University/Polytechnic

Student Ministry has a strategically important role in helping us accomplish the mission of the CNBC.  Through student ministry we are discovering, developing and deploying young leaders to serve in all aspects of church ministry.  The purpose of University Ministry is:

  • To lead university and college students and others in the academic community to faith in Jesus Christ
  • To develop them to be disciple makers and leaders
  • To connect them to the life and mission of the church
