Alumni Benefits

We have a motto at North Central; Your life. Our Mission. This means that it’s our purpose as a community to facilitate success in the life of every student. This commitment doesn’t end when you leave NCU. Those of us in the Office of Alumni Relations are dedicated to the proposition that your life is still our mission. We are constantly looking for ways to be a blessing and to serve our alumni community.

Who are our alumni? We consider all those who have attended North Central University or North Central Bible College for any length of time to be alumni of this community.

We are pleased to announce the following list of benefits for our alumni.

Debt Retirement (for ministry graduates)

North Central is pleased to announce that the AG Trust has set up a grant for graduates of AG schools that can assist them in the repayment of their student loans. The grant is specifically for alumni who are currently in or entering full-time ministry. Applicants must have graduated in 2007 or later. Click here to access the application.

Free Parking

Need a place to park downtown? As a courtesy to our alumni, NCU invites our alumni to park on campus during the weekends and evenings after 5:00 PM. We only ask that you call the Security office at 612.343.4445 to confirm parking availability and location.
 

Résumé and Cover Letter Review

Are you in transition between positions, or thinking about making a change? Contact our Career Services department. We will review your résumé and cover letter along with providing basic career counseling and complete access to Career Wire, our web-based career placement assistance program.

 

Library Access, Interlibrary Loan Services

Alumni have lifetime access to all T. J. Jones Library resources, and interlibrary loan services. Our library is a place where alumni may continue their personal and intellectual growth throughout their lives. Take advantage of our nationally-renowned Pentecostal Studies collection or bring your children to explore our excellent collection of children's literature.

Do you live outside of the Twin Cities? You may use our catalog online and have the books sent straight to your door. Search for any item at www.northcentral.edu/library. Once you find the book you are looking for, our staff will be happy to send it right to your doorstep. If you cannot find what you are looking for, alumni may use our interlibrary loan services, which connect the T. J. Jones Library to libraries around the country.

 

Alumni-Focused Communities

Want to connect with alumni in your field of expertise? This past year, alumni have begun to form online communities that gather around specific disciplines or common interests (for example Alumni in Business or the Biblical Studies Society). Many of these groups host events and activities that bless and connect community members. For a list of current groups, click here. Don't see the group you're looking for? Contact Simon Trautmann, Alumni Representative, MN.

 

Worship

Cultivating a spirit of worship through prayer and praise has always been central to our community. As lifetime members of this community, you have a standing invitation to join us in daily prayer, praise, and worship. Click here for a schedule of various prayer and worship activities.

Thanks to a generous donation, North Central can now bring this spirit of praise right into your home. In 2007, North Central became the owner of radio station 95.3 KNOF. After much prayer and discernment, we have partnered with Praise FM to provide programming that invites you and the broader community into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.

Praise FM is much more than a Christian radio station. Rather, it is a community of spirit-filled believers who truly extend a perpetual call to worship. Every half hour, Praise FM invites its listeners into Biblical patterns of worship. Each half hour includes: 

Call to Worship: a song which begins each half hour.

Proclamation: songs declaring the names and attributes of God.

Testimony: songs that share our response to the activity of God, and testify to the cross of Jesus Christ.

Vertical Response: songs directed to our God.

Horizontal Response: songs speaking to the worshipper as salt and light to end the half hour

Estate Planning (no charge for will and trust drafting)

It is always a good time to ensure that your final affairs are in order. However, the cost of creating a will or trust can often be prohibitive. Thankfully, this is not the case for NCU alumni. In partnership with AG Financial Services, NCU is able to provide will and trust drafting free of charge for every alumnus or alumna who includes a tithe (10%) donation in their will to NCU or other charity. Contact Wesley Book, Director of Planned Giving to learn more about the host of financial solutions we provide for alumni.
