                                                                                                                                        Our Founder and "The Analytical Process For Applied Education"

Northwestern Theological Seminary utilizes a unique, revolutionary, process for learning. Developed by our founder, Dr. Howard M. Sarkela, in early August of 1980, this process is more than a teaching system and better termed as a contemporary process for assimilation and application of knowledge. Dr. Sarkela, has compared numerous colleges and universities and found that the old system of education was greatly lacking in effectiveness and efficiency. He found that the archaic, yet still in practice, system of memorizing lists and cramming for examinations resulted in considerable loss of knowledge because of the fact that much which is memorized through cramming goes into our short term memory and may be quickly forgotten. As a result of his discovery he decided that there must be a better way, whereby students can acquire knowledge and assimilate it as well as be able to retrieve it for application in their lives and careers. "The Analytical Process For Applied Education," is our contemporary educational model for quality learning at Northwestern Theological Seminary. The process involves asking questions that are personally relevant, thus allowing for better memory function in recall.

We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.            . (1 John. 4:6)

That I may know Him, in the power of His resurrection and in fellowship with His sufferings, being conformed to His death.  (Philippians 3:10)

I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ, and the life that I now live, I live by faith in my Lord and God, who loved me and gave His life for me.  (Galatians 2:20)
