It is always exciting to hear about alumni who are doing well in the ministries for which they are called. I was amazed to see a picture of Northwest alum, Geordan Rendle on a giant video screen in New York City’s Times Square as he was being announced for this role as president of Youth […]
I don’t anticipate my children will concoct scientific learning labs in the kitchen to reinforce the Bible passage they’ve read for the day. Nor do I expect that one will stack couch cushions to build the walls of Jericho while the other unearths Dad’s trumpet from his ’80s glory days to blow the wall down. […]
What makes Northwest the special training institution that it is today? Alongside the grace and provision of God – it is the people that God has directed to be involved with the school throughout its 80 year history. Many men and women have faithfully and passionately served the Fellowship and Northwest over the years, and […]

These retreats into the great outdoors can be enjoyable if you have the proper equipment and training. A simple overnight camping trip can turn into a nightmare if you forget the tent (or the coffee for some). Likewise, if your ‘theological gear’ is a little rusty, […]

The next 10 years saw Dr. […]
It is a wonderful thing to observe how God leads. When Mark Carroll told me he was leaving Northwest my feelings were mixed. On one hand, I was thrilled to see Mark step up to lead one of our great churches. After all, that is why we are doing this work. On the other hand, […]
Mark & Stephanie Carroll have left Northwest to take up a new position as lead pastor couple at Whitehorse Baptist Church. Just before they left I caught up with Mark for an interview. Tell me about your personal and spiritual journey: I think the best summary of my spiritual journey would be running, then submitting, […]
It’s true. I have bought a lot of things over the years. Some things were small items but I have made a number of significant purchases like the wedding ring for my beautiful wife, Natalie. Other shiny things worth mentioning include golf clubs, tools, kitchen gadgets, cars, iPhones and other electronic devices. You may likely […]
We love our alumni. Most schools do. It is deeply encouraging to learn ways by which those who have studied with us have gone on to apply their education in fruitful ways. I thought I would mention three of our alumni from across the years, who have come to our attention in particular ways these […]

Watching the Olympics was a frustrating experience for my family. Half-way through the games, my son stopped watching any tv coverage because watching Canada’s Olympic team’s performance or lack thereof became too painful. While other countries had former Olympic stars come out of retirement and dominate – ours fell or did not recover properly from […]
Reflections of a former Northwest President Reflecting back on your involvement with Northwest over the years, what are some highlights for you in terms of Northwest’s role in the preparation/development of leaders for the Fellowship? My relationship with Northwest has covered a span of sixty years. It began when my new bride and I returned […]
