WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Nebraska Christian didn’t just give me knowledge, they gave me tools, experience, and the network necessary to succeed and make an impact in the ministry world. Leaving NC, I felt equipped as a pastor and a follower of Jesus. They give you the opportunity to experience ministry that can’t happen in a classroom.
