Orchard Community Church offers the only church based program in San Diego North County that is offering the highest level accreditation in education and internship with Northwest University.
The Orchard School of Leadership
TO TRAIN THE NEXT GENERATION OF MINISTRY AND COMMUNITY LEADERS THROUGH EDUCATION AND MINISTRY EXPERIENCE.
Orchard School of Leadership exists to provide adults with affordable, practical and accredited education and ministry experience.
Through our partnership with Northwest University, Orchard School of Leadership will provide students with the very best of both the academic and practical ministry environments. Northwest University faculty and Orchard staff and leaders will speak into your life on a daily basis, implanting the education and skills that you need to fulfill God’s plan for you. Students in the Orchard School of Leadership will be able to be enrolled full-time or part-time in Northwest University (NU) taking online classes and eventually classes with a live instructor. Concurrent with your courses, you will serve as a student at a thriving church where you can apply your education to real-world needs within Orchard’s community, focusing on a rotating ministry schedule within the church, and working closely with Orchard Leadership.
This program is primarily for three types of people:
Those who know or think they might be called to full-time ministry and want to explore that calling.
Those that want to explore what it means to live out their faith in all aspects of their work
experience in partnership with the church.
Those who want an excellent internship program while at the same time fulfilling their general
education requirement needed to complete their bachelor’s degree at a university with minimal school debt.
