In 2006, Nebraska Christian College strategically relocated its campus to southwest

Omaha. Though still in Nebraska, our eyes are reaching much farther these days,

sending more church leaders than we ever have to the ends of the earth.

2012 GRADUATE AND WORSHIP LEADER AT CALVARY CHRISTIAN CHURCH

Because of Nebraska Christian College’s impact, there are

Senior Pastors, Worship Leaders, Student Pastors, Missionaries and

Church Leaders of every kind doing His work throughout

the Great Plains - reaching from Colorado Springs to Louisville,

from New Hampshire to Nepal. On any given weekend there are over

37,000 people being served

the

need

continues

The impact of church on the U.S. continues to decline. Fewer

millennials are interested in Christianity, Jesus, and church than

any other generation in our history. The last birth year of the

millennials was 1996. Who will reach the millennials and the

generations after millennials? Who will train church leaders to

lead these people back to Christ, back to discipleship, and

back to church?

PROFESSOR DAVID HAYNES AND JOEY NORTON

2012 GRADUATE SERVING IN LITTLE SIOUX, IOWA

“Degree completion alone will not stem the tide of this societal secularization. We need

a new group of church leaders, trained by the brightest academic minds and by the best

practitioners, who will see the harvest and have compassion on this generation.

Everything rises and falls on leadership, and this is our day to create a legacy that will

never be forgotten.”

come to

nebraska

christian

college

You’ll be

surprised

that some of the best practitioners and theorists are teaching in a small

incubator where church leaders are being molded, shaped, and grown. You’ll learn history,

language, context, theology, and doctrine.

You will be in communities with ministry professionals from the

fastest growing

church-es,

as well as with dynamic leaders from small towns that are reaching people and changing

their communities.

We are a school that wants to place 2,500 church leaders in

25% of america’s growing

churches

over the next two decades, and we have a plan to do just that. We believe you

could be one of them. You can make an impact on the world for eternity. Nebraska Christian

College will equip you better than other options for Church Leadership.

The trendline of Christianity in America is not good. There must be a

new wave of

leader-ship

that is inspired, challenged, and readied to lead in creative and changing ways to meet

the challenges that the local church is facing.

It is true that we need Christian leaders in fields like business, medicine, politics, and law - but

it is even more true that we need a new wave of leaders for the future church.

nebraska

Christian College is the place creating those church leaders.
