We are so glad you are here! Whether you are new to Blacksburg, or you have been in the New River Valley for years, welcome. Through our missional communities (called Engage Groups), prayer times, Sunday gatherings, worship, and more, we are confident and expectant of the Lord moving in our midst. Looking for a church on Sundays? We have multiple services each week; some on campus, some off. We know you will find a home here. Take a step and get connected!

One Church, Two Congregations

As NLCF, we are one church with two congregations. “Collegiate” is our congregation focused on college students at Virginia Tech, but anyone is welcome to hop in! “Generations” is our community congregation where you’ll find anyone from babies to retirees. Anyone is welcome at either congregation, and we partner together throughout the year for various events and activities!
