Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Toronto - Tyndale University College & Seminary and the Association of Canadian Chinese Theological Education (ACCTE) signed a long-term agreement on January, 26, 2012. Dr. John Kao, Chairman of the Executive Board for the ACCTE and Dr. Gary V. Nelson, President and Vice Chancellor of Tyndale University College & Seminary signed the agreement at a public signing ceremony and celebration at Tyndale’s Ballyconnor Campus. The agreement continues to strengthen the commitment of Tyndale to the Canadian Chinese School of Theology at Tyndale Seminary’s (CCSTTS) mission to serve the Chinese Christian community by providing quality theological education in the Chinese language.

Tyndale’s long standing partnership with the Chinese community in Toronto began with the establishment of the Master of Divinity in Pastoral Chinese Ministry (PCM) in 1988. The PCM is an English language program focused on equipping people for ministry primarily in the Chinese community.

A vision of Dr. John Kao, the Canadian Chinese School of Theology was established in 2005. It has served over 65 theology students in the Chinese language with 25 students receiving graduate degrees in theology. The ACCTE established CCSTTS at Tyndale and has been an integral part of supporting the next generation of Chinese language church leaders.

Dr. Gary Nelson is looking forward to the future opportunities, “We are deeply honoured that the board of ACCTE has placed their trust in Tyndale. This renewed partnership represents an exciting moment in the next season between Tyndale and CCSTTS.”

By signing this agreement Tyndale University College & Seminary and the Association Canadian Chinese Theological Education have committed to supporting quality theological education in Toronto in the Chinese language for the foreseeable future.

Tyndale is a Christian university college and seminary that prepares leaders for work in the private, public, and not-for-profit sector, ministry, and the global mission of the Church. Tyndale offers fully accredited programs in a wide range of disciplines at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Undergraduate students may study towards a BEd, BA, and BRE degree or a certificate in Christian Studies. Graduate-level education includes a doctor of ministry degree; master's degrees in divinity, theological studies or theology; and a graduate diploma in Christian Studies, Missions or Spiritual Formation. Currently, there are almost 1,300 students representing over 40 denominations and 60 ethnic backgrounds and 9,500 alumni. Founded in 1894, Tyndale is strategically positioned in Toronto.
