NCU Supports Venture Expeditions Global Project Ride

Date: August 15, 2013 - 9:28am

North Central University's Web coordinator, Mark Erickson, is on the road this week representing NCU with Venture Expeditions on an 8 day/500 mile bike ride from Canada to Iowa. Venture has partnered with River Valley Church (MN) to raise necessary support for Convoy of Hope and the A21 organization.

More than 50 people of all cycling abilities will stop in communities throughout Minnesota to share about the work of Convoy of Hope and A21, encouraging people to pray, give and serve those in need. 


Convoy of Hope is a faith-based organization with a driving passion to feed the world through children's feeding initiatives, community outreaches, disaster response and partner resourcing. A21 is on mission to abolish slavery in the 21st century through prevention, protection, prosecution and partnerships.

Venture Expeditions was founded by North Central University alumni and is a non-profit organization that sponsors biking and hiking trips to raise funds for worthy causes. Over the past 10 years, Venture has sent out dozens of teams, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for projects working to free the world of poverty, slavery and injustice.

North Central University is proud to be a Premier Sponsor of Venture Expeditions through financial support and prayer. NCU is also proud to see so many alumni (and employees!) participating in, and leading this great organization.
