Veritas College International – Graduate School

Mission Statement

To see church leaders worldwide prepared through higher education to glorify God by exercising strategic leadership; interpreting and applying the Bible in their own lives, their church ministries, and in their wider communities; and teaching others to do so also.

Institutional Goals

Students of Veritas College International worldwide will engage with:

  1. Competency Based Theological Education (CBTE) to prepare them as church leaders who glorify God in their lives and ministries
  2. Education that equips them to do theology themselves by interpreting Scripture responsibly and in depth, and applying biblical truths to their ministry context
  3. Online learning resources appropriate to their learning and research needs
  4. Faculty and other College leaders who demonstrate strategic leadership and mentor them in their own leadership development
  5. A learning community that motivates, challenges and leads them to develop and grow as integrated people who are functioning maturely in all relationships
  6. An institute of integrity constantly seeking excellence and effectiveness in education.

Achievement of these objectives is demonstrated in students’ attainment of degree competencies, including coursework, major projects, theses, and research papers.

  • be offered exclusively by distance education to people ministering within the VCI network of associated churches, ministries, and organizations
  • facilitate self-theologizing by equipping students to interpret Scripture in depth, analyze their own context, and apply biblical principles in order to communicate the message and facilitate change (Integrated Leadership Development)
  • be consistent with accredited degree requirements of North American higher education
