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

Fundamentals

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.

Practicum

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.

Mobilization

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.
