North African Theological Seminary
Local leaders are bringing gospel access to unreached communities.
Rooted in the truth of God’s Word and in partnership with local churches, our graduates are fulfilling the Great Commission—making disciples of all nations.
At our Church Planting Bible School (formerly NEATS) we train local leaders to establish healthy churches. These leaders expand the reach of the gospel to people who have never had the opportunity to choose Jesus.
We believe this generation must take the gospel farther than the one before, and the good news is they’re willing.
Our training process
Biblical education meets church leadership experience
Students begin by establishing a solid Biblical foundation. This includes training in fundamental theology, Biblical literacy, missions strategy and leadership development—specific to their role as a church planter.
Under the supervision of our teaching team, students gain practical experience in a local ministry context. This includes leading small group Bible studies, sharing the gospel, and preaching.
Equipped to lead, graduates are sent out by their local churches. Empower One leadership and local pastors oversee these new church planters as they expand the reach of the gospel to people who don’t know Jesus.

Training up a generation requires the very best
Meet Yunan, a graduate and disciple-maker.
War tumbled Ismail. He grew up in a Muslim home. A man named Philip told him about Jesus, and Ismail believed. He said he had no idea what to do, and before Philip could disciple him, war tumbled Ismail to a refugee camp in Kenya.
