Leadership development

If you’re a leader—or want to become one—step up. At Northwestern, we care about the next generation’s leaders. If you’re going to be one, we want to make sure you become not only more intelligent, but also more compassionate. That’s why we’ll walk alongside you and mentor you every step of the way. We’ll also give you plenty of opportunities for practical experience:

Campus Ministry team

Under the guidance and training of our professional campus ministry staff, 30 student leaders oversee the members and activities of our ministry teams.

Discipleship Group leaders

50 students facilitate weekly small group gatherings of their peers in student rooms and apartments. After receiving training, D-Group leaders lead Bible studies and prayer and encourage spiritual growth among group members.

Portage leaders

Portage is a pre-Orientation trip for freshmen to Minnesota’s Boundary Waters. The trip is led by an experienced wilderness instructor and 5 upperclassman leaders.

Spring Service Project leaders

Every spring break, 12 to 15 teams of students serve at ministry sites around the world. Each team is led by a Northwestern faculty or staff member and student leaders who recruit team members, oversee fund-raising efforts, and plan and execute trip details.
