Dr. Matt Olson | President Northland Ministries
Matt Olson is president of Northland Ministries, which is the umbrella organization that includes Northland International University and Northland Camp & Conference Center. Before coming to Northland in 2002, he pastored Tri-City Baptist Church in Westminster, Colorado, a church he planted “from scratch” by God’s grace in the fall of 1981. Since that time, Tri-City has assisted in planting at least a dozen other churches in the West. Dr. Olson received his BA and MA degrees from Bob Jones University and later completed his doctoral work at Northland International University. His passion is for local church ministry and for the full scope of the Great Commission. Along with church planting and missions, he has developed a special interest in helping young people as they prepare for ministry. Dr. Olson and his wife, Diane, have three children and three grandchildren.

Mr. Brent Belford | Director Northland Graduate School
Do you desire to remain faithful to the Word of God? Do you long to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ spread to the ends of the earth? Are you burdened to see others evidence faithfulness to the Scriptures? These questions may reveal the true nature of your priorities as a child of God. If your answer to these questions is affirmative, we desire to assist you in any way that we can!
Northland Graduate School exists to enhance the believer’s ability to fulfill the Great Commission for the glory of God. We desire to see our students grow in their ability to minister effectively in our world today. At Northland, you will be sharpened in your exegetical abilities and deepened in your understanding of theology. You will be encouraged to use your giftedness in a local assembly for the edification of others. Further, you will be challenged to abandon personal ambitions for the cause of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Northland Graduate School stands within a wonderful tradition of conservative theology and a firm commitment to the truths of God’s Word. In an age where the Word of God is undermined by both direct and subtle attacks, we are committed to defending and proclaiming it accurately to the world. If you desire to grow in your capacity to minister or to hone your ability to communicate the Word of God, please consider enrolling in one of our programs. We invite you to join us!
