President's Message

Healthy leadership has several layers. Vanguard College is led by the President, who is accountable to the Board of Directors. That Board is accountable to the conference of the Alberta and Northwest Territories District of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada who represent the churches of our District. In turn our District is accountable to the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada. We practice leadership through service and the safety of submission to others. Our Board of Directors is a collection of people who feel a passion for Vanguard College and come from a variety of occupational backgrounds. The Board is ultimately responsible for the ministry of this College. I want to thank them for serving and leading with excellence!
