Our mission is to create a learning community that provides programs and services that equip Pentecostal leaders for ministry.

We believe that learning should engage your heart, your spirit and your intellect, and we invite you to be part of a dynamic learning community that is committed to renewing your mind, renovating your heart, and readying you for ministry leadership.

As you are steeped in theological and biblical truth, exposed to a Christian worldview, and immersed in practical ministry formation, you will experience a transformation in your beliefs, attitudes, decisions and actions that will prepare you for life and ministry.

A hallmark of MCS’s commitment to academic excellence is its experiential learning approach. With guidance from our expert faculty, you will engage in authentic, memorable learning experiences—inside and outside of the classroom setting. This intentional learning process is designed to produce students who are better able to think critically and act skillfully—”reflective practitioners” who are ready to serve as pastors and leaders.

Guiding Principles

Our approach to learning is characterized by theological education and ministry training that is:

Formational

Encouraging the development of Christ-like character and spiritual, theological, and practical formation through an integrated program of mentoring, ministry, and participation in Christian community.

Biblical

Based on sound and thorough biblical studies as foundational to the formation of an integrated worldview, personal spiritual growth, healthy theological reflection, and application of biblical principles and paradigms to life and ministry.

Practical

Equipping students with practical skills essential to leadership and ministry in the church and in the world.

Missional

Preparing students to carry out the Great Commission through culturally relevant mission and ministry in Canadian and global contexts.

Pentecostal

Establishing a biblical and theological foundation for Pentecostal identity and ministry and nurturing vibrant Pentecostal spirituality and practice.

Institutional Goals

To help the student become knowledgeable in the Bible, God’s inerrant Word, the infallible rule for personal and corporate faith and conduct, and competent in its interpretation, proclamation, and application.

To help the student understand the biblical foundation of historical development of Christian doctrine and practice as a basis for contemporary holy living.

To help the student clarify the call of God as he/she seeks God’s will for life and ministry, to provide him/her with a knowledge of the ministries within the PAOC and the community in general, and to equip the student with the necessary skills to function within these ministries.

To help the student apply a Christian worldview to disciplines relating to human thought and behaviour, and value the biblical ethic as always superior to other religious and secular humanistic ethics, thereby motivating the student toward holiness.

To help the student understand the biblical basis and historical development of our Pentecostal heritage, distinctives, and mission, emphasizing the person and ministry of the Holy Spirit, and cultivate an attitude and practice of loyalty under God to the PAOC.
