Vision: 
Regent College is an evangelical, international graduate school of Christian studies based in Vancouver and affiliated with the University of British Columbia, Canada’s third largest university. It was founded in 1968 as the first graduate school of theology in North America to make education of the laity its central focus. Regent College is a place of academic rigour, cultural engagement, and vibrant faith that transforms intellect, imagination, and character. Here, people from around the world are inspired and enriched with a deep and practical Christian faith extending into all spheres of life and enabling them to live more thoughtfully in varied vocations in the church and the world.
Describe the accredited programs in cross-cultural ministries or missions offered by your organization: 
Within Regent College's degree programs there is opportunity for students to chose a concentration in Mission Studies. Mission today involves the whole church bringing the whole gospel to the whole world. Holistic mission undertakes the work of evangelism, church-planting, social concern and the work of social transformation as the people of God pray and work so that more of God's shalom and kingdom will be manifest in our beautiful but deeply broken, alienated and divided world. The Mission Studies concentration promotes this vision of mission within an educational community that is missiological in intent (in all the disciplines), international in composition and located in the multi-cultural environment of Vancouver and its place in the Pacific Rim. Typical courses include: Introduction to Mission Studies, Theology of Mission, World Religions, Empowering the Church for Re-Evangelization, Christian Apologetics, History of Missions, Urban Anthropology and Mission.
