Faculty

Northern Seminary was founded in 1913 with the purpose of training leaders for the church. Almost 100 years later, we are still focused on that goal. Northern’s vision is to prepare leaders who will faithfully serve Jesus Christ with evangelical passion and missionary skills in Biblically grounded and culturally relevant ministries.
