College Students

We love encouraging and welcoming college students from around the New River Valley. Virginia Tech, Radford University and New River Valley Community College are all represented.


Our goal is that every student in the college ministry is an active part of the church  and is equipped to be the church, understanding what that means, both now and post-graduation.
  • Small groups
  • Fun activities and events
  • Discipleship opportunities 
Our college ministry is about integrating students into the church body
  • For your growth (discipleship, mentoring by older believers)
  • For your service and involvement
  • For your future involvement in the local church
  • For you to grasp what "being the church" means
Home Away From Home is an opportunity for  Northstar members to "adopt" a college student for an academic year. The heart of Home Away From Home is for our church to invite you into our lives, a family at a time, to encourage you, to share life with you, and to share the love of Jesus through hospitality.
