Maritime Christian College
About Maritime Christian CollegeMaritime Christian College was established January 19, 1960 when the government of Prince Edward Island granted Letters Patent to the incorporators. This action was initiated by a group of individuals who were intensely interested in the Lord's work in the Canadian Maritimes.
The lack of a trained local gospel ministry had for years led to a dormant or declining situation in the churches in this area. For years, local young men and women went to the United States for Christian training and remained there to serve, leaving behind a void. Truly, M.C.C. was started with a great challenge in mind.
Maritime Christian College is located in Charlottetown, the capital of Prince Edward Island. For the first three decades, the college shared facilities with Central Christian Church on Kent Street. In the summer of 1993, the college purchased its own campus at 503 University Avenue, across from the University of Prince Edward Island. This location offers students exceptional facilities for its residence, classrooms, library, lounges, etc. The close proximity to the university allows M.C.C., P.E.I.'s only bible college, access to their facilities which include their library, cafeteria and sports facilities.
The restoration movement in Canada began over 175 years ago on this Island. As we move into the next century, the churches are showing signs of growth and enthusiasm. Maritime Christian College is happy to be part of this growth and hopefully can continue to play a part in this increase in the Lord's kingdom.
