NGU Campus Band
The NGU Campus Band was formed in the Spring of 2011. The band was founded for the purpose of leading worship through music in chapel once a week and to lead worship for students off campus in a variety of settings. This band will share the best of praise and worship music with excellence to the glory of God. This year's NGU Campus Band include's vocalists, acoustic and electric guitars, bass, drums, keys, and an audio technician. These eight students were selected on the basis of their personal walk with the Lord, musicianship, and their heart for worship.
Members of NGU Campus Band receive significant scholarships. The amount of the scholarships varies based on commitment and contribution to the ministry, years of service, and an attitude of Christian service.
