their stories of faith, provision, and vision for the future fit into a template that is gloriously common among us. The details are interchangeable, but the framework they fit into bears a consistent likeness to the Cross—where Heaven intersects with Earth and makes everything different from that point on. Jesus has such a powerful future ahead for our students!
I'm still reeling from the response. Several large gifts came in during the days after the event, with pledges and gifts totaling $792,000! That's more than $40,000 over our goal of $750,000.
I wanted to send you this exciting announcement to make sure you were included in the joy and celebration of what's happening at Northwest University. We are so excited for the future and so grateful for our Northwest community, and that includes you! Your friendship is truly precious to us.
Thank you for your prayers and support. In the meantime, please watch the highlight video below, and for those who did not get an opportunity to give, it's not too late.
Joseph Castleberry, Ed.D.
President, Northwest University
