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 music with our student led band.
Mission: We offer the students many opportunities for mission and service. Examples include a monthly dinner served to homeless and needy families in Bozeman and a yearly 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!

Janna & Bobby Lauver
Janna is a Hi-Line girl, born and raised in Chester, MT. She joined the United Methodist Church as a middle school student, played volleyball and tennis and volunteered as a camp counselor at Flathead Lake UM Camp and Luccock Park Camp. She graduated from Montana State University-Billings in 2004 with a BS in Public Relations before taking a couple corporate jobs that sent her running back to working with kids, teens and young adults. She works at Bozeman United Methodist Church full time.
Bobby grew up in Great Falls and moved a few times before landing back in his hometown where he graduated high school. He received his auto body certificate, his business degree and later a teaching degree and has worked at a newspaper, a couple of banks and the Muscular Dystrophy Assoc.
He enjoys playing basketball and kayaking. Bobby also worked a couple of corporate jobs before one long road trip on bad MT winter roads forced him to reevaluate his career and return to the classroom. Bobby teaches 6-12th grade business/technology in Three Forks.
Janna and Bobby have led weekly program at our campus ministry at the Christus Collegium since 2011. Both of their kids Peyton (age 7) and Andrew (>1 year old) have been coming to campus ministry with their parents since they were born!
Corinne is a junior at MSU studying Organismal Biology and Biochemistry. When she isn't studying in the library or researching plant chemistry, she can be found running, skiing, climbing, or otherwise enjoying God's creation.
