University description (as per official university website)
Canadian Pentecostal Seminary is located on the campus of Trinity Western University in Langley B.C. Canadian Pentecostal Seminary and Trinity Western University have partnered together to invest in tommorrow's leaders today. Our aim at Canadian Pentecostal Seminary is to train Godly servant leaders who have effective, strategic, and Spirit empowered ministry in Canada and around the world.
Our partnership with Trinity along with five other denominations known as ACTS, the Associated Canadian Theological Schools of Trinity Western University, allows us to share the resources of Trinity Western University, resources such as library, dining facilities, offices, admissions department, and registration departments, which is a tremendous asset to our seminary. This partnership is an important step forward for Pentecostals in Canada. CPS is the first Pentecostal seminary in Canadian history to grant theological degrees.
Our mission is to equip godly servant leaders for effective, strategic and empowered Christian ministry in Canada and around the world.
More Specifically CPS is Committed to Achieve the Following Goals:
To work within the framework of the Associated Canadian Theological Schools (ACTS) in order to provide graduate theological training in a multi-denominational setting for students preparing for Christian service.
To enrich the personal and spiritual life of students by deepening their devotion to Jesus Christ, their knowledge of God, and their empowerment in the Holy Spirit.
To prepare Pentecostal students to receive ministerial credentials with their respective denominations through providing courses and training in Pentecostal distinctive subjects that help the student work effectively in Pentecostal contexts.
To produce graduates who can competently address the current Canadian mosaic in order to penetrate it with the Gospel by providing courses that expose them to both Biblically sound and culturally relevant scholarship.
To encourage thinking, writing and speaking abilities that will enable the student to make a contribution to Evangelical scholarship by sharpening their skills in a mentoring environment.
To promote a more effective working relationship between the local church and the seminary by linking with local congregations to provide church based courses intended to strengthen lay leadership and provide ministerial training.
To provide Christian leaders with accessible, affordable and strategic continuing education opportunities that enable them to apply new insights and skills in their ministry situations by taking Seminary education to learning centers throughout Western Canada.
