I continue to appreciate your interest in the work of Providence University College and Theological Seminary. We could not do what we are called to do without the support of our broader Providence community of alumni, supporters, and friends.

I am now in my second year as your President and my passion to see people grow in knowledge and character for leadership and service has only grown. I have spent much of this past year getting to know you, the people of Providence. Thank you for your warm welcome and for your encouragement as we work toward this exciting mission.

It has been tremendous to return to campus this fall and to see the enthusiasm generated by our returning students. This is the first time in several years that we are able to operate without COVID restrictions. God has been faithful to sustain us through these past years and we cannot wait to see what He is going to do in us now as we embrace this next stage of His calling in our work.

As you read this report and consider the numbers and names, please appreciate that every dollar and every student represent God’s provision and calling. We are so grateful for your prayers, your participation, and your support.

I look forward to engaging you personally as the year continues and as we serve together.

Gratefully,

NIVERVILLE PARTNERSHIP

Providence signed a partnership with the Town of Niverville and is now making good use of its newly built Community Resource and Recreation Centre (CRRC). Beginning with the Fall 2021 athletics season, all home games for our Pilots varsity teams – volleyball, basketball and futsal – are hosted at the new, state-of-the-art CRRC facility which opened July 1, 2021.

DAY FOR TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION

Providence honoured September 30, 2021 as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Classes were cancelled, the flag was lowered at half-mast and employees and students received orange ribbons to help commemorate and remember our Canadian Indigenous history; to honour residential school survivors, their families, and communities.

LILLY GRANT

On December 14, 2021, Providence officially announced being given nearly $1M in grant money from Lilly Endowment Inc. The funds will be used to establish a Centre for On-Demand Education (CODE) that endeavours to serve pastors and church leaders with proven learning methodologies like competency base theological education, adult degree completion, and prior learning assessments.
