The Association Free Lutheran Bible School and Seminary sits on a twenty-five acre hill-top campus among suburban homes in Plymouth, Minnesota. Plymouth was rated #1 in “America’s Best Places to Live 2008″ by Money magazine. Just fifteen minutes west of Downtown Minneapolis, two miles east of Interstate 494 and Hennepin County Road 9, and only one 1/2 miles west of U.S. Highway 169 and 36th Ave North, AFLBS overlooks beautiful Medicine Lake.
The Mississippi River winds through the metro. Lakes abound. Bikeways begin at the entrance to the campus and connect to a network so impressive that Bicycling Magazine in 2010 proclaimed Minneapolis to be “America’s Best Bike City”.
Students at the Bible school and seminary become servant leaders with Jesus’ heart for people. With one out of every four people in the Twin Cities either a first or second generation immigrant, it is an ideal setting to learn to share Jesus’ love with people that have come from almost every nation on earth.
The Minneapolis and St. Paul area is the largest center of population between Chicago (400 miles to the east) and Seattle (1,500 miles to the west). The Twin Cities serve as a hub for the five-state area, including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota, and South Dakota. A growing job market serves the AFLBS students and seminarians well.
