About Northeastern Seminary

Our multi-racial, multi-cultural, multi-generational church has a mission to build a bridge into our community and beyond so that all people can find hope, find love and find God.

James Laughlin, Alum & Lead Pastor of Joy Community Church

What We Believe

Northeastern Seminary is a place where students are being transformed in a dynamic and supportive learning community, where graduates embody, articulate, and advance the kingdom of God in a variety of ministry contexts around the world, and where the church and community are served through lifelong learning for pastors and church leaders.

The vision of Northeastern Seminary is to be a vibrant source for Christian theological formation whose students are formed in a biblical vision of gracious Christianity and impart wholeness to the world in an expansive array of vocations and contexts. 

The true measure of our commitment to … equality cannot be measured by how we treat the rich, the powerful, the privileged, and the respected among us. The true measure of our character is how we treat the poor, the disfavored, the accused, the incarcerated, and the condemned."

Bryan Stevenson, Just Mercy
