Why is Northern Committed to Partnerships?

Seminaries exist to serve the needs of Christ’s Church and her leaders.  So the better question might be, do seminaries matter apart from meaningful partnerships with churches and Christian organizations?


By creating partnership-based programs with churches and organizations who share our passion for equipping missional leaders, we are able to… 

  • promote Christian unity.
  • root theological education in ministry contexts.
  • multiply students access to experienced leaders, ministry opportunities, and organizational resources.
  • develop relationships between emerging leaders, students, and the churches or organizations who need them.

If you are a church or organization that wants to explore the opportunities of partnership, we’d love to have a conversation. Contact Northern Seminary.

If you are a prospective student that wants to explore the sort of theological education that takes place in and through partnerships, here are some current opportunities.
