Master Cohorts

Cohort Model

Shared Learning

Northpoint Bible College is launching numerous Master of Arts in Practical Theology Cohorts starting Fall 2022!

Our cohorts offer flexible, peer-to-peer learning for experienced ministry leaders who desire something more for their ministry. You will grow deeper so that you may expand His Kingdom wider. Cohorts may meet in person if you are local to the Haverhill campus or virtually through Zoom. In a shortened format, cohorts will meet in small groups, once a week once per week in the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters, for a total of 36-48 credit hours.

M.A. in Practical Theology Cohorts with concentrations on:

  • Pastoral Leadership
  • Preaching 
  • Spiritual Formation

Program Courses

Cohort Mentors

Each student will be assigned a ministry mentor for encouragement and synergetic innovation. Mentors will have a combination of advanced degrees and practical ministry experience they are willing to share in person, by phone, and email.

More Information:



The graduate program is devoted to the centrality of Scripture, the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and a Pentecostal viewpoint in theology, ministry, and life. Positive and encouraging interaction among peers and mentors creates an environment conducive to transformation, thus enabling the leaders to engage in effective Pentecostal ministry. Spiritual Formation, Pastoral Leadership, Preaching, and Church Planting & Revitalization are key aspects of the program.

What Is Your Graduate Transfer Policy?

An official transcript from a recognized, accredited graduate school must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar at the time of application. The transcript will be reviewed by the Office of the Chief Academic Officer. Transferred credits will be determined (1) by the student’s grade and (2) similarity to our curriculum. Only courses in which a grade of B or better was earned will be considered. No transfer credits will be considered for courses taken at another institution once the student has matriculated into Northpoint without express written permission from the Chief Academic Officer. A maximum of twelve credits may be transferred into the master’s program.
