GIVE TO CAREY
Your gift to CAREY projects builds the church and its leaders as we expect great things from God and attempt great things from God.
Dear Friends of Carey,
As we prepare to celebrate Carey Theological College’s 60th anniversary, I am thankful for the many years of support by you — our prayer partners, supporters and donors — who have so lovingly cared for what God is doing through Carey.
Carey began as a Christian student residence at the University of British Columbia in 1959 and established a graduate theological college in 1980. Since then Carey has trained thousands of leaders in Canada and around the world who serve as pastors, missionaries, and lay leaders in local churches today.
Global Theological Education
Carey supports pastoral and ministry leadership training to hundreds of students in Canada and in countries such as Rwanda, Kenya, D. R. Congo, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Peru, Argentina, Brazil, India and China. Our biblically-based accredited educational programs are typically half the cost of other seminaries and we provide significant bursaries to help students in developing countries.
Christian Student Residence at UBC
Our unique in-residence program enables 40 Canadian and international UBC students to experience Christian discipleship training while they earn their university degrees. Over 2,000 students have participated in our community living and leadership development residence program since 1959.
Thousands of UBC students are on the waiting list for residence each year. Encouraged by a leadership pledge of $3 million, Carey is building another student residence to house up to 85 students. For more than a decade, Carey has provided facilities for church activities and pastoral training programs during non-academic periods, Carey’s Building Campaign will expand our capacity to meet demand for this ministry.
If any of these three areas are important to you, we invite you to please consider a gift to Carey as we seek to train more workers for the harvest (Luke 10:2).
May God’s richest blessings be upon you.
Sincerely with the Grace of God,
Rev. Colin Godwin, PhD
