You Are Welcome At VST

Vancouver School of Theology is called to educate
and form thoughtful, engaged and generous
Christian leaders.

A theological education at VST combines the love of scholarship, courage to take up the issues of our time and readiness to collaborate with our local and global neighbours for the good of God’s world. VST strives to cultivate a community where hospitality, generosity and imagination infuse our common life. Our graduates are thoughtful people, reflective about how to interact with the large challenges of our time on the basis of the deep resource of faith. They don’t rush to thin relevance, but linger with scripture, tradition and scholarship to expand our common imaginative repertoire. Our students learn together with and from our Indigenous partners and those of other world religions.
