SPORTS & FITNESS

Sport and fitness have redemptive and innate benefits for individuals and communities.  In addition, fitness and wellness allows individuals to be fit in their body as well as their mind and spirit, thus being equipped to literally live and walk out the calling on their life from God.  The emerging College of Sports and Fitness is called to disciple the next generation of sports leaders to impact this sphere with a Biblical and transformational worldview.

The UofN uses two types of credits, FLW (full learning weeks) and LCU (learning component units).

FLW credits are used with traditional residential courses and one of these credits requires a minimum of 50 hours of documented learning activities; these include our normal lectures, small groups, one-on-ones, etc.; and some of these activities are nonformal, in addition to the classroom activities and study assignments.

LCU credits are used for part-time programs like evening courses, intensive seminars, distance learning and other non-residential courses. Each LCU credit requires 25 hours of focused learning activities which can be spread over a period of time.
