Local Pastor

Northwind Seminary's Local Pastor Degree  Completion program is designed for United Methodist or Nazarene Pastors who have completed their Local Pastor Course of Study


At Northwind Seminary, our faith-based degree completion programs are designed to fit into your
lifestyle, family, work, and Ministry.  There are no semesters at NTS, start your course anywhere, anytime, on any device. Our students take one course at a time and study at their own pace completing courses in as little as 30 days and a maximum of 90 days.


NTS Local Pastor Degree Completion students can transfer their Course of Study coursework and ministry experience in the Master of Pastoral Ministry Degree. That leaves only 18 credits which can be completed in as little as three months for only $3000 in tuition payable in three installments.


The Faculty Mentor facilitates scheduled video conversations and participates in the portfolio preparation and examination.


Students journey through a series of research milestones to generate the final Capstone Project that addresses a Need or Opportunity in their ministry context.


Students set their own schedule and proceed at their own pace. Each course can be completed within 30 to 90 days.
