Celebrate 2019!

In this season, we're celebrating the many ways God has blessed Northwestern College in 2019. We invited givers making year-end donations to do so in honor of something they're celebrating—like a marriage, birth/adoption, personal or professional achievement, or other demonstration of God's faithfulness. Below are the messages they shared.
