Carey Theological College invites applications for faculty positions at the Assistant Professor or Associate Professor level in the area of biblical studies (New or Old Testament) in a full-time capacity for September 1, 2022, for a three-year renewable term appointment.
Carey Theological College is not your normal everyday seminary. We’re making strides to change the way the most promising ministry leaders and pastors worldwide learn theological education free from financial and geographic barriers. You’ll be leading our students to discover a deeper sense of who they are in Christ and prepare them to plant new churches, to revive dying ones, to expand life-changing ministries around the world but most importantly, to make disciples. We’re looking for creative faculty members who will push the boundaries of education and raise the bar for student formation. We’re looking for leaders who can take a hold to what God is calling Carey and play a significant role in advancing our many facets, not only in our academic area but perhaps with our student residence, retreat centre, and/or partner engagement activities. If this excites you, we would love to hear from you.
Located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Carey Theological College is an Affiliate College of the University of British Columbia. Carey offers graduate-level theological education for pastors, missionaries, and other Christian workers, primarily through our Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees. Carey’s faculty members are engaged in program and curriculum development, instruction, student formation, research and publication, and service to the College and to the larger church. Over the last twenty years, Carey has developed a robust global curriculum delivered online and supported by a contextual mentorship program. Carey Theological College is an accredited evangelical seminary rooted in the Baptist tradition. Further information about Carey can be found at https://carey-edu.ca/
