The One Church School of Ministry & Leadership exists to prepare skilled, educated, and mature Christians for service in the world and to the mission of Jesus Christ

Program Overview


Through our partnership with Northwest University, One Church School of Ministry & Leadership students get the very best of both the academic and practical ministry worlds. Northwest University faculty and One Church staff will speak into your life on a daily basis, implanting the education and skills that you need to fulfill God’s plan for you.


Students in the One Church School of Ministry & Leadership will be enrolled full-time in Northwest University (NU) taking online classes and classes with a live instructor. The NU courses are equivalent in every way to those taught on NU’s Kirkland campus, while remaining sensitive to the One Church ministry philosophy. Concurrent with your courses, you will serve as an student at a thriving church where you can apply your lessons to real-world needs within One Church’s community, focusing on a specific ministry within the church, and working closely with a member of our pastoral team.

We want to see future leaders impact the Church and the world for Christ

Who’s It For?


Whether you plan on being a full-time or part time student, pursuing an AA, BA or ministry credentials, this program prepares you for God’s call on your life. The One Church School of Ministry and Leadership allows you to get this practical training and a university degree at a reasonable cost (at a time when the cost of higher education is skyrocketing), all at a local church.
