New Life Leadership Institute is in partnership with Northwest University, one of Washington State's top-ranked universities. Northwest University is fully accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. Students will have the opportunity to pursue an Associates or Bachelors degree. Students will enroll in a full course load every semester, putting them on track to earn their Associates in 2 years or Bachelors in 4 years.  Students will receive credits for work in a traditional classroom setting, online classes, and ministry practicum for their work among the different departments at New Life Church. We believe the flexibility in their school schedule will teach them time management skills as well as allow them to maintain a part-time job outside of the internship. This program blends academics with both leadership and ministry training.

Internship Credit:
Students earn 3 credits per semester for their internship work, for free!
