University Ministries remains active during Covid-19 with some modifications focused on maintaining the health and safety of the North Park community, our neighborhood, city, and partner organizations. Please check with specific University Ministry programs on how to get involved at this time.
We worship together weekly in Christ-centered, Spirit-filled, dynamic, and diverse gatherings where we learn to love God, one another, and the world around us.
We grow best in community, and at NPU there are ample opportunities to grow together in Christ and his Kingdom where students support, encourage, and challenge one another to become more like Christ and pursue his vocation for their lives.
We pursue a commitment to love, mercy and justice by providing numerous opportunities for students to put their faith into action by serving together locally, nationally, and globally.
Virtual Devotionals and Online Community
University Ministries has wrapped up daily devotionals for the summer, but we urge you to continue the daily disciplines of prayer and meditating on Scripture. We look forward to seeing you in the fall as we anticipate what God is going to do. And we hold each one of you in our prayers. May “the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding … guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Phil.4:7)
Sankofa is a journey toward racial justice and reconciliation. Each February, University Ministries takes a group of students and faculty to places like Birmingham, Alabama and Memphis, Tennessee in order to encounter our country’s past and present realities, have courageous conversations, and seek God’s Kingdom in more of its fullness.
Zambia Global Partnership
North Park Global Partnerships has partnered with Spark Ventures and Hope School and Orphanage for over 10 years to provide medical and educational services in N’Dola Zambia! We send a team of nursing and non-nursing students to run a medical clinic and to play, read with, and teach the students at Hope school and iDream each May!
The NPU Gospel Choir performs contemporary sacred music from the spiritual and gospel genres and is open to all singers, no matter your major, without an audition. A select ensemble of singers, drawn from the choir by audition, serves as a touring ensemble for the group.
