The Master of Divinity (Professional) Pentecostal Studies Track
In 2007 the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE) approved an agreement between Horizon Seminary and Providence Theological Seminary. This agreement created a Pentecostal Studies track within Providence's M. Div. (Professional) program. This track provides an opportunity for men and women who worship and minister in Pentecostal settings to complete a M. Div. specific to their current setting.
In cooperation with Horizon Pentecostal Seminary in Saskatoon, Providence offers a Master of Divinity (Professional) program with a Pentecostal Studies track. The foundational courses are offered by Providence, with Horizon Pentecostal Seminary providing the Pentecostal distinctive courses (28 credit hours).
Students who graduate from the Pentecostal Studies track will receive the Master of Divinity degree from Providence and a Diploma in Theology from Horizon Pentecostal Seminary. This diploma will qualify the graduate to apply to The Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada for ministerial credentials leading toward ordination.
Providence Theological Seminary offers the foundational M.Div. curriculum (21 courses for 62 hours) and Horizon Pentecostal Seminary offers the Pentecostal distinctive courses and supervised ministry experience (10 courses for 28 credit hours).
Following are the distinctive courses that make up the Pentecostal Studies Track:
- Pentecostal Spirituality (3 hrs)
- Introduction to Pentecostal Theology (3 hrs)
- Supervised Ministry Experience I (2 hrs)
- Supervised Ministry Experience 2 (2 hrs)
- Origins and Development of Global Pentecostalism (3 hrs)
- Pentecostal Perspectives on Preaching (3 hrs)
- Pentecostals and Evangelism (3 hrs)
- Pentecostal Theology of Luke and Paul (3 hrs)
- Pastoral Theology: Pentecostal Perspectives (3 hrs)

Schedule for Pentecostal Distinctive Courses
Most of the Pentecostal Studies distinctive courses are offered in a one-week module format either at Providence, at Horizon, or other approved locations. For more information on Pentecostal Distinctive courses, please contact Dr. Ron Kadyschuk, Dean of Horizon Seminary.
