Bushnell University provides a transformational educational experience that champions wisdom, faith, and service, providing graduates with superb career preparation within a Christ-centered environment.


As an undergraduate at Bushnell University, you’ll benefit from a highly personal educational experience led by truly extraordinary faculty. In classrooms that average only 14 students, and through an array of internship opportunities, you’ll learn how to think critically, communicate effectively, and work collaboratively as you answer God’s call in your life.

Be a Follower of Christ


Undergraduate students explore, discover, and grow within the context of a Christ-centered community. Immersed in all aspects of the Bushnell University experience, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in signature ministry and service programming designed to foster your spiritual formation.


During the week, students have the chance to experience God through scripture, praise, and worship. Chapel takes on many glorifying forms, from heartfelt songs to inspiring messages from faculty, students, and local pastors sharing words of faith and service.

Be a Leader


Beacons put their faith into action by sharing God’s love in real ways within our city and world.

Bushnell University students, faculty, and staff work with numerous local service organizations such as St. Vincent DePaul, Eugene Mission, Hosea Youth Ministry, and Food for Lane County. Faith will be strengthened through programs like Night of Prayer, The Touch Project, Embrace the City Day, and Spiritual Formation week. In addition, you’ll have an opportunity to participate in annual mission trips. Past missions have included Seattle, San Francisco, Mexico, Africa, Romania, and Cambodia.
