We are a Christian college group made up of many religious backgrounds. Our students are from the campuses in and around Lincoln (UNL, NWU, SCC, Doane, Concordia). We desire to know the Father, Son, Spirit God and share Him with others. We recognize the values of acceptance, encouragement and love for unity and spiritual growth. We meet together for friendship, fun, Bible study, spiritual growth, worship, celebration and serving others. We are a registered campus ministry at UNL and also a part of the larger family of Lincoln Berean Church. Our college family meets year round and enjoys the support of a strong, loving church.
