Discover The YTI Bellingham Center

The Bellingham Center provides a unique opportunity to deeply explore the Christian faith—and prepare for Christian ministry—right here in northwest Washington.

Bellingham, Washington, is home to YTI’s westernmost regional center. This city of 80,000+ is situated on Bellingham Bay about 90 miles north of Seattle and 50 miles south of Vancouver, B.C. Nestled below the cone of Mt. Baker in between North Cascades National Park and the San Juan Islands, Bellingham is a place of natural beauty with endless recreational opportunities. The city is also home to Western Washington University. Bellingham is situated in one of the least-religious states in America. According to a 2015 Gallup poll, only 24 percent of Washington residents attend any sort of weekly religious services, with 58 percent attending rarely or never.

YTI offers master’s-level and LCLI classes in Bellingham several times every year. All core M.A.T. classes are offered on a rotation, as well as a selection of elective courses upon demand. YTI classes, community lectures, and other events are hosted by churches in Bellingham.
