What is Nexus?

Nexus: The Christian Union Conference on Faith and Action 2019 gathers together undergraduates from select universities for a weekend of inspiring speakers, thought-provoking discussions, in-depth seminars, and powerful worship.

The word Nexus means both “the central and most important point or focus” and “a connection.”

The Nexus Conference fulfills this definition in two distinct ways.

First, Nexus will point you to what (or who) is truly most important, namely, Jesus Christ. Nexus will inspire you to live a life rooted in Christ and lived out for His glory. Faith leading to, and expressed in, action.

Secondly, by providing opportunities for student-to-student connections and fellowship opportunities, Nexus develops a network (or nexus) of wholehearted, Christian leaders poised to impact the world.

Students from Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Penn, Princeton, Stanford and Yale are invited to attend.
