2023 NITOC Nugget, Edition 1

Updated: Apr 26, 2023

Don’t miss out! NITOC 2023 starts on Sunday, May 21st at 2:30 pm PDT. Parents and students can check in and dorms will be available. Keep this in mind when making your flight and housing arrangements. Sunday afternoon will be a great time to connect with Stoa friends from across the country and get familiar with the Concordia University campus! If you pre-ordered a t-shirt or a hoodie, today’s the day to pick it up!

Bring your picnic dinner or order a boxed meal on the NITOC website to enjoy On the Green. Be sure to bring a beach towel, blanket, or beach chair to sit on as you enjoy the warm California sunshine. There will be a couple of dessert vendors on hand for you to purchase a sweet to end your meal. We will then enjoy time together at the Welcome to NITOC 2023 opening! This will include worship music and a Sunday night message.

Have any friends or family living in the Southern California area? Reach out to them and invite them to come to meet you at NITOC 2023! Our Community Judge Team is ready to greet them with smiles! Click here for the NITOC 2023 Community Judge Page.
