About North Central University
North Central University is a Christ-centered, Bible-based, Pentecostal school with a commitment to academic excellence that prepares students to fulfill biblical models of leadership and ministry throughout the world. Founded as a Bible school for ministerial training in 1930, NCU now has a much broader capacity. As a Christian liberal arts institution, it is still a place that offers excellent opportunities for ministerial training, but it also embraces a larger view of calling that includes educational preparation through more than 60 areas of study and service.
Located in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, North Central’s 12.5-acre, unique urban setting provides students with hands-on learning experiences and real-world career preparation as the city becomes their classroom. Not waiting for graduation to serve those around them, North Central students are making a difference in the world right now.
