The Crusade is North Greenville University's annual revival. Sponsored by the North Greenville Baptist Association and North Greenville University, the university and community join together in an exciting and intense way, worshipping the Lord. It is a great way to start the new academic year and sets the spiritual tone for the semester.
For our incoming Freshmen, the Crusade offers the first real experience of the true nature and purpose of NGU. We hope that whether they are saved or searching, they will let Christ make the difference in their hearts and lives during this time of community worship.
Dates, Places and Times
Crusade begins Sunday, August 14 and continues through August 17th. Gather at Turner Chapel each night. Music begins at 7:00 pm. (Let the Holy Spirit handle when the worship service ends.)
