Northwest Partnership Program

The Northwest Partnership Program (NPP) blends the best of what Northwest does, accredited academics, with what local churches do best, practical leadership training, all in the environment of life-changing relationships found in local churches and non-profit organizations.

“Being able to shadow different staff members has shown me what it takes to be a good leader… Whether you are a senior pastor or a night-time janitor, you should always have a heart to serve the church.”

–Matthew Schaefer, NPP Student at Evergreen Church
