Christian Schools Facing Move: Diaconal Ministry Training Centre Seeks New Space


Larmondin, Leanne, Anglican Journal


Two Toronto Christian schools are facing changes as one prepares to leave its current location after selling its building and the other considers affiliation with a Prairie college.

The Centre for Christian Studies, the largest school in Canada for the training of diaconal ministers, has been plagued with financial trouble in recent years. In 1995, it rented out part of its building to an international French school to help escape its financial crisis. The building was bought by a Roman Catholic group, which will open a women's college and residence.

Wendy Hunt, program coordinator for the centre, said the school continues to run up a deficit, but the building sale will yield $2.3 million. It will have to vacate the building by July 1.

Ms. Hunt said the sale "gives us some cash and then we'll be trying to figure out how to use and invest it ... and how much program we'll carry."

The school continues to run three programs - two regional field-based and one Toronto-based.

The centre was formed in 1969 with the amalgamation of the United Church's Covenant College and the Anglican Women's Training College. Because it doesn't offer university degree programs, it doesn't receive government funding.
