About Tyndale Seminary

more about Tyndale's HistoryFounded as Toronto Bible Training School in 1894, Tyndale has been training Christian leaders for more than 100 years. Our original mission to provide Christian higher education in service of the church has remained constant throughout the years. The name Tyndale Seminary was chosen to honour William Tyndale, the early English reformer whose commitment to making the Scriptures available to all persons led him to undertake the first English translation of the Bible, at the cost of his own life.

With more than 600 students, Tyndale Seminary is one of Canada’s largest seminaries and is located in Toronto — Canada's largest city. Our size allows us to provide a unique and wide-ranging educational experience. Our diverse faculty have studied and taught around the world, bringing the perspective of global Christian ministry into the classroom.

One of the distinctives of Tyndale Seminary is the way in which a missional understanding of the church forms the foundation of our theological education.

Our students come from more than 30 different ethnocultural backgrounds and 40 different Christian traditions, and our alumni serve around the world in a wide variety of congregational, professional, organizational, international and public leadership roles.

We see theological education as Formation for Mission —the formation of leaders who participate in the mission of God in the world and faithfully engage culture with the Gospel. Our mission is integrated in every program we offer so that you are equipped to carry out the calling God has placed on your life.
