Canadian Baptist Seminary

Christian leaders are marked by their spiritual character as well as their ministry competencies.

A Unique Seminary in a Unique Setting

About CBSWe love the church and seek to prepare effective leaders for ministry. We provide opportunity to study both in the classroom and/or via live-stream. We are very multi-ethnic and offer a rich educational experience for students from all over the world.

CBS is located on the campus of Trinity Western University in the Greater Vancouver area of British Columbia and a member of ACTS Seminaries. We take spiritual growth and leadership development very seriously and endeavor to infuse the practical across our entire curriculum.

Our costs are very reasonable when compared to other seminaries...especially in the USA. We are evangelical with a strong pietistic commitment to mentor our students and have full accreditation from the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) for all of our programs.

About Our Students

About CBS StudentsMen and women of all ages attend CBS from diverse backgrounds including business, education, law, medicine, and local church vocations. They complete a wide range of post high school educational programs which include university, technical college, Bible college and even some graduate school.

We understand adult learners. Our students come with life experiences that require balancing education with family and work. They desire a deeper walk with the Lord and an increased confidence in ministry.

CBS graduates serve as marriage and family therapists, pastors, Bible translators, missionaries, youth pastors and committed lay people within their church.

2020 Summit

2020 Summit

Calling the Next Generation
February 18-21, 2016

In partnership with the Baptist General Conference of Canada, CBS will host the bi-annual 2020 Summit. This 4-day weekend will challenge young adults to consider vocational ministry.

Held at the foot of the majestic Rocky Mountains in Canmore, Alberta and modeled after the historic “Urbana Conferences”, it provides opportunity to explore God's calling.

Regardless of one's sense of vocational direction, this event has proven to be life changing.

A former participant blogged, “The conference was filled with amazing worship times, testimonies, stories, good teaching and laughter. Even better the conference was filled with the presence of God. I was so aware of His palpable presence. It was clear to me that God was orchestrating our time together."
