Two Alliance Northwest churches now offer accredited, "church-based", Bachelors and Masters programs. The vision is to prepare a new generation of vocationally-called leaders to local church service (neighborhoods) and international missions (the nations). The reality is that a student graduating from these programs can be field-ready and debt-free.

Reach Training Institute (RTI), launched by Salem Alliance Church in January of 2014. Lead Pastor Steve Fowler and Dean Steve Dangaren.


Bible Institute of Seattle (BIOS), launched by Snoqualmie Valley Alliance in the fall of 2015. Lead Pastor Monty Wright.


As educational partners with Crown College in Minnesota, RTI and BIOS are developing highly effective leaders through theological education and practical ministry experience for international and local kingdom service, at the lowest possible cost. They enable students to earn fully-accredited, four-year bachelors degrees in Christian Ministry or Global Studies in a cohort model that encourages learning and growth in a community-based environment.
