Training Students for a Lifetime of Service
Northland Institute hosts a uniquely different, residential Bible program that allows students to earn a one or two year diploma.
There is nothing more effective than the practical and personal participation a residential program can provide where each student is given targeted, personal attention and dynamic instruction in a conservative, Christian atmosphere. Online classes may bring a greater convenience, but they fall short of the practical ministry and life-touching-life experience.
Students that Benefit
The Northland Institute benefits those desiring to invest a year or more of their lives to increase their Bible knowledge, shape their Christian life and enhance their life skills. We invite single, Christian young people, ages 18 or older, to participate in this specialized Bible foundations and life skills training program before enlisting in the military, attending a secular college, or going directly into the workforce. The Northland Institute is also perfect for students looking for Bible training, leadership development, and vocational enrichment – after high school, during their early to mid-twenties, after military service, or after their four-year college degree.
Can I Take Individual Courses?
Northland offers the option of attending only a few block courses throughout the year to laymen or women. There is no formal registration process for this option; however, we would need to know at least two weeks before the seminar date of anyone planning to attend. The cost for attending an individual seminar is $200. The cost for students needing meals and a place to stay will be $280. Our course listing can be viewed here.
- $3,500/yr working 20+ hours a week
- $6,000/yr working 10+ hours a week
- $1,000 scholarship available to those who serve at Northland Camp during the summer
* Cost includes room, board, & tuition. Does not include missions trip or books.
* We’ve tried to keep the cost down through having students work (compare to $20,000 plus at several Christian colleges). Serving in camp ministry also builds life skills and an opportunity for life-touching-life discipleship in the work place.

LIFE-IMPACTING EMPHASIS – We are not merely telling young people what to do; we are also showing them how to live. While one of our goals is to educate each student, the greater goal is to see young people take their course material and practical life skills training and develop a heart for God, a love for others, a servant’s heart in ministry, an established foundation of Bible-based principles that will guide them for the rest of their lives.
LOCAL CHURCH LIFE – The Northland Institute provides pastors a substantial and creative alternative when discussing educational and practical ministry training options with the college-age young people in their church.

Each instructor possesses academic credentials, has mastered his course material, and has the ability to creatively, confidently, and passionately teach our students. The instructors are approachable, personable and inspiring, offering students encouragement to develop their walk with God and practical helps that will improve their lives and ministry effectiveness.
SOUL-WINNING FERVENCY – Giving students a chance to practically proclaim the gospel to the world should be important in any training institution. Students are thoroughly trained in evangelistic outreach and will develop a fervent passion for souls. Regular soul-winning trips are planned throughout surrounding communities.
