The Seminary of The Christian Community in North America is now located in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) of Ontario, Canada and accepting applications for Fall 2020.

Our Toronto Based Programs:

Programs encompass: A Distance Learning Program; six month on-site programs with the themes “Knowing Christ” and “Walking with Christ”, an off-site mission year program, and a six month ordination preparation program in Europe and  Toronto.  Additionally, open courses continue to be offered to a wider public as  well as webinars for world-wide reach.

Canada provides the opportunity for North American and international students to study for six months without a study permit.  This makes study at the seminary possible for international students by specifically designing six month independent programs.  Each has been designed to stand alone and be complimented by student’s independent study.  This allows for students to return to their home country to engage in employment and family life while working on research, reflection and preparation of presentations which will then be shared at St. John’s gatherings in the US and other sites each year.

Acceptance into a program is by application and discussion between the student and seminary directors arriving at a mutual agreement.

DLP applications should be received before the August 17, 2020 deadline and applications for the on-site program should be received before the September 25, 2020 deadline.
