Students come to Kingswood University from here in Canada, the United States, and other parts of the world, to meet Christ in a profoundly personal and transforming way.

They become part of a vibrant community of faith, as they fully engage in university life that seeks to prepare them for future ministry. They grow deeper in their walk with the Master and emerge prepared for a lifetime of effective leadership in their respective areas of service.

Kingswood, a fully accredited educational institution affiliated with The Wesleyan Church, offers high-calibre programs of study uniquely focused on preparing men and women for Christian ministry. The Kingswood experience is a highly effective integration of faith and learning based on these three pillars:

  • Academic Excellence
  • Practical Ministry Experience
  • Intentional Spiritual Formation

Each of these tenets is a vital part of our mission—to form Christ-like servant leaders for global impact. We offer excellent academic programs and learning experiences that develop practical knowledge, research skills, and critical thinking for the development of a Christian worldview.

Kingswood University is the only Canadian institution in the The Wesleyan Church's higher education system which also includes Houghton College, Indiana Wesleyan University, Oklahoma Wesleyan University, and Southern Wesleyan University.
