Student Stories

"Because Knox is known for its sound teaching tradition and supportive community, I believed it was the best school to provide me with a strong theological foundation which would allow me to prepare for advanced degree studies.”"

— Kiersty H. (K’16)

"I was attracted to Knox College because of its rich history of academic theological study and training. I have found a faculty with genuine pastoral concerns for the academic, spiritual, and pastoral growth of the students.”"

— Ian M. (K’16)

"I am deeply indebted to the College for the way that I was embraced as a mature student, and for the many ways that supporters of the work of Knox College assisted me in my journey toward ministry. In 2016, I am particularly grateful for the legacy of the men and women who blazed the trail that resulted in the ordination of women in our church fifty years ago. It is on their shoulders that I now stand as a minister of Word and Sacraments in The Presbyterian Church in Canada."

— Monica M. (K’15)

"Overall, my Knox experience is giving me all the skills, confidence, and spiritual strength I need to lead a congregation, wherever God chooses to send me."

— Emily W. (K’19)

"Five years at Knox encouraged me to think critically in my intellectual and faith worlds. Knox taught me that critical thinking does not end up with destruction, but with reconstruction."

— Jinbong C. (K'08)

"Through the ministry field placement that I had to do during the MDiv program, I got an opportunity to be with and minister to youth and young adults. Through that time and experience, God has given me a heart and vocation for the young generation of His church."

— David B. (K'14)

"In the residence, being surrounded by international students from different fields of study, faiths, and cultures was an education in itself, opening me to a better understanding of people from different cultures and religions. This understanding will play a big role in my calling to be a spiritual leader."

— Emily W. (K’19)
