nebraska christian college is moving forward!
The past two years of talking, planning, dreaming, and hard work by the Nebraska Christian College team has led us to this point.
I hope you get a sense of how Nebraska Christian’s leadership and trustees have sought the Lord’s leading, as I have. We have prayed. We have patiently done the homework, laid plans, and been double-checked with our accrediting bodies. We know that to go forward together without a plan would be foolish. I can confidently say that we are ready, and I am excited to introduce Dr. John Derry as the new President of Nebraska Christian College.
I look forward to this summer when you will have the opportunity to meet Dr. Derry in person. Please mark your calendars for one of the many gatherings we have planned for the Forward Campaign this summer.
I also ask for your partnership. We can only move forward together. Maybe, you have never given to the school...now would be a great time to invest. Maybe, you were a donor in the past...now would be an excellent time to come back. A great way to do that is to give electronically on May 25 to Omaha Gives! Whichever method you use, I pray that you invest in the students of Nebraska Christian College. Every dollar raised during the Forward Campaign will go to underwrite scholarships and the subsidy that our donors have faithfully provided throughout our 71-year history.
Some look at our world and see problems. I look at our world and know that we need to be about our mission of creating church leaders like never before. I am confident in our place and time in history we will do just that. Those that have loved Nebraska Christian College and have invested deeply in its mission, have given us a rich heritage on which we can build an exciting future.
Yes, this is hard work. I learned what work was growing up right here in the Midwest. When I think of those days I am reminded that accomplishing anything great is going to be difficult, but isn’t it worth it? I believe it is, and I know you do as well.
These are historic days for our college.
