Master of Theological Studies – Indigenous Studies
now at Tyndale

On Thursday November 15, 2012, Tyndale University College & Seminary and the North American Institute for Indigenous Theological Studies (NAIITS) signed a Memorandum of Agreement to offer a Master of Theological Studies-Indigenous Studies. This development was created in order to provide a culturally and pedagogically relevant opportunity for the program's participants who are likely to live and work in remote locations, contributing to the Indigenous world in their own ministry context. The eighteen required courses are offered in a variety of formats: intensive summer classes, online hybrid formation and wrap-around courses relating to an annual symposium. NAIITS co-founder and chair, Dr. Terry LeBlanc said about the development, “The NAIITS and Tyndale program is quite unique-it has been designed by the faculty of NAIITS-indigenous people using indigenous methodologies within a contemporary context. Eleven of the thirteen professors are Native North American men and women and nine of those have earned doctorates. Tyndale and NAIITS have designed the program to be delivered in a very flexible format so it can accommodate some of the unique situations and needs of Native North American and other indigenous people. ”

Introducing Christian Ministry Minors

Beginning in September 2013, Tyndale is excited to introduce five new Christian Ministry minors within the Bachelor of Arts programs. These include youth ministry, children’s ministry, pastoral ministry, music & worship ministry or intercultural ministry, to accompany any chosen major.  These new minors will provide a deeper study of the theory and practice of these five areas of ministry so that the student can gain expertise in specific ministerial areas of interest. “All of Christian life is ministry in some sense or the other. This gives the student in [for example] the Business program, the opportunity to focus in on one of five areas where they see themselves volunteering in the local church,” says Dr. Bradley Noel, Tyndale’s Director of Pentecostal Studies and Assistant Professor of Christian Ministries. This development is a step forward in the already high academic standards of Tyndale.
