Leaders Matter

Leaders developed at Princeton University shape the future of our country by determining what media gets disseminated, what laws get passed, and how major decisions get made. Princeton has produced two U.S. Presidents, three current Supreme Court justices, and countless thinkers, artists, and executives including Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and former First Lady Michelle Obama.

Today, however, we see many examples of failing leadership. We are a country that does not always protect the most vulnerable among us, that worships idols, such as money and fame, and that is focused on secular, earthly goals rather than spiritual and eternal ones. Raising up godly leaders at Princeton is the start of having God at the center of our culture. Christian Union Nova, which ministers to Princeton invites you to become a partner in creating faithful leaders to transform our nation.

Who is shaping tomorrow's leaders?
A handful of universities and cities have an outsized influence on our nation’s culture. Nearly 70 percent of the nation’s most influential leaders come from just one percent of schools. Many of these institutions, including Princeton, were founded on Christian principles. One of Princeton’s founders expressed to another clergyman, “Though our great Intention was to erect a seminary for educating Ministers of the Gospel, yet we hope it will be useful in other learned professions—Ornaments of the State as Well as the Church.”  Today, however, Princeton is decidedly secular and, in many cases, overtly antagonistic to the Christian faith. This rocky ground is where Christian Union Nova sets its stake.

Become a partner in developing and connecting these Christian leaders.

Christian Union Nova believes that widespread proclamation of the Gospel and an outpouring of the Holy Spirit will transform Princeton and as a result, our nation. This new spiritual vitality will be built by students shaped at Princeton. The ministry develops leaders through mentoring and in-depth biblical study that honors the needs of the intellectual, intensely motivated students at Princeton.

Highly-qualified ministry faculty guide students in a deep understanding of their Christian faith. Through Bible courses and discipleship, they learn to seek God’s purpose for their lives and graduate ready to do His work in the world. After graduation, Christian Union continues to nurture Princeton alumni with the faith and power to reshape our institutions through our alumni engagement programs and through CU New York.

Today you can help us make all this possible.
