True North is focused on

helping college students in downtown Grand Rapids connect their Christian faith

with their daily life and career goals


The True North mission is to help students consider God’s possible directions for their lives and recognize their vocations as they face significant life decisions when they graduate.

One way to think about God’s calling for our lives is through the concept of vocation. The Christian experience of vocation begins with our calling to faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. As faith grows and matures, we come to understand how God is working through our distinctive abilities, interests, and life experiences to provide opportunities for serving Christ: through our professions and employment, significant life relationships, stewardship of the creation, neighborhood situations, interactions across cultures, and all other experiences of our lives.

True North encourages college students to consider how they may serve Christ in all areas of their lives.
