Phase one of the campus quadrangle, part of Vision 2025, is in the final stages and took another step forward today as the 7 foot 6 inch, 412 pound Christ sculpture was placed in the center of the quad.

The Danny Edwards Limited Edition solid bronze sculpture is the generous gift of long-term NNU supporters Ralph and Darlys Palmen. The Palmens have each lived lives of great service, modeling Christ in all aspects of their professional and personal lives. It was their wish to partner with NNU in the creation of the sculpture and provide the resources necessary for this dramatic addition to the campus.

The Christ sculpture now stands at the center of campus welcoming each of us as we walk to chapel and serves as a visual reminder to all—guests, students and employees—that Christ is the Center and Foundation of everything we do at NNU.

A dedication ceremony will be held in the fall.
