Picture of North Park Seminary Cupola in Chicago

Community Life

Welcome to One of the Most Diverse Zip Codes in the Nation

The Seminary is located on the same campus as North Park University, in Chicago’s Albany Park and North Park neighborhoods.

The earliest archived photos show fields, dirt roads, and few houses. Chicago has changed dramatically since we moved into the neighborhood in the 1890s, and we’ve stayed right here, growing with the new opportunities that our vibrant city provides.

More than 40 languages are spoken in the homes and schools surrounding our campus. By engaging with our neighborhood and city, we build important connections with people from around the globe.

Serving Chicago

Whether you commute or live on campus, studying at North Park will immerse you in Chicago. You’ll walk through local neighborhoods, hop on buses and trains to explore Chicago, and participate in learning opportunities at churches and ministries across the city.

As a Seminary, we continue to examine the nature and practice of urban ministry, learning from the ways God moves in and through the city and its residents.
