Area of Greatest Need

The College is grateful for all donations, including those designated for specific purposes. It is also particularly helpful to our mission and ministry if donations are designated for general use (or “area of greatest need”). This gives us the greatest level of flexibility and allows us to ensure that key areas of strategic and creative programming are funded. And that pressing areas of need can be addressed when they arise.

Facilities Renewal

The building of The Presbyterian College was constructed in 1962—it is a place and space where so many lives have been enriched and blessed. From the courtyard to the chapel to the classrooms to the library, students and staff have been formed for service in the church and in their wider communities. Of course buildings must be maintained and improved and repaired. We are grateful for your contributions to support facilities renewal.

Student Aid and Bursaries

Students are the heart and soul of The Presbyterian College, and always have been. These students come to us from around the globe, from various socio-economic backgrounds, and from various work experiences. Taking time out to study theology intensively involves a significant financial investment on their part. While our students finish their studies with lower levels of debt than is common, providing financial support to them is vital for their flourishing in studies and their being equipped for ministry.

Online and Digital Resources

More and more of the academic and ministry resources that students need for their theological studies are found in digital formats. And an increasing proportion of our programming is offered online each year. This requires an investment in newer technologies, in digital library resources, and in the equipping of faculty for online instruction (among other things!). Your financial support in this area means that The Presbyterian College can continue to form pastoral leaders in a new context of instruction and learning/

Faith and Work – Leadership Centre

We believe that most Christians live out their faith, and participate in God’s mission, through their everyday work. It is not through church programs that they make an impact for the way of Jesus, but through their work as nurses and engineers and software designers and receptionists and administrators. When you contribute financially to this area, you are helping us design and offer programs that will equip everyday Christians to pursue their work as a call from Christ.
