Pacific Northwest Campus
From its inception in 1980, Golden Gate's campus in the Northwest, located in Vancouver, Washington, has been an integral part of the Seminary's commitment to contextualized theological education. The Pacific Northwest Campus (PNWC) strives to combine a solid theological education with a strong ministry emphasis in order to fulfill Golden Gate's vision of shaping leaders who expand God's kingdom around the world.
There exists a highly cooperative relationship between the Seminary and the Northwest Baptist Convention which houses the campus. The curriculum offered at PNWC is identical to that of the other four campuses for the Master of Divinity and Master of Theological Studies degrees, and the Diploma in Theology. Classes are offered in a variety of theological disciplines and are taught at times which are convenient for students. The Association of Theological Schools, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, and the Washington Higher Education Coordinating Board have approved the PNWC to offer all requirements for the MDIV, MTS and DMin degrees.
The Northwest region, consisting of Oregon, Washington, and Northern Idaho, offers a breath-taking setting for practical ministry while pursuing quality theological training at the PNWC. Many students express their ministry in part- and full-time roles in churches and other related ministries.
The Pacific Northwest Campus Library houses over 15,000 books and a multimedia collection. Research computers with word processing and internet access are available as well. Students may request books from the other four GGBTS campus libraries and are encouraged to use the large electronic ebook collection and online databases. Cooperative agreements with local theological institutions - Western Seminary, Multnomah Bible Seminary, George Fox Evangelical Seminary, and Corban University School of Ministry allow PNWC students access to more than 400,000 volumes in total.
