Christian Dawson is this year’s Worship Director for NUMA. A double-major in Pastoral Ministries and Biblical Studies, Christian spent his summer touring with Crossing, Northwest’s summer ministry team.
Dawson said that in regards to his vision this year for campus ministries, he’s grateful for last year’s team who “created a foundation for so many possibilities in the future.” Regarding what’s coming this year, he said that NU students can expect to see events like the Pursuit Conference again, Christmas and Easter chapels, serve days, and a plethora of other opportunities to get involved in service and worship.
Dawson also shared his hopes for this school year: “NUMA exists to see the community of NU spiritually develop. The beautiful thing about our school is the differences in spiritual upbringing, denominations, and ideals. My heart is to see our community share, celebrate, and learn from our differences. I pray that we would be open to see Christ through others’ eyes as well as show him from our own. I hope to see a vulnerability, openness, and grace that will be reviving for us.”
Luke Hicks, also a part of Crossing, has this to say of working with Dawson: “Christian is a strong leader. He is considerate of others and loves to see people grow. He is a great planner and always thinks of what is next. He is a lot of fun to be around and is always encouraging.”
