Welcome Class of 2023!

You made it!

This is what you’ve been waiting for! COLLEGE! We’re excited that you’re going to be a part of the Virginia Tech community, we can’t wait for you to find out what it means to be a Hokie and to live out Ut Prosim. We also want to invite you to get involved with our church family while you’re here!

About NLCF

One thing that may strike you first about NLCF is that we’re mostly comprised of college students! That’s right: a church built around YOU! We meet on campus, our schedule reflects the school year, and our desire is to see the Kingdom of God move on campus! We want to love God and love Hokies!

Want to get involved quickly? Check out our events below at the beginning of the school year, in the season we call “Kickoff”. We have a TON of free and fun opportunities to meet new people, make friends, all while eating food and playing games!
