What does it mean to be “Courageous in the ways of the Lord”? How does this look in your studies? Your friendships? Your future?

The upcoming Nexus 2019 conference will look at courage in all of these areas, focusing on vocation. Learn to lead in your networks as you serve others like Christ. You will connect with industry professionals and learn from their experience in your field of study.

Come and build relationships with like-minded Christians, gain a vision for transforming your campus, and look ahead to how God is equipping you now to be a part of His transforming work in your profession, relationships and beyond.

Throughout the weekend, you will be inspired and equipped in how to be courageous in the ways of the Lord.

Students will expand their knowledge with the guidance of Christian leaders, who will encourage them to consider issues in light of God’s Word. Students can ask questions and dig deeper in these interactive sessions. Students will engage in topics such as leadership, evangelism, revival, sexuality, and the supernatural with subject-matter experts and leading Christian thinkers.

Vocational Panels

Glean insights from experienced professionals in industries including: The Academy, Applied Sciences, Business Ventures, Law & Government, Non-Profit Engagement, and Communications & Media.


As we draw near to God, He promises to draw near to us. Prayer is the means by which we receive from God and are empowered to intercede on behalf of others. At Nexus, students participate in life-changing and powerful times of prayer, not only in plenary sessions, but also in the 24-hour prayer room. Students pray with fellow students from across campuses as you seek His face and His will.

Fellowship and Networking

Being courageous in the ways of the Lord does not mean working alone, but instead by building groups, networks, and bodies of believers gathering together for fellowship, breaking bread and prayer. As a network, Christians can amplify the power for cultural change.  At Nexus there will be opportunities to meet and spend time with fellow believers from across nine campuses and go deep in prayer and relationships. Through small groups you will forge new friendships that will last beyond the conference and (with God’s help) in years to come.


God’s Word is living and active. Students were inspired by fellow students, who memorized and performed spoken word pieces taken directly from Scripture. A time of joy and celebration, SpokenWord is one of the unique highlights of the Nexus Conference. Click here to watch past performances.
