In 1924 Northpoint Bible College (Formerly Zion Bible College) was founded by Rev. Christine Gibson for the purpose of preparing men and women for Pentecostal ministry. The school started in East Providence, Rhode Island, and 1985 relocated to Barrington, Rhode Island. In 2008, the college was miraculously blessed with its current beautiful and historic 18 acre residential campus.

The dormitories are the students’ home, and the inhabitants of each dormitory become family. Each month the occupants of each dorm meet in the evening for a time of devotion. The Resident Directors minister to those in their care, helping each student to draw ever closer to God. There are also regular times for floor devotions, where a smaller unit of students get together to pray, learn and grow.
