Every year ENC sends out a handful of student-led summer ministry teams to camps and churches on the east coast. This year, three teams are covering ground all the way up to Maine, down to Maryland, and even over to Indiana for the Nazarene General Assembly.

There are two types of students. Those who like chapel and those who don’t. If chapel isn’t your favorite thing, try thinking of it like any other class. You can’t miss too many and you need it to graduate. If anything this is the easiest class because there is no homework and you know there won’t be any pop quizzes! Plus, the speakers are engaging and most of the time they’re even pretty entertaining!
Life is crazy. It’s chaotic and fast-paced and sometimes it feels like there are way more downs than ups. Hard things happen and it’s important for your personal health that you know when to ask for help. It’s not a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of strength! If you’re struggling with something on the list below, or anything else please reach out to a friend and let them know that you need their support.

Here is a powerful Christian call: “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your
