The Seminary of The Christian Community in North America is now located in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) of Ontario, Canada, offering a full complement of programs. Programs encompass: a Distance Learning Program, six month on-site programs, an off-site mission 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, a new format for connecting with a large audience at a distance, which have been added 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. Please email info@
