Faith at North Park

North Park is the University of the Evangelical Covenant Church. Founded in 1891 by Swedish Christian immigrants, it continues to embody Covenant values and affirmations. Accordingly, we foster respectful discussion and engagement among people of all beliefs.

Here, students encounter different Christian traditions and study in a diverse environment. At North Park University, all students are welcome, regardless of their faith convictions. Because we learn more together than we do apart.
