I love working at Northern Seminary. I have taught and served the Lord at Northern Seminary for twenty-nine years because, as a school of the church, we are serving God’s Kingdom every day. Northern’s vision is “to prepare leaders who will faithfully serve Jesus Christ with evangelical passion and mission skills in biblically grounded and culturally relevant ministries.”
We prepare students to become future pastors and positively impact their communities with the same effect of a rock being dropped into a mirrored lake…the impact forms rings which continue to grow and expand outward. That is exactly what our graduates do in sharing God’s word!
As a school of the church, we are convinced that effective ministry in the next millennium will demand a special kind of faith, one that is committed to the truth of the gospel, unwavering in its loyalty to the scriptures, empowered by the Spirit, reflective of the body of Christ’s ethnic and cultural diversity, and settled in its support of both men and women in ministry.
One of our current students, Tash, felt God’s leading to attend Northern seminary but she was in need of financial support to fulfil what God put on her heart to do. God provided! Tash was awarded a scholarship, and she is very excited about moving forward to answer God’s call to serve the Kingdom! It couldn’t have been made possible without partners and friends like you.
Today is a special day for charities worldwide. Today is “Giving Tuesday.” Today you may receive a lot of requests to support many worthy projects and I realize you can’t support them all. However, I would like you to consider making a contribution to Northern’s scholarship fund.
Our goal is to raise $200,000 with the funds to be used to train students for ministry by attending Northern Seminary. Please join me and make an online gift today! Click on this secured link and then donate now to give your tax deductible gift. Any amount is greatly appreciated!
Thank you for joining me in training the next generation of church leaders.
