Our Statement of Mission
 
Ministry is the believer's response to God's loving initiative in Jesus Christ and is enacted through witnessing to Him. By baptism each Christian is called to participate in this ministry. Since the apostolic age there has been within the church a basic pattern of ordained ministry - bishop, priest and deacon. Within this context the ministry of the whole people of God, ordained and lay, is complementary and necessary, the one to the other, within the Christian community.

 

 

The task of the College, therefore, is threefold:
 
  • To prepare women and men for the ordained ministry within the church
 
  • To provide opportunities to better equip lay people for the exercise of their baptismal ministry
 
  • To encourage and facilitate the integration of knowledge, skills, and experience with personal faith in order to foster a growing spirituality.

 

 

 

Thus, through its programs and community life, Queen's College seeks to enable Christian men and women to grow in grace and in knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To achieve the goals of our Mission Statement our vision of Queens' College encompasses:
 

 

 
  • The development of an Anglican theological college within the Anglican Church of Canada in which community life is enhanced by liturgical life, with a residential model of learning for those in preparation for ordination
 
  • A desire for full accreditation with the Association of Theological Schools
 
  • A commitment to financial viability through continuing the work of The Queen's College Appeal, The Queen's College Foundation and Planned Giving
 
  • Responsible governance with respect for its relationships with the bishops and three dioceses of Newfoundland and Labrador
 
  • An effective model of administration that includes the effective deployment of personnel
 
  • A plan to promote Queen's College within the Anglican Church and in the community at large
 
  • The nurturing of student life through core values, spiritual development and the attaining of competencies for ministry through study and corporate life
 
  • A commitment to lifelong learning, either at the college or other satellite sites, for laity and clergy, which will provide tools for spiritual growth and development to address the missional needs of the Church
 
  • A commitment to build relationships through affiliations and partnerships with educational institutions such as Memorial University and other theological institutions
 
  • A continuing commitment to fostering ecumenical relationships
 
  • A willingness to engage creatively with the wider society and culture
