Bible college plans return to Peterborough

July 5, 2010

The Master's College and Seminary is expected to return to Peterborough after making an offer to purchase its original location where it had operated as the Eastern Pentecostal Bible College for 52 years. The college shut down in Peterborough in 2003 and moved to Toronto because its officials felt students needed access to more Pentecostal churches for training. Trent University leased the property in 2003 to handle the double cohort influx of high school students following the elimination of Grade 13 in Ontario, and left the property when its lease expired after 4 years. Most recently, a developer had a conditional deal to buy the property and convert it into a student residence for Trent, which wasn't interested in the proposal.
