Every student at Northpoint Bible College majors in Biblical Studies. The core of Northpoint’s mission statement is to teach and train students for excellent Pentecostal ministry. The Church Ministries Division exists to teach and train men and women called to the teaching ministry of the Church so they may disciple believers in the faith, in maturity, and in-service – whether that ministry is to adults, teenagers, or children. Children and Family Ministry, Student Ministry, Pastoral Ministry, and Ministry Leadership are the second majors offered within this program. Each second major is specifically designed to introduce the student to the various development levels, counselling issues, and teaching methodologies appropriate for ministry to the designated age group.
The Church Ministries Department aims to develop believers within the Church who glorify God and please Him, who grow in the way, the truth, and the life, and who can confidently and competently share the gospel message with family, friends, neighbours, and the world.
The Church Ministries Division prepares the student to:
Recognize and respond to their unique call to ministry and to develop socially, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually as a leader with integrity, modelling a Christian lifestyle to those in the Church and the world;
