North Greenville University

North Greenville University is located in Tigerville in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains near Greenville, SC. The campus setting provides a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains, with the college itself situated on the summit of a rolling hill amid acres of land. NGU has hosted FUGE camps since 1982 and is now one of our largest locations. We offer both Centrifuge and MFUGE at NGU.

Amenities

The NGU campus offers a game room, campus bookstore, Chick-Fil-A, tennis courts, gym, lake with kayaking, hiking trails, and more! NOTE: Restaurants and stores like Walmart are about 15 minutes away in Traveler’s Rest. There is a general store and gas station across the street from campus, but Papa John’s Pizza is the only restaurant in the store. Housing: Most camper housing is suite style dorms with two people per room sharing a bath with another room of two.

Worship Leader

The Museum

It might not sound like it, but the Atlanta based worship band “The Museum” is actually named after a revolution. During a 2008 musical mission trip to Romania, drummer Josh Kirk found himself at a ceremony commemorating the end of Communism in that country twenty years earlier. “There was a small, humble museum near the square that told the story,” he recalls. “Turns out it was a group of Christians that actually brought about that political and social revolution.” Twenty years later the political changes were celebrated but the spiritual center of the revolution had been mostly forgotten. There was little evidence of Christian influence in the culture. “That little museum remained though, offering a glimpse into the kind of faith that can turn a nation upside down.” Shortly thereafter, singer and songwriter Ben Richter formed the band that would explore the big themes of their lives – faith, justice and worship – with an eye toward waking the church to the incendiary role it should be playing in the world. “We were, and are, all worship leaders,” Richter explains, “and we have a passion for the local church. But as much as we love to sing together on Sunday morning, we felt a calling to bring songs that would challenge the Church to live out lives of worship all week long.”
