Spiritual growth doesn't happen by accident. With your finances, you have to be intentional and plan for success. Likewise, careers don’t just take place. You plan for them. Spiritual health is very much the same. It doesn’t just happen. To be spiritually healthy, and to grow in Christ, you must plan for growth. This is where Northfield University comes in.  Named and patterned after the structure of a university, Northfield University offers short-courses ranging from Financial Peace and Divorce Recovery to deep, textual studies of the Bible to ensure that you will find something relevant to your life no matter where you are in your walk with Jesus. 

Along with Life Groups and Sunday worship, Northfield University is a vital component to your continued growth in Jesus. It will help equip you to truly love God, love people, and make Jesus known.
