President’s April Newsletter

Dear Friends,

Happy Easter! As the season of resurrection continues, I hope you have heard the calm, quiet voice of Jesus asking, “Do you love me?”


LEADERSHIP LUNCH WITH DR. LEE SPITZER

For Holocaust Remembrance Day, Dr. Lee Spitzer, General Secretary of American Baptist Churches, U.S.A., spoke to a fantastic group of alumni, staff, faculty, and friends of Northern Seminary. He addressed “Baptists, Jews and the Holocaust: The Hand of Sincere Friendship.”


CAN MCDONALD’S BECOME A PLACE FOR EVANGELISM AND COMMUNION?

Yes if you’re Dr. David Fitch. Read more about his powerful interview in Outreach Magazine and learn how Northern is training pastors to reach our culture.


A PASTOR IN LOVE WITH THE CHURCH

Pastor Tara Beth Leach loves the church, and she learned how from Northern Seminary. Read about her story and ministry at Pasadena Nazarene Church.


TASTE OF NORTHERN

On Monday, May 14th we are opening up our classroom doors (literally and digitally) to anyone who wants to join. Here are two ways you can support us (and the first is the most important):

  1. Pray for the day: that God would be at work in the students, professors, and potential students, guiding and weaving his work among and through us.
  2. Invite 2 people to attend these free classes. Think of people who are ready for the next step in their ministry preparation or are already thinking about seminary (just forward this email to them).

And you can come too! If you want to get to know a new group of students or learn from your favorite professors, then you are welcome to join us.

Or just share this video on Facebook and tag some friends!

SIGN UP FOR A FREE EMAIL CLASS ON PREACHING

Sermons often only connect with 1 out of 4 people. But you can change this by learning the 8 different “intelligences” that are sitting in your congregation. In this FREE E-Course by Northern Seminary’s President, Bill Shiell, you will learn how to engage your entire congregation with God’s word.


Thank you for participating in our alumni survey. We’ve received a fantastic response and feedback and are looking forward to improving our services.

Sincerely,

William D. Shiell
President, Northern Seminary
