WELCOME TO TNT!
What are we all about?
God is there.
Sometimes it can feel as if God is as far away as the home you left 700 miles and two weeks ago to come to college. Or the home you leave each day for the commute to classes.
But God is there.
You just have to look. Maybe in some unexpected places. Maybe in some unexpected ways. And maybe in some pretty unexpected situations.
Fellowship: Each Thursday night students gather at the Christus Collegium, the Methodist campus building near campus. We meet from 6:00—8:00 pm for a homemade meal followed by games and fun, discussion and art.
Mission: We offer the students many opportunities for mission and service. Examples include a monthly dinner served to homeless and families in need in Bozeman and an annual spring break mission trip. Teams have traveled to Seattle, Phoenix, El Salvador, and San Francisco!
Social: We offer a variety of opportunities for fun all year long, including retreats, pizza and bowling nights, skiing, Christmas and Halloween parties, a Seder meal, movie and game nights and much, much more!

Having fallen in love with the Bozeman area, he is currently studying at MSU for his Master's of Public Administration.
