Master’s Pentecostal Seminary, Canada’s first pentecostal graduate training institution (established in 1996 by the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada), is where pentecostals and non-pentecostals, pastors and non-pastors, 20-somethings and 60-somethings, gather for biblical and theological training. The seminary office is located in Agincourt Pentecostal Church, and I am on the pastoral staff there. The church setting reflects our conviction that the seminary should strengthen the church.
When students come our way, they benefit from the richness of pentecostal training done within the wider context of the evangelical setting of Tyndale. When we began in 1996, we affiliated with Tyndale Seminary in Toronto (Canada’s largest seminary). As a result of this partnership, our students are offered the best in pentecostal and evangelical scholarship, and all courses taken are accredited with the ATS (the primary accrediting institution for seminaries in North America).
We have also developed a two-year program that meets all of the educational requirements for credentials with the PAOC. The M.T.S. in Pentecostal Studies, an 18 course program, when combined with 2 additional practical ministry courses, prepares a student for ministry. We refer to this credential track as the M.T.S. in Pentecostal Studies (+2).
