We are so glad you’re here! Definitely check out the form below to let us know how best to serve and connect with you. Stay tuned to our social media pages over the summer to learn more about upcoming events for new students!

About Us

We are one church with two congregations; focused on engaging our faith in Jesus, enjoying community together, and being a blessing to those around us.

Collegiate

Our congregation focuses on college students, but is open and welcome to anyone! Our rhythms follow the Virginia Tech calendar and is a great place to learn how to follow Christ as a college student.

Generations

Our congregation has a heart for families, kids, and young professionals in Blacksburg and the New River Valley. We focus on the community, and welcome students as well!

Worship

We value worshipping together on Sundays! From mid-August to mid-May, Collegiate meets at 11a on campus and Generations meets at 9:30a at our building, 1521.

Community

We live out our faith together! Both Collegiate and Generations have opportunities for growing closer to God with other believers. It’s in these groups that we find growth, challenge, encouragement, and accountability happen frequently!

Connect

Kickoff 2022

Below we have our larger gatherings listed, but in-between all these things, we will be having smaller gatherings and get-togethers on and off-campus! These are great chances to get to know a smaller crew of people, often clustered in our “NLCF Families”. To find out more about our Families, click here, and if you want to hop in with some of these smaller gatherings, let us know! (Email [email protected])
