A Letter from the Dean

School of Graduate Studies at Summit Pacific College was founded in the fall 2015, and offers master’s level theological, ministerial and leadership studies. Currently we offer two distinctive certificate programs:

  • Studies in Pentecostal Theology

  • Non-Profit Organizational Leadership.

Studies in Pentecostal Theology focuses on theological and biblical perspectives within the Pentecostal movement in a pluralistic world. Awareness of the larger scholarly tradition and accepted standards of professional competence are combined with a practical emphasis on training articulate, godly servant leaders. This study program serves pastors, Bible and theology educators, church leaders and volunteers, global workers, as well as those who are seeking credentials within the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada.

Non-Profit Organizational Leadership is designed and directed by professionals working in the non-profit sector of Christian ministry. The focus is on administrative leadership principles for work in non-profit organizations and churches in Canadian or global work contexts.

These accredited programs serve as a platform for further master’s level studies in chosen field through our partner universities or elsewhere. Courses are taught as 20-hour intensive block modules. Students can attend classes from distance via internet as well. Currently Summit offers these courses at a reasonable rate to ensure affordability for all students. Any of the courses can also be taken as an audit for personal enrichment.
