40 Years Old!
2023-24 is a big year for KST. It marks our 40th birthday!
King’s School of Theology began life as a full-time residential college, serving the Salt and Light (S&L) network of churches. In 1983 the first cohort gathered near Vancouver. Over the years over 1230 people have studied with King’s Theology – people who were trained in God’s word, for lives dedicated to his purposes. They have gone on to all sorts of things across the world. That is quite a legacy, and we think it deserves celebrating.
As part of a series of celebrations, we commissioned this ‘student stories’ project. We have gathered stories of alumni from across the 40 years, asking them what studying theology at KBC/KBCTC/KST meant to them, and how it has shaped them over the years.
The stories are wonderful. They represent people who have been ‘infected’ for God’s Kingdom, who love His Word, and who are serving him in a myriad of ways. From those running housing projects to leading churches, from working in NHS hospitals to becoming a foster carer, studying theology equips God’s people for all of life.
We will post one or two stories every week. We hope they provide encouragement as you look back at your own journey with God.
If you would like to explore studying with us, come along to a free online Taster event. It’s a great way to find out what we do and why!
 KST has been known under various names over the years: – King’s Bible College, King’s Bible College and Training Centre and King’s Theological College when it was a full-time programme; King’s School of Theology in its part time form. Each transition was marked by changes in personnel, location and structure, but also consistency. The core vision to train people in the Word of God, in a worshiping and active community, has remained the same.
