On October 6-7, 2016, Timothy Lin met with NCF staff as the new Director of Student Ministries. Tim shared his vision for helping nursing students follow Jesus and invite their friends into a deeper relationship with God and each other through NCF community groups. Thank God for Tim and his strategic leadership! Pray for more students to trust God in nursing school this year.

Tressie MyersTrusting an Unchanging God

“How exciting and comforting to know that the Jesus Christ who led in establishing Nurses Christian Fellowship in 1948 hasn’t changed one bit. Nor will He change in the years to come, regardless of how many more years he allows NCF to carry on. . . I pray that every Christian nurse will be keenly alert to the voice of Christ Jesus, and respond totally to Him who is ‘the same yesterday, today, and forever’ (Hebrews 13:8).” –Tressie Myers, NCF Director 1951-1968, excerpt from “The Nurses Lamp” September 1973. Read the full “Dear Girls” letter.
