The School of Ministry is an inexpensive one- or two-year program that equips college age and adults 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 ministers in a specialized area of ministry.
Students will take two 1.5 hour classes per week on Thursday afternoon/evenings during the school year--one Bible class, and one practical ministry class. Those considering vocational ministry pursuits are urged to complete the 2-year program, plus serve two terms of a practicum with a minister/director to gain valuable hands-on experience.
More Program & Class Info
Who Can Attend
This program is offered to college age and adults who want to give their lives to Christian ministry, whether vocationally or as a high capacity volunteer leader, but don't see the traditional 4-year Bible college or seminary degree as a viable option. This program is doable for those working full-time or taking other local college classes.
See if This is Right for You
For those completing just one year, you'll receive a Northside 1-year certificate. Those enrolled in year two will attend the International Conference on Missions (ICOM) in November, and may have the opportunity to join a ministry team to a conference. Upon completion of the full 2-year program, including practicums, the graduate will earn a Northside 2-yr certificate and a scholarship of $900 towards a Northside short-term mission trip. Completion of the program might even help land that ministry internship or job.
Accreditation & Completion Info
$1,000 per year covers all books, classroom instruction, conferences, apprenticeship, and a credit towards a mission trip in the second year.
