“MVNU has helped strengthen my convictions and character as well as make me more aware of my weaknesses. It has increased my confidence in any situation because I see myself as a child of God and this place has fostered my development into the man I was made to be.”
Matias Malkamaki, ‘21
“My professors, coaches, friends, teammates, and other amazing mentors have guided and showed me Christ in a new way. They have all strengthened my faith and played a big part in who I am today.”
