Canada Institute of Linguistics

Master of Arts in Translation of Scripture

Canada Institute of Linguistics, in partnership with Northwest Seminary, has begun piloting a new Master of Arts in Translation of Scripture (MATS). We have built this degree program from the ground up with a specific audience in mind, and a desire to better serve our international partners in the Bible translation movement.

At first glance, MATS resembles any other graduate degree program but a look ‘under the hood’ reveals something quite different: it has been designed with a strong commitment to competency-based pedagogy; it is delivered in partnership with Bible translation organizations; and it relies on team-based mentoring for delivery. Graduates from this program will have demonstrated mastery of the competencies required of a translation consultant recognized by the Forum of Bible Agencies International.


Northview Church

Love God. Love Others. Love the World.

At Northview our mission is to make disciples through the multiplication of healthy local churches. Northview longs to see people mature and increase in their love of God, His Word, and His world. In order to prepare the next generation of church leaders, we are developing a Leadership Development pipeline that will give those interested in pursuing vocational ministry an opportunity to participate within the church to develop their skills and help them discern where the Lord is calling them.

17:6 Network

Equipping leaders to develop and multiply life changing churches.

The 17:6 Network exists to turn the world upside down. Acts 17:6 ESV, “And when they could not find them, they dragged Jason and some of the brothers before the city authorities, shouting,
“These men who have turned the world upside down have come here also.”

We will accomplish this mission by creating, developing and operating training programs that develop leadership skills in the context of Biblical Perspective and Kingdom Values. We will work to recruit, train & deploy the next generation of leaders, while providing training and coaching for leaders currently on the field.


SEMBEQ provides leadership training for Fellowship Churches in Quebec. They have recently partnered with Northwest to provide Immerse leadership training for churches in their province.
