WHO ARE WE?
OUR MISSION: Northwind Theological Seminary is an evangelical, online seminary serving many denominations. Rooted in the Wesleyan tradition, we have a strong emphasis on the Bible, spiritual formation, and discipleship.
OUR VISION: Our vision is to be the seminary of choice for persons who seek and earned ministry degree in a non-traditional setting.
OUR VALUES: Northwind Theological Seminary is globally engaged, biblically informed, and ministry focused.
Committed to serving the global church
Committed to personal growth and spiritual formation
Committed to effective use of technology for education and ministry
Our approach to supporting ministry is based on the notion of ministry effectiveness.
Our focus remains on new notions and approaches to ministry in a postmodern setting.
We provide online theological education, ministry consulting and partnerships.
We are exploring off the map for new notions of local church ministry in the postmodern era. While the Mondern Era defined "successful" ministry based on
numbers, we define "effective" ministry in the Posmodern Era based on experiences.
We are focused on providing quality education for local church leaders to encourage and equip those who are engaged in local church ministry. We are focused on
providing quality consulting services to support clergy and church effectiveness.
We believe that technology has made it possible to deliver high-quality Online Courses and Consulting Services in new exciting formats. These new formats provide a cost-effective platform that supports an education and consulting experiences in ways that have not been previously possible.
