“The strengthening of competency in leadership through Horizon College & Seminary is going to be a key mandate going into the future. As an entire fellowship, we stand with you.”David Hazzard
Horizon has launched a whole new way to prepare Kingdom leaders to serve in the 21st century. Adopting a Competency-Based model of education (see the infographic on “Traditional Content-Based vs Competency-Based”), Horizon is pioneering a way to train Kingdom leaders that is innovative, relevant, practical, and distinct from any accredited Christian education program in Canada.
Horizon 8.0 is a student-centred approach to applied learning that assesses a student’s demonstration of specified competencies for Christian life and ministry. See further information below.
Horizon 8.0 launched in the Fall of 2015 – our 80th year of ministry. We invite you to watch this space as we continue to post information on our progress!
