christian leaders are boundless

We're connecting students
to influential leaders
(across faiths)

NF is equipping students for boundless Christian leadership by introducing them to influential Muslims in their industry.

 

Beginning in 2021, we are providing select Christian college faculty

1-hour digital "meet, learn, and Q+A" experiences for their students.

Participating students can apply to more experiences to grow their networks and leadership potential. 

students are saying:

"this was amazing! 

I am inspired and challenged to develop genuine relationships with Muslims."

"LOVED this Event!"

"Eye opening!"

"It was fantastic! I am praying that this event becomes an annual thing!"

"NF connected us with a broad network that spoke life into our campus to meet students' needs."

"NF really impacted students and challenged their perspectives."

view & Request
speakers
for:

1. law
2. polisci
+ more TBD

Faq's

HOW DOES THIS WORK?

We keep things simple: speakers join the class on Zoom, greet students, and present for 20-30 minutes on a mutually agreed scholarly or professional topic relevant to the class. Then 30+ minutes for discussion and Q+A. 

Who pays for this?

NF covers all costs. Funding for this program is generously provided by the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations

What is required from me?

Our goal is to inspire as many Christian students as possible for boundless leadership. Due to this we are requesting that entire classes attend the experience.

Have you done this before?

We've run programs at dozens of Christian colleges and all kinds of classrooms. See a full list here. Read about similar events here, here, here and here

Can I bring in more than one speaker? 

Yes. If you have multiple classes we can potentially bring one speaker to each. You are also welcome to combine multiple classes into a single session. 

I have questions...

Please reach out to Kevin Singer with any questions at kevin@neighborlyfaith.org
