Churches and individuals on the MNU educational zone will establish what will become an annual effort starting this October with Pioneering the Future. Pioneering the Future is an initiative among Nazarene churches and individual donors to establish student scholarship endowments for each district on MNU’s educational region. The goal is to ensure MNU remains affordable for Nazarene students from the Iowa, Joplin, Kansas, Kansas City, Missouri, Nebraska and Prairie Lakes Districts for years to come.

Individual donors may make campaign commitments at any point throughout the year.  However, the campaign culminates with a local church offering during the month of October annually to fund scholarship endowments in each district.

This initiative provides a tangible way for individual donors and Nazarene congregations from across the region to jointly and simultaneously pull together by providing an extra measure of support for MNU and our students.
