Ministry Groups

Covenant & Witness

NNU’s ministry groups Covenant and Witness are dedicated, talented college students who travel the Northwest simply to share their love of Christ and NNU. Each summer they visit churches, youth groups and summer camps to serve, love others and share their unique gifts and personal stories of transformation.

Meet Covenant

With sincere hearts for God and serious talent in music, Covenant—one of NNU's summer ministry teams—travels the Pacific Northwest leading worship at churches and camps. This group of eight students supports churches by guiding worship services, holding concerts and hanging out with youth groups. They also serve camps as cabin leaders while sharing their gifts in music to enhance the camp experience. Covenant is a hardworking passionate group of Christ followers.

Meet Witness

Witness is a service-focused ministry team that spends most of its time getting dirty and working in the trenches of camps. You’ll see these six students serving as cabin leaders, working alongside churches in service projects, or sometimes filling water balloons for an epic water war. They are creative, fun, energetic and up for a challenge. They aren’t just fun and games though. These students have a heart for Christ and youth. As they journey with Junior High and High School students leading cabin devotionals or sharing their testimonies, they impact others and are impacted themselves.
