History

Horizon College and Seminary originated as a small school known as Bethel Bible Institute, that George Hawtin began in Star City, Saskatchewan, in 1935. George Hawtin, the local pastor, moved the school to Avenue A and 29th Street Saskatoon in 1937. In 1945, the college became the property of The Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada. In 1947, the college came under the direction of the Saskatchewan District of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada. In 1962, its name was changed to Central Pentecostal College, under the joint sponsorship of the Manitoba-Northwestern Ontario and Saskatchewan Districts of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada. From 1963 to 1974, the college purchased the former Lutheran Theological Seminary building and some land just off 8th Street East. A new residence was erected in 1969 which can house seventy-two students. From 1974 to 1984 a 150-seat lecture theatre, an expanded library, and a new office complex were added to the existing education building. Central Pentecostal College was granted Affiliate College status by the University of Saskatchewan on July 1, 1983. On May 1, 2007, the college changed its name from Central Pentecostal College to Horizon College and Seminary as it began offering some graduate courses toward the ATS-accredited Master of Divinity, Master of Arts in Christian Studies, and Master of Arts in Theological Studies degree programs at Providence Theological Seminary.
