Born and raised in the Netherlands, Bryan felt a call to preach the Gospel. He was looking for a place to prepare for ministry and to deepen his knowledge of the Scriptures. In 2013 he enrolled at Northpoint Bible College as a Pastoral Ministries major.
Why did you choose to attend Northpoint?
I chose to attend Northpoint because of the balance between a spiritual environment and a high academic standards.
What is your major?
I haven’t figured out yet what kind of tasks God has in store for me in the future, but ’Pastoral Ministry’ was the closest fit for me. ‘Pastoral Ministry’ doesn’t mean I only can become a pastor when I receive my degree. It gives me a lot of opportunities in the ministry.
Did you visit Northpoint before enrolling?
Visiting the campus wasn’t an option for me, because before attending Northpoint I lived in the Netherlands.
What are your goals after you graduate?
I want to preach the gospel in the Netherlands, in the United States, and to the ends of the earth. Only God knows, and with Him everything is possible.
Why should a prospective student choose Northpoint?
God’s Word encourages us to study the Bible, to grow in relationship with Jesus Christ, to live your life in focus of doing the Great Commission, and to teach others to do the same. All these things are included in your journey at Northpoint.
Any advice for future students?
Don’t think ‘too small’ about yourself and your future life. God is on a higher and different level of thinking then us as human beings. When you surrender to Him, He will lead you and give you the desires of your heart. He has a plan, and He will bring it to completion.
