Do you know God’s purpose for your life? Are you interested in powerful Bible truths that will develop your potential and empower your future? Do you want to make a lasting difference in the world? If you’re looking for answers to these questions, you’re looking for EMPOWER. New Brighton Christian Assembly (NBCA) is passionate about helping you find and follow the call of God. We designed EMPOWER – NBCA School of Ministry with you in mind. Our purpose is to empower your MIND, your MISSION, and your MINISTRY with a spirit of faith and excellence. We believe God has great plans for you and we want to help you get there. Live EMPOWERED.


EMPOWER begins as a 9 month intense season of discovery and discipleship to help launch you into your calling. You will identify your life purpose and develop your leadership potential for the glory of God. EMPOWER is more than just classes. It is a Bible-based education to transform your thinking and shape your future. Whether God leads you into ministry or in another direction, EMPOWER classes and programs will equip you to confidently follow God’s plan for your life. Live EMPOWERED.

You also have the opportunity to take advantage of our night school program to continue learning and growing without affecting your daytime commitments. The evening program is not for those seeking full-time ministry. It is designed to deepen your biblical understanding and life application, along with equipping you to serve more effectively in your church. Build new friendships, increase your faith, and grow as a leader.



“Discover your call”
The First Year Program focuses on strengthening faith and finding direction for life. Students will build intimacy with God, and will become empowered to live out their calling and purpose.

“Own your call”
The Second Year Program is for those seeking training toward vocational ministry. Students will receive preparation for ministry and will graduate with an Associate Degree in Ministry from the IFCA Bible College.

“Live your call”
Second year graduates are invited to participate in a third year Leadership Academy. This consists of monthly meetings for continuing leadership growth and networking.
