Introduction

Students come to Kingswood University from all over Canada, the United States, and other parts of the world, to meet Christ in a profoundly personal and transforming way. They become part of a vibrant community of faith, as they fully engage in university life that seeks to prepare them for future ministry. In four short years, they grow deeper in their walk with the Master and emerge prepared for a lifetime of effective leadership in their respective areas of ministerial service. Kingswood University, a fully accredited university affiliated with The Wesleyan Church, offers high-caliber programs of study uniquely focused on preparing men and women for Christian ministry. The Kingswood University experience is a highly effective integration of faith and learning based on these three pillars:

Each of these pillars is a vital part of our mission—to form Christ-like servant leaders. We teach the Word. We offer excellent academic programs and learning experiences that develop practical knowledge, research skills, and critical thinking for independent study and the development of a Christian worldview. We deliver an unparalleled experience of exceptionable value—and at a cost lower than most other Christian ministry schools. As a community of passionate Christian teachers and learners – a community that believes in Jesus Christ, His Church, and the power of the Gospel – Kingswood University embraces our responsibility and opportunity to prepare eminently qualified spiritual leaders of godly character for excellent service in the Church.
