Attendance at Newlife requires the involvement of your home church as it relates to providing a Letter of Recommendation and a Letter of Commissioning, which can be viewed here. Many of our students come from informal home-based churches. The link discusses how to secure a letter from a home church.
Please note – The Letter of Commissioning relates to applying for a missionary visa AFTER you arrive in the Philippines. You do NOT need to include the letter with this application.
Please answer the following questions as clearly and completely as possible. It is important to give thorough answers to these questions as this will be the primary basis for accepting or declining your application.
A vertical scroll bar will automatically appear allowing the field box to accept lengthy narrratives.
Please consider the following before submitting your application. We are a school with a very intense schedule and have demanding policies. Students who do not adjust to change easily or who are presently struggling with deep personal or emotional issues are likely to have difficulty in this environment. We are not staffed for dealing with critical personal or emotional issues. With this in mind, do you feel prepared to jump into an intense missionary midwifery training program with the long term goal of serving as a midwife on the mission field? *
Please detail how you plan to finance the tuition, school fees, airfare, etc: *
Note regarding this question; We recognize that paying for tuition is a walk of faith for applicants who are trusting God to meet their financial needs. We are committed to stand in faith with you. However, answering that you're going to just trust God and believe by faith the funds will be available doesn’t adequately answer this question.
It is important that you qualify your ability to finance your education at Newlife School. We need specific details regarding how you will pay for tuition and fees involved, whether it is sourced from your personal savings, financial assistance from relatives, bank loans, assistance from your home church, donor support, selling your house, etc. Sadly, we’ve had to deny some applicants for not providing specifics, so please discuss this issue in-depth with your parents (or spouse if married) as you answer this question.
We require character references from the following who will fill out the NISM - Reference Form link at the top of this page.
(A) Current Pastor, Church leader, or Mission director
(B) Teacher or Employer
(C) Friend or Family Member
Please note: the NISM - Reference Form is password protected. We will email a password code to the individuals you've identified above as your character references.
Please view our ‘Prerequisites’ link under the ‘Prospective Students’ tab.
Applicants will NOT be denied enrollment due to their inability to meet certain prerequisites prior to enrollment. And, the birth experiences listed on that page are viewed as beneficial for incoming students, but NOT completely mandatory. We are willing to discuss and explore alternative options with you.
We require all newly enrolled students to carry health insurance. Two companies we endorse are; Samaritan Ministry http://samaritanministries.org and Azimuth Insurance https://www.azimuthrisk.com
Newlife School requires each student to sign a Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk, Indemnity and Release upon arrival in the Philippines. This document serves to protect the interests of Newlife School and fully releases the school from any liability or claim that may arise while a student is enrolled.
Please initial here that you understand if accepted for enrollment a Waiver of Liability will be presented to you and will be discussed during your orientation upon arrival at our clinical facility in the Philippines. *
