About Us



The vision of Providence is to be identified among Canada's foremost Christian universities as a learning community that transforms students into leaders of character, knowledge, and faith, to serve Christ in a changing world.


A Christian academic community in the evangelical tradition, Providence teaches people to grow in knowledge and character for leadership and service.


Our Values

Christ First

We affirm the essential doctrines of the Christian faith as held by evangelicals. These doctrines are defined in more detail in our Statement of Faith.

Diversity of Thought

We invite, encourage, and listen carefully to different voices and opinions, all in the service of strengthening and clarifying our faith.


We support and strengthen one another in study and spirit, because we learn and grow better together.


We recognize that faith is a journey. We encourage our students to explore and develop their faith perspective.

Academic Excellence

We hold all programs to rigorous academic standards.


Commentary on the Mission of Providence

  • Courses and programs are aimed at equipping you to be a difference-maker in the world.

  • Faculty are invested in your academic and spiritual growth.

  • A close-knit community of students, faculty, and staff encourages one another, grows together, and learns together.

Providence is an interdenominational institution and is the largest, self-standing Christian educational institution in Manitoba. It is governed by a board elected from a corporation that represents the supporters of the institution.The name Providence speaks of God's provision for the institution over its 90+ years of educating.


The University College, Mile Two Discipleship School, and Seminary are unique parts of Providence, each with small class sizes and experienced faculty committed to integrating faith and learning while helping develop your skills and character.

Providence University College will encourage your exploration of knowledge and faith and prepare you to be a difference-maker in the church, the professional world, and society at large. Our university-accredited Undergraduate and Graduate programs will elevate you into a career in your chosen field or serve as prerequisites for post-baccalaureate study.


Mile Two Discipleship School is an immersive, eight-month program that emphasizes biblical study, practical application and service, intentional community, and radical obedience to Jesus Christ. A winter trip to Israel is both a highlight of the course and opportunity to translate the study of scripture into a vibrant, out-of-classroom experience.


Providence Theological Seminary exists to serve the church, and we do so by cultivating leaders, creating resources, and enabling theological reflection. We offer degree programs through classroom instruction, modules, and online formats, and whether you are pursuing academic, church, counselling, or global ministries we will ensure you are both professionally and spiritually prepared for your career.
