Educational Effectiveness

VST evaluates our educational effectiveness in a variety of ways: through course evaluations, through feedback from our denominational constituencies, through a cycle of program reviews, by evaluation of graduation and placement rates, in “exit interviews” with graduating students, and through both the Graduating Student (GSQ) and Alumni Questionnaires designed by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS).

I am awed by the way in which the current leadership at VST is focusing on the formation of church leaders. I not only have confidence in what VST is doing; I want to be a part of the future they are creating for those of us who love the Church.

In a church that is diminishing in size daily, it is easy to worry about its future. One need only to look at the leaders emerging from the Vancouver School of Theology to have worries dispelled. Thoughtful, well-informed, collegial, faith-filled and, perhaps most remarkable and welcome of all, joyful – these younger leaders remind us all that God has much, much more in store for the church of Jesus Christ!
