This continues to be a fruitful time for us at Northwest as we pursue our mission of ministry leadership development. I am very excited about the addition of Don Chang to our faculty, our first faculty hire in more than ten years. Our Korean programs are growing quickly and it is important for us to […]
There have been many Northwest’s over the years. Some of you relate best to our experience as part of ACTS Seminaries. Others remember college life on the campus of Trinity Western. For some, Northwest will always be located on Marine Drive in Vancouver, or perhaps even in Port Coquitlam. Many of our current students experience […]
Opportunity is an interesting phenomenon. It comes and goes. You need to grab it when it is present, because you are never sure when it might come again – or so it seems. The reality is that opportunity presents when people God has prepared meet the moment that God intends. At Northwest, we have that […]
Colombia is a great example of the kind of place a seminary like Northwest needs to be engaged.
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 […]
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, […]

Northwest Baptist Seminary Summary of the Board of Governor’s Meeting October 17, 2009 Every two years the Board at their October meeting gathers for a two day retreat, that incorporates their business meeting. They defined their theme this year as “learning how to develop leaders collaboratively – a ten year perspective.” So much of what […]
Recently a report came across my desk urging leaders to “master the discipline of uncertainty.” Since they cannot predict the future, leaders must “adopt, adapt, and build” new capabilities to navigate uncertainty. Sounds severely challenging! But it is no different when it comes to equipping ministry leaders. Diverse changes occurring in the evangelical church world, […]
The English word ‘crisis’ has its origins in a Greek noun meaning “exercise judgment.” A crisis requires a person to discern very carefully a just response to current or emerging circumstances. Usually it defined the activity of judges in a legal setting, evaluating the behaviour of people and holding them accountable. Times of crisis require […]
Human beings have been creating simple maps before they knew how to write. The oldest maps in the world pre-date the third millennium before Christ. Our desire to locate ourselves and find our destination seems to be as old as human creation itself. And this cartographic creativity is not limited to one group of human […]
