PLBC is pleased to welcome Dean Davey to the faculty as the new Vice President for Student Development. Dean will also serve as dean of men and director of the pastoral leadership and youth ministry majors. Dean is a husband, father and entrepreneur and comes to PLBC with 17 years of pastoral experience. He has also done mission work and trained Christian leaders internationally. He is a member of Northside Foursquare Church and a familiar face on campus as one of PLBC’s favourite adjunct professors. Dean has a BA from Briercrest, an MA from TWU and is completing a PhD in educational leadership at Biola University in California. Dean has a heart for our students and is eagerly looking forward to pastoring PLBC’S students, guiding the college’s student life and spiritual formation initiatives, and teaching classes. He hopes that his life and ministry experiences will be a guide to the upcoming generation of leaders. Dean will be in the office beginning July 1.
We are excited to announce that the Ministry of Advanced Education has granted PLBC the Educational Quality Assurance (EQA) seal of approval. The EQA designation is British Columbia’s brand for quality post-secondary education. The EQA designation is also used to promote B.C. as an education destination of choice and enables both domestic and international students to easily recognize institutions that meet or exceed quality assurance standards that government recognizes. PLBC’s Vice President for Academic Affairs, Ken Deeks, reports that after multiple meetings with the Ministry over the last two years to help develop the criteria for EQA designation for theological schools, PLBC has received certification. This means that PLBC’s past, present, and future students can be assured that PLBC meets or exceeds quality assurance standards for an educational institution.
