Every year at Homecoming, the Alumni Association confers awards on alumni of The King’s College or of Northeastern Bible College to honor alumni who have distinguished themselves in service to Christ, the College or the Alumni Association, or in other areas.
Nominate an Alumnus
Do you know an outstanding graduate of The King’s College or Northeastern Bible College? Please read the criteria for each award to determine the best fit for your nominee. If nominating more than one person for awards, please fill out the form once for each person.
The Alumnus of the Year Award is granted annually to an alumnus or alumna who has distinguished himself/herself in his/her chosen field, and who exemplifies the Christian philosophy of the College through a life dedicated to the Lord. The candidate must have attended either The King’s College or Northeastern Bible College for one full semester, but the preference will be for a graduate of either institution.
The Distinguished Service Award is granted to an alumnus or alumna who has provided outstanding service to either the College or to the Alumni Association. While all of our officers and governors serve unselfishly and are generous in sharing their time and talents with the school, there are those whose service has been far beyond the call of duty. Distinguished Service Award recipients have served King’s in a very special way, and thus the award may be given only on infrequent occasions as a means of expressing the love, respect, and appreciation of the Alumni Association for invaluable service.
The Charles W. Anderson Award is granted annually to an alumnus or alumna of either The King’s College or Northeastern Bible College in full-time vocational ministry. He or she should embrace NBC’s vision—Christ for a Lost World—through a life of faithfulness, sacrifice, and pioneering spirit. The award is named after Northeastern Bible College’s founding president, Charles W. Anderson, to perpetuate his vision for NBC and to demonstrate NBC’s shared vision with King’s to influence the world.
The mission of The King’s College is accomplished through its Alumni. Transforming society through shaping, then leading strategic national institutions is no easy feat and requires courage, integrity, vision, and tenacity. Together, these are the key components of a pioneering spirit and are exemplified by J. Stanley Oakes, the fourth president of The King’s College. President Oakes took on the daunting challenge of reestablishing King’s in New York City, driven by a vision to educate Christians to influence culture at its core ideas, rather than react to secular society. This award is in honor of President Oakes and seeks to recognize those Alumni who both embody the mission of The King’s College and demonstrate a pioneering spirit by using his or her career to influence strategic national institutions.
