NewSpring College

NewSpring College exists to train and raise leaders for the local church.

What We've Learned

NewSpring Leadership College is a ministry training experience designed to raise up leaders for the local church.

We want to prepare students for ministry. Our goal is to prepare students for wherever God gives them an opportunity to serve.

No. Students will not receive traditional college credit for their time at NewSpring Leadership College. Accreditation would increase costs for students, and our desire is to raise up leaders free from the financial burden of loans and debt.

Students at NewSpring Leadership College participate in many different experiences. They attend classes to equip them with foundational knowledge about God, the Bible, the church, and leadership. Students work with specific areas of interest in order to give them hands-on experience in ministry. They receive mentoring in leadership through one-on-one coaching and leadership forums with active leaders in NewSpring Church.

Students are also part of community groups, which are designed to implement NewSpring’s core value that you can’t do life alone. Students are assigned gender-specific community groups groups that meet weekly in order to cultivate genuine community through connection, support, and accountability.

All students take classes in Christian beliefs, the Bible, leadership, and communication. We also offer ministry-specific tracks for those interested in student ministry, worship leading, and church leadership. To see a full list of classes and ministry tracks, go here.

NewSpring Leadership College is a two-year program (four semesters). The school year runs from the beginning of September through the end of April.​
