Program 1

Believing that the sociological trend toward urbanization will continue, NLTS equips servant leaders of Jesus to minister to a diverse, multi-cultural, urbanizing world. The method of equipping is through nontraditional education, which emphasizes a practical, "hands-on" approach to an urban society. This method of education us guided by, and unified in, the person of Jesus. Students receive the highest quality of in class education and the best possible of practical and applicable experience working with the homeless, addicted, abused, and outcast of society.
