Leadership Institute

The Northside Leadership Institute exists to develop Christian leaders through meaningful education and training designed to connect people to Jesus.

NLI offers two great programs and Wednesday night classes in Spiritual Formation: 


School of Ministry

This inexpensive 1- or 2-year program on Thursday nights equips students to become effective Christian leaders in any field where God might call them to serve.  The program provides a solid Bible education, trains in practical ministry, equips for leadership, and provides the opportunity for hands-on training with Northside pastors in a specialized area of ministry.  This area is overseen by Doug Newland, Outreach Minister.  Fall classes begin August 22.
