Nation -2- Nation Christian University (N2NCU) is a subsidiary of N2N Ministries, Harlingen, Texas.
Nation-2-Nation Christian University provides students with an education designed to prepare them for the work of Christian ministry.
Students will find that our courses are very applicable in their work and their lives as they respond to the call which God has for them. Thousands of students in the United States, and around the world, have used N2NCU to prepare for ministry and/or equip them for promotions in leadership positions in more than two dozen Christian denominations. Others have secured jobs or received promotions in the secular workplace after graduating from N2NCU.
The desire of the board, staff, and faculty of N2NCU is to equip each Christian, church, and church denomination for the call and purpose that God has for them.
“...Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations [...] Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” ~ Matthew 28:19-20 NLT
“Accreditation is a process by which an institution evaluates its educational activities, in whole or in part, and seeks an independent judgment to confirm that it achieves its mission and goals and is generally equal in quality to comparable institutions or specialized units.” (ABHE.org)
Our N2NCU professors are accomplished and well-educated leaders from multiple nations who have had their most important teachings filmed in the Nation-2-Nation film studios. Many of our professors are bishops of entire countries or geographical regions. Most hold doctoral or master’s degrees. Our community development instructors are Christian professionals, doctors, dentists, veterinarians and agriculturalists.
As a result, the N2NCU curriculum is undergirded by strong academic standards. It is designed to enable the student to reach his or her highest potential in ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ to His church and to non-Christians. Accreditation is an external evaluation of our peers which is intended to verify that we, as an educational institution, are appropriately meeting or exceeding our stated educational goals and objectives. Accreditation ensures that a school is offering a quality program.
N2NCU offers a Biblical education; granting degrees in Biblical Studies and in Ministry (of the Gospel of Jesus Christ). Therefore the peers of N2NCU are Christian Organizations and Associations of Christian Educators. Nation-2-Nation Christian University does not offer degrees in non-religious vocations.
N2NCU is accredited with Christian Accreditation International, a private Christian accrediting commission.
Nation-2-Nation Christian University is also a certified member of the Academic Council for Educational Accountability.
Our degrees are not meant to prepare people for secular employment, instead they are religious degrees that prepare students for service in ministry. These degrees are for ministry and might not be accepted by secular employers for jobs. It is also unlikely that institutions that hold recognized government accreditation will accept the credits for transfer.
However, various Christian universities and seminaries throughout the United States of America may accept transfer students, credits, and degrees from N2NCU. These may include institutions such as Covenant Theological Seminary (www.gocovenant.com), Christian Leadership Institute (www.cluonline.com), Vision International University (www.vision.edu) and others.
Degree program(s) of study offered by Nation-2-Nation Christian University have been declared exempt from the requirements for licensure under provisions of “Religious Exemption” found in Texas Education Code, Section 132.002(a)(2) as regulated by the Texas Workforce Commission. Exemption from licensure is not based upon any assessment of program quality under established licensing standards.
All degrees of Nation-2-Nation Christian University are of an ecclesiastical nature, and whether granted or conferred, are in the restricted area of religion with the special purpose of preparing persons to work in the area of religion, whether educational or ministerial.
In some states in the United States, non-government accredited degrees may not be used for job advancement or on resumes, business cards, job applications and letterheads. These states include (but are not necessarily limited to), Alabama, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Washington, and North Dakota.
Transferability of credits earned at Nation-2-Nation Christian University and transferred to another institution is at the discretion of the receiving institution. The degree programs of this seminary are designed solely for religious vocations.
N2NCU is not accredited by a U.S. Department of Education approved accrediting agency nor is it accredited by a government recognized accrediting agency. Government accreditation is not required for the religious vocations in which we train.
