The Vancouver School of Theology (VST) is called to educate and form thoughtful, engaged, and generous Christian leaders. Its mandate includes providing offsite continuing educational opportunities to the broader community. Courses are offered annually at various locations in BC, and on occasion in places wider afield, offering opportunities for great lay education.
In 2020, United Churches of Langley will be a site for a series of courses offered to people in the Fraser Valley - evening public lectures and daytime workshops designed to get you thinking and acting for the good of God’s world.
These courses are taught by VST faculty who bring their academic expertise and passion for teaching directly to congregations. Registration is required, and a small fee covers the cost of the course. Courses are generally in a workshop format and include a free public lecture that all participants attend as part of their instruction.
