President's Honors is a donor recognition and fundraising event. But it is also more than that: it is a celebration˜of God's faithfulness, of donor generosity, of all that makes the mission of MidAmerica Nazarene University worthy of unwavering, sacrificial support.
The sixth annual President's Honors is scheduled for Friday, April 12, 2019.
At the 2019 President’s Honors, we will be honoring Allen and Madeline Tollefson with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
