Prayer Requests?

Prayer is such an important part of the support that students, staff and faculty of Northrise University need on a daily basis. An ongoing prayer request is that Northrise can continue to be the shining beacon hope of the gospel in Ndola.

But we serve the Lord of victory and we know that nothing can stop His will from being done. Please continue to pray for the protection of the faculty, staff and students.

  • Staff recruitment is an ongoing process – pray that suitable people will join the team in serving the students and carrying forward the vision of empowering the nation Zambia.

Main Campus Project

We have embarked on building the Northrise University main campus on the 640 acres of land given to us by the Zambian government through the Ndola City Council. If you are able to contribute in any way, such as, financially, donation of building materials or equipment, or offering “hands on” help, you are welcome to do so.

Currently we are completing the Campus Center Building as part of the first phase for our $15m capital projects under the 2020 Capital Campaign – Advancing the Vision

Northrise Farms

The Northrise Farm plays a crucial role not only in its use for practical application by students who will study sustainable agriculture skills but as a way of generating revenue for sustaining University operations. A lot is yet to be done and help is very much welcome.

As a steadily growing community, Northrise has several areas that need an extra hand. Please consider volunteering with us; we have many opportunities and several options you can choose both here in Zambia and in the USA. “We believe we are accomplishing much; but with you helping hand, we know we can accomplish so much more today and tomorrow!”

Why would a university in Africa make an impact on individuals, churches, and communities half a world away? The answer is simple: HOPE!! The Northrise story offers hope to more than just the students, their families, and even the country of Zambia; it offers hope for those who want to see God’s love in action. From Australia to the United States, Northrise University has touched the hearts of thousands of people, bringing people together with one question in mind; “What can I do?”. Resoundingly we say, “You can Serve!”.

Impact Ndola Ministry

The big picture for the Impact Ndola ministry is to have as many people as are touched by the Lord from all over the world, to come and minister to the community of Ndola together with the Northrise University students, staff and faculty and impact the city in a positive way.

We hope that the Northrise story – its efforts, its strides, its impact, its excellence, its mission and its vision – will not end with you. But through you, we wish to share this story to as many people as possible including those that just need to hear a faith story to stay encouraged, those that need a Christ-centered education, those that are looking to invest in the kingdom of God and those that are willing to stand in the gap. Its ordinary students that are being transformed into extraordinary graduates… Ordinary lives are being changed and you can be part of the process.
