“MidAmerica Nazarene University teaches and equips students for engagement in the world--helping students to discover their purpose and be transformed for God's present and future plan through caring faculty and excellence in academics. It is an incredible responsbility and honor to serve God with our whole being--body, mind and soul--as we provide our best efforts for a transformational experience in a Christ-centered community."
