SCHOOL OF GRADUATE STUDIES


WELCOME

Learning is a necessary and vital part of our life journey. Yet learning doesn't just happen accidentally; we need to plan for it and then execute those plans in order to learn. Summit's School of Graduate Studies exists to give this opportunity to execute your learning plans. We welcome students who are preparing themselves to Christian service and those who are already in Christian ministry. We also welcome those students who need these studies in order to fulfil educational requirements for credentialing with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada.

Our study program is designed to be flexible and affordable. It is focused on, but is not limited to, theological and biblical perspectives within the modern Pentecostal movement. Awareness of the larger scholarly tradition and accepted standards of professional competence are combined with a practical emphasis on training articulate, godly servant leaders. The program offers spiritual and intellectual reflection in a mentoring environment.

Being strongly committed to the future development of our curriculum, we currently offer courses from five core areas related to Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada credentials.These areas of study are Hermeneutics, Homiletics, Pentecostal Theology/Distinctives, Pentecostal History, and Pastoral Theology. Completion of these five courses will lead a student to receive a Graduate Certificate in Pentecostal Studies from Summit Pacific College. These credits are re-proved to be transferable to certain graduate level degree programs offered in Southeastern University (FL) and ACTS Seminaries (BC).

I invite you to read more and discover which modules are offered and when (see "Academic Calendar").

We are happy to give you more information and assist you in your educational questions. I welcome you to join others who have started this journey of learning.

In His service,
