Student Life


Mokahum is located on the Leech Lake Reservation in northern Minnesota. The beautiful 30-acre wooded campus is just outside the town of Cass Lake and is only a 15-minute drive from Bemidji, the regional hub for education, entertainment, shopping, healthcare, and recreation.

The main administration building houses offices, classrooms, library, laundry facilities, kitchen, and a dining/lounge area with a fireplace and pool table. Dorms for male and female students are located nearby.


Outdoor basketball and volleyball courts are available to students on campus, as well as a fire pit that makes a good spot for cookouts and worship times. Students may have opportunities to practice traditional Native American skills like hunting, fishing and maple sugaring. Our sister school, Oak Hills Christian College, offers Mokahum students access to the library, computer lab, fitness facilities and intramural sports including flag football, ultimate Frisbee and floor hockey.

Community Life & Standards

Our small enrollment and staff make Mokahum a close-knit community. All students share cleaning and maintenance duties, and on-campus students share responsibility for budgeting and meal preparation in their dorms. Chapel services allow us to come together in worship. Studying, praying, outreach, working, eating, and having fun together give ample opportunities to form deep relationships that will last a lifetime. These bonds are an integral part of the discipleship process, as students encourage and help one another to grow in their walk with Jesus Christ.

Mokahum’s three objectives of biblical education, ministry training, and life skills are the foundation for each student’s education and experience at Mokahum Ministry Center. Our standard of conduct is based on the premise that all individuals on our campus are committed to these objectives for themselves and for other students.

We hold to the Bible as our authoritative guide for faith and practice. As followers of Jesus Christ, we are responsible for living in a way that reflects His character and priorities. At Mokahum Ministry Center we are dedicated to coming alongside each student and facilitating spiritual growth. We seek to encourage one another to develop in Christlikeness, and we teach and confront in love when necessary.
