Connecting People to Christ

Improving and sustaining the heart of the UNL campus

Our Faith

We serve nearly 700 students from a variety of faith backgrounds each year. We understand that for many, this academic season is both challenging and developmental, and our goal is to come alongside to assist and affirm students in their journey.

Our Concern

Our current building has long outlived its usefulness. After 60+ years of constant use we’ve identified major roof leaks, ceiling disintegration, irreparable termite damage as well as a need to update our antiquated and inefficient facilities. 

Our Mission

Our desire is to fully utilize the space we have on UNL’s campus in a way that serves our community. We truly think that building a new facility will allow us to maintain our history and provide exceedingly more ministry opportunities to the student population.
