SOULS Northwest’s purpose is to prepare and train a new generation of energetic, committed soul-winners who can lead churches in the Northwest to win souls for Jesus.
Your experience at SOULS will focus on excellence in academics with an emphasis in becoming a thinker—not just a person who regurgitates facts. You’ll also be exposed to the many different outreach ministries that local churches engage in. Whether it's Bible work or health ministries or public evangelism, you’ll be mentored through real-world experience and be prepared to lead.
Our focus on principle-based teaching gives you the foundation you need to adapt to any church, in any community. Your power to think and to do is what we cultivate.
“Every Human being, created in the image of God, is endowed with a power akin to that of the Creator—individuality, power to think and to do. The men [and women] in whom this power is developed are the men [and women] who bear responsibilities, who are leaders in enterprise, and who influence character.”
Ellen G. White, Education, p 17
In addition to a focus on principle-based instruction SOULS Northwest has an immersive on-the-job training model. That means you'll be learning good principles and then testing them out in the field in a real-world ministry experience. We work with local churches in small groups so every one of our students gets an immersive experience. But that's not all. The staff at SOULS Northwest are dedicated to mentoring our students, and we make a commitment to spend several hours to a full day of ministry with each of our students every week they are in the field. This one-on-one training is unequaled in any educational environment in ministry training, you'll only get this at SOULS.
SOULS Northwest is a ministry of the North Pacific Union of Seventh-day Adventists. We are sponsored by the Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, Upper Columbia, and Washington conferences.
