christian leaders are boundless

We're connecting students
to influential leaders
across faiths

NF is equipping students for boundless Christian leadership in the 21st centry by introducing them to influential Muslims in their industry.

 

Since 2020, we've provided select Christian college faculty

1-hour virtual "meet, learn, and Q+A" experiences for their classes.

Students will meet influential industry leaders and learn more about leading across faiths in their future study, careers, and calling. 

students are saying:

"this was amazing! 

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

"LOVED this Event!"

"Eye opening!"

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

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

"NF really impacted students and challenged their perspectives."

Faq's

HOW DOES THIS WORK?

We keep things simple: speakers join the class on Zoom, greet students, and present for 20 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?

A devoted section of class time and some background on what students might be interested in learning. We take care of the rest!

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 may be able to bring a speaker to each. We also encourage combining multiple classes into a single session.
