Alumni Wall of Missions

For many decades, NNU alumni have taken Jesus' command seriously: their record of service around the world is a testimony to their faithfulness as they have left the comfort of cultural familiarity and taken the gospel where God has led them. NNU recognizes those alumni who have committed to at least one continuous year of their lives in ministry for Christ to people in cross-cultural settings by including their names on our Honor Wall of Missions in the Brandt Center on campus.
