SENATE

As Carey faculty and staff, we embrace the core values of William Carey. We want to be accessible to others, practical in our teaching, and transformational in our leadership.

We are committed to the growth and renewal of churches and ministries. We are convinced that God has spoken, and continues to speak, in the Scriptures. We teach the centrality of the Lordship of Jesus Christ. As the people of God, we are committed to a life of discipleship, to live under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and to embrace the local church as the body of Christ. We also appreciate our heritage as Baptists and value our affiliation with the Canadian Baptists of Western Canada.

 
The Senate is responsible for all academic matters and educational policies of Carey Theological College. Senators represent a number of constituencies: Board members, faculty, students and denominational leaders.
