Northwest Christian University in Eugene has educated and inspired students to pursue Christian ministries and missions and has long been supported by our church. We have encouraged young people to consider attending NCU, and several of the ministers who have served this congregation are NCU alumni (including Pastor Steve and Pastor Dale Moore).
As other colleges have done, NCU has decided it would be beneficial to change their name. Beginning July 1st, the new name will be Bushnell University. New name, same mission. From the website: "The mission of the university remains exactly the same: the pursuit of wisdom, centered on our faith in Jesus Christ, leading to lives of Christian service..."
Why the change? "Changing our name to Bushnell University allows us to reach beyond the Northwest, to students nationally and globally." Why Bushnell? James A. Bushnell was the first President of the Board of Regents, partnering with Eugene Sanderson to found Eugene Divinity School in 1895. He came across the Oregon trail to live in the Willamette Valley, started the first Chamber of Commerce in the area, founded and became president of the first bank in Junction City, built a hotel/opera house, helped to start several churches and funded the pastor's salaries, served on the State Missionary Board, and much more. "James A. Bushnell and his family truly emulate all that we aspire to be missionally as a university."
