What is the NEXUS Institute?

The NEXUS Institute is a free, week-long, on-campus institute that brings together high school students from around the country to dig deep into theology with Christian professors and speakers. This institute, which students must fill out an application to attend, helps students think theologically, live in Christian community with our college mentors, and consider their call in ministry. This year’s theme is…


We want to bring up future Christian leaders who understand the radical hope the Gospel brings. We will dive deep into the Old and New Testaments to see how hope is woven throughout the Bible, and we will learn how to let the hope of Christ run our lives as opposed to fear!

How much does NEXUS cost?

FREE! NEXUS is part of the High School Youth Theological Institutes and is made possible through a generous grant from the Lilly Foundation and supportive churches. The only cost to you is the cost of transportation to and from Des Moines at the beginning and end of the week (should a student need financial assistance for travel costs, please contact us ASAP).
