Each Fall semester, the Institute for Global Leadership hosts a three-day Global Impact Conference on the main Tigerville campus. Scores of representatives from many evangelical service/ministry agencies and organizations will be on campus to interact with the NGU community and share ways that globally-focused students can partner with them to impact the nations. A “Global Village”, a variety of large and small group meetings, special seminars, classroom speakers, and a Monday evening Coffee House with our conference participants will make this an exciting, informational, and inspirational week on our campus.


CONFERENCE DATES FOR 2019: September 9-11




NGU alumnus Nate Bramsen was born and raised in Senegal, West Africa, where his parents served as missionaries for twenty-five years. In December of 2006, Nathan founded ROCK International (an acronym for Relief, Opportunity, and Care for Kids) and presently serves as its Executive Director. Nate has spent his adult life investing in the neglected and abandoned children of the world who are trapped in the middle of war, disaster, abuse, and crisis situations. ROCK International seeks to bridge the gap between hardship and hope in the lives of these children—in the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual spheres. Nate is married to Priyanka, and they have one daughter, Haven Rahab.  Recently, Nate’s first book was published—What If Jesus Meant What He Said? This book reflects Nate’s passion and heart to see today's youth be unconditional followers of Jesus Christ.
