Decades of History

Our education is as individual as you are. You choose your path:


Conventional Path

ACTS stands for Associated Canadian Theological Schools. As Trinity Western University's graduate school of theology, we are a partnership of four distinct Canadian seminaries working together to form and equip Christ-followers to serve in the church and the world.


We offer conventional master and doctorate degrees, as well as certificates and diplomas. In-person classes as well as a number of online, live-stream, modular, and other flexible study options make your ministry education more accessible.


Mentor Driven In-Context Path

CBTE stands for competency-based theological education. As North American leaders in CBTE, Northwest offers bachelor and master degrees that utilize hands-on learning, modular teaching, intensive mentoring, and rigorous assessment, completed in the student’s ministry context. We produce graduates of skill, knowledge, and character.

Global Leaders

Northwest is diverse. We educate ministry workers in North America, South America, and Korea offering programs in English, Korean, French, and Spanish.

About Northwest Seminary

Northwest is an innovative Seminary and College that understands the dynamics of learning in today’s society. Our degrees allow for in-person, online, and most importantly we believe in-context learning. Learning on the ministry site ensures skill, competency, and character round out academic rigor. Located in the beautiful Fraser Valley of British Columbia, our students are completing degrees from coast to coast in Canada, the USA, and as far away as South America and Korea.
