NAIITS Partner Schools

The mission of Acadia Divinity College is to equip Christian leaders for full-time and volunteer ministry in Canada and the world.

At Acadia we have a high view of the scriptures and view them as foundational to all we do in life and ministry. Therefore, we require all students to take courses in Biblical Studies and Theology during their program.  We believe that study of the scriptures at a very high level is an essential foundation for Christian leadership.

Sioux Falls Seminary is on the move, providing systems of theological education and integrative counseling that are affordable, accessible, relevant, and faithful.

We invite you to join us in mission.

Meachum School of Haymanot (MSH) exists to bring biblical, graduate-level theological education to African-American, ethnic minority and low-income communities in a contextualized and affordable manner. MSH is committed to theological education that is biblical, contextual and accessible: biblical as rooted in the Gospel, the sole lordship of the risen Jesus Christ and the authority of Scripture; contextual as having indigenous leadership and deploying contextualized pedagogical methods and content arising from the African-American and other diverse traditions; and accessible as offering theological education at an affordable cost located in under-resourced communities.

NAIITS “Down Under” and Whitley College

The mission of Whitley College is to equip men and women for leadership and service in the church and society. We have adopted the tag line: ‘Equipping leaders for a different world’. Our vision is for each person to make a contribution, within the College and in their life beyond university studies, towards a different world—and whilst on this journey, form lasting friendships and make the most of every opportunity.

The Baptist heritage of Whitley College stresses the integrity and freedom of each person, a respect for all and a challenge to all to contribute to a just, peaceful society. Baptist faith emphasises a personal response to God, as we understand the expression of God in Jesus Christ and in the witness of the Bible. While Baptists hold to this personal faith, they also uphold the religious freedom of all and seek to a respectful relationship with people of all faiths and of none.
