RSVP to Northern’s Virtual Founders Day Celebration

Thursday, October 7, 2021
11:45 – 1:00 p.m. (CST)

You’re invited to join Northern Seminary, either virtually or in-person at our Lisle Center, to celebrate the inspiring work our faculty, staff, and students have done for the Church. Join us as we come together to celebrate and look toward the future of Northern.


Northern Seminary’s innovative programs are strengthening the call of Gospel ministers everyday.  Amid the noise and chaos of our world, pastoral leaders are hearing the voice of God and today, they are saying, “Here am I, send me!” We want to show you more and invite you to support our students with scholarships.

During This Celebration You Will:

HEAR our Keynote Speaker, Keri Ladouceur. Keri is the Community Pastor at Community Christian Church in Naperville, Illinois, and a Northern Student in the Master of Arts in New Testament program.

REJOICE in what God is doing through Northern Seminary as you hear stories from President Bill Shiell and others!

CELEBRATE our anniversary classes of 1971 (50 Years) and 1996 (25 Years).

GIVE towards Scholarships for the Master of Arts in Women’s Studies program. We have received a generous challenge grant of $100,000 towards this project and our Founder’s Day goal is to match this dollar for dollar for a total of $200,000 raised toward scholarships.


Attire is business casual. Free Parking is available on site.
