NCU 2023: A Year of Celebration and Transformation

As we bid farewell to an extraordinary year, filled with joy, challenges, and triumph, let’s take a moment to reflect on the memorable moments that defined NCU’s journey in 2023.


Partners for Progress Gala at NCU

In October, we marked a significant milestone with the Partners for Progress fundraising Gala. This annual event brought our community together to celebrate the impactful work facilitated by the NCU family. Notably, this year’s gala was hosted on campus for the first time, fostering a sense of unity and generosity. Together, we raised an astounding $640,000, all dedicated to providing scholarships for NCU students.


NCU Block Party

Welcoming each new incoming class is a cherished tradition at NCU, and this year was no exception. Our annual block party, complete with games, food, music, and community building, set the stage for another amazing year ahead.

Worship Live

Our talented students continued the tradition of creating three beautiful singles that resonated with audiences worldwide. Songs like “Thank You,” “Breathe In,” and “Restoring” served as a reminder that worshiping our Almighty God knows no boundaries—anytime, anywhere.
