National Baptist Congress and its Vision Conference.
“We are honored to partner with the National Baptist Congress to provide theological education for church leaders,” said Northern President Dr. Bill Shiell. “For over a century, the National Baptist Congress has been providing relevant training for Christian leaders in their local contexts. Our relationship will National Baptists will seek to do as Paul instructed Timothy: to entrust biblical teaching to reliable people who can in turn teach others.”
Through this partnership, Northern will issue certificates to those who complete courses at the National Baptist Congress annual meeting. National Baptist Congress provides seminars, courses, and workshops to their attendees with the goal of helping them elevate the work they are doing for God across the nation. “Northern’s new partnership with the National Baptist Congress and its Vision Conference positions Northern to extend its reach and add value to Faith Leaders and Christian workers throughout the nation,” said Dr. Gerald Dew, Director of Northern’s Urban Leadership program.

Registrants will also have the opportunity to pursue degree programs at Northern Seminary through its interactive live-streaming classes, Northern Live.
“Our new reach will also enhance our capacity to recruit students to our many degree and certificate programs especially through the use of Northern Live and Seminary Now, said Dew.
