Northrise University

Northrise University is a God-given vision to empower the Zambians through education.

Zambia is one of the world’s poorest countries and previously only had two universities. As the third tertiary institution and first private university, Northrise University, has focused on three areas – Theology/Bible Studies, Information Technology/Business and Agriculture.

A five-storey building was purchased in down-town Ndola (northern Zambia in the copper-belt region of Zambia) and was outfitted with state of the art equipment. Recently the Zambian government gave a title for 640 acres to Northrise University to build a new university campus. Plans and development are well under way.

Currently Northrise graduates have shown outstanding success in achieving employment. Bayside Church, along with other churches, is committed to sending containers of educational and building equipment to Zambia. Ongoing educational and building resources are required, as well as funds to support volunteers working within the University, sponsoring of students and transporting additional containers.

Sponsorships for students exist from as little as $250-$750 a year. Sponsorships cover food and tuition fees. If you are interested in sponsoring a student contact the Church.

Join Search and Rescue in supporting this outstanding work which is helping to empower a generation of Zambians to help bring positive change for their nation.
