Mission Board Report for August 2020

As we think about school starting again please pray for North Park University and Seminary and Tim Sales with Inter Varsity Christian Fel-lowship.

North Park University’s vision is “Building on our core institutional identity – Christian, City Centered, Intercultural – our vision is to create a university of uncommon character and enduring excellence, where faith, learning and service meet.” One way students can be involved is through the CRUX program. This is an urban discipleship program where students live and learn on campus in a cohort. They will deepen their re-lationship with Christ, increase their understanding of community and engage the city of Chicago.

“North Park Seminary exists to prepare students academically, practically, and spiritually to serve the Evangelical Covenant Church and other Chris-tian bodies, and to minster to both church and world through scholarship, teaching, service and community life.” “North Park Seminary offers 4 traditional degrees, 6 dual-degree combinations with business and non-profit management and 8 graduate certificate programs. They inter weave theology, bible, ministry, spiritual formation and diversity courses into each degree.”

“The purpose of InterVarsity Christian Fellow-ship is to establish and advance at colleges and universities witnessing communities of students and faculty who follow Jesus as Savior and Lord; growing in love for God, God’s word, God’s people of every ethnicity and culture and God’s purpose in the world. They do this by leading students to Jesus, teaching them to respond to God’s word, engage people of all cultures and ethnicities and encourage service to God’s purpose in the world.” Tim Sales leads the chapter at Rock Valley College.
