Nathaniel Sutherland ’17 received a Promising Scholar Award from Stone-Campbell Journal for the 2016-’17 academic year. Sutherland was one of 14 undergraduates in the nation to receive the annual award given to students who show outstanding promise in biblical and theological education. Stone-Campbell Journal announced the award recipients in late September
“I am humbled to receive this award,” Sutherland said. “Northwest Christian University was the place where I heard God’s call for my life and through the support of an excellent faculty, I have a strong biblical and theological foundation to draw on in my work.”
Sutherland graduated from Northwest Christian University in May 2017 with bachelor of arts degree in Bible and theology. After graduation, he and his wife Emily (Scotton) Sutherland ’17 moved to Columbus, Ohio, where he is the director of worship at Capital City Church.
“Nathaniel was an outstanding student who worked hard to prepare for a life of service in the church,” said Dennis Lindsay, Dr. Theol., Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dean of Faculty and Professor, and Biblical Studies. “His work at NCU was exemplary.”
