Dear Northrise Friends,

Thank you for continuing to support Northrise University through your prayers, talents, gifts and financial support.  I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of such a unique family on this incredible journey.  Here is an update to share with you:

  • The new ONE STUDENT Scholarship program was launched last week. Please share it with your family, friends and associates.  Our goal is 100 new full scholarships in 2015.
  • Steven Sikobela and Lusuntha Ngulube, key staff leaders from Northrise, visited and shared with their counterparts at Baylor from April 8th through April 23rd. Steven and Lusuntha also attended the Orange County Dinner/Auction and shared their stories.
  • Moffat and Doreen arrived safely back home last week after spending two weeks in the U.S. visiting and introducing new friends to Northrise.
  • The Bachelor of Nursing program was introduced in March in partnership with First Quantum Mines.
  • Canyon Institute Arizona provided a significant grant to help expand Northrise Farms.
