The Northwestern Theological Seminary system of education began in Detroit, Michigan (USA) in 1980 as an educational ministry of our Presiding Bishop; Dr. Howard M. Sarkela and Christian Alliance Ministries. Founded over 30 years ago, our educational ministry provided its first curriculum at the Detroit Christian Guidance Center in the Scripps Mansion on Trumbull Avenue. At the Guidance Center, six instructors taught a college level curriculum of Bible centered instruction to residents of a spiritual growth program, leading to a certificate in Religious Education. This educational program was initiated while Dr. Sarkela was a Chaplain.
THE LAUNCH INTO THE INTERNET
As the internet began to have more of a presence around the world, it was evident to Northwestern that a launch into offering Online Programs needed to be made. And so, the Seminary began operating their online programs successfully, reaching students around the world. This move proved to be aligned with the overall objective and mission of this educational ministry, which was to equip men and women to take part in effectively increasing the Kingdom of God the a Bible-centered programs which would impact world for Jesus Christ.
Although a launch had been accomplished into the internet, students still found themselves having to submit by postal mail their assignments, making the completion process much longer due to time lost in mail transit of student submissions of completed course assignments.
THE SEMINARY TODAY
Today, Christian Alliance Ministries has grown to include thousands of affiliate Churches and hundreds of thousands of affiliate members worldwide. Northwestern Theological Seminary continues to teach and spread the good news of the Gospel through accredited online degree programs and Christian education.
The Online Seminary now operates its programs by the use of the Moodle System, a world-known and highly popular Course Management System, being utilized by major universities around the world, like UCLA, LSU, and the University of Canterbury. Known to our Seminary community as the NTSMoodle, this new Course Management System was modified to fit the objectives of Northwestern Theological Seminary. Through the advances of modern technology and the implementation of many accelerated degree programs, students are now able to complete their degree programs in anywhere between 12 weeks to 1 year.
As a theologically accredited online educational ministry of Christian Alliance Ministries, Northwestern Theological Seminary is united with the same goal and purpose, which is, to perform our Christian responsibility in obedience to the Lord’s Great Commission (as found in Matthew Chapter 28:18-20 and other gospels). Our Lord Jesus, through the Great Commission, commanded his followers to educate others, concerning the meaning of the Gospel, by making disciples of all nations. We are reaching many nations of the world through our accredited online degree programs and we currently have directors and ministries in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
Jesus said, "The fields are white unto harvest, but the workers are few". (Matthew 9:37)
Currently, our International headquarters is located in the U.S.A. However, Christian Alliance Ministries is a worldwide ministry. Our mission, is to share the GOSPEL in every nation of the world, by preparing men and women with God's calling to expand His Kingdom. Jesus commands us to go forth and teach, sharing the GOSPEL and making disciples of all nations. This mission is being accomplished, by Northwestern Theological Seminary, through biblical accredited online education and discipleship of men and women, in synchronization with and in agreement with the same overall ministry goal, vision and purpose.

THE GREAT COMMISSION: And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and know, I am with you always, even to the end of the earth.”Matthew28:18-20
