The Associated Canadian Theological Schools of Trinity Western University (ACTS Seminaries) is a consortium of four seminaries - Canadian Baptist Seminary, MB Seminary, Northwest Seminary and Trinity Western Seminary - working together to provide a comprehensive and integrated theological education. Our purpose is to support and facilitate excellent theological education, Christian leadership training and the provision of resources for effective Christian ministry primarily at the graduate level. We do this through the creation and maintenance of effective joint academic programs among the four seminaries and Trinity Western University.
While ACTS Seminaries facilitates the academic curriculum, administrative infrastructure and courses delivery, the degree programs are granted conjointly by the individual seminaries and Trinity Western University. To accomplish this purpose, ACTS Seminaries is registered as a Society under the Societies Act of British Columbia (S.B.C. 2015, c. 18). Our CRA Charitable Status number is 77698 6697 RR0001.
The leadership team facilitates cooperation, collaboration and joint decision-making among the four seminaries.
