North Park Seminary
North Park Theological Seminary is an educational institution, but it is also a community of students, faculty, staff and families who worship, eat, pray, work and play together. Through events such as weekly potlucks, retreats, chapel services, and Bible studies and activities such as Seminary basketball and softball teams, relationships are forged and strengthened. The Seminary Student Handbook provides detailed information on Seminary community life.

The connections are many and varied and provide mutual strength and encouragement.
