The Pastor Professor Exchange was created in 2018 as a way to connect churches to Redeemer University. We wanted to create a space for meaningful dialogue on campus and provide the opportunity for pastors and church leaders to hear from exceptional Christian scholars on relevant topics for the church today.
Post-pandemic, we look forward to having local pastors on campus and expanding to reach pastors across Canada and beyond virtually.Sign up for the next event
“The Pastor Professor Exchange takes me back to the days when I was in the classroom, but without the pressure! These events afford a wonderful opportunity to be blessed by professors who can share from their discipline while connecting with my ministry in a real way. And it's always great to spend time with my colleagues while be hosted so graciously by the staff at Redeemer University.”

“It's been wonderful for me as a local pastor to access the tremendous resources of the Redeemer faculty who are current with, and theologically reflective about, recent scholarship in various disciplines. The culture is shifting rapidly and church leaders need help interpreting the changes.”

“I have enjoyed meeting other pastors in the area at Pastor Professor Exchanges. The table conversations have been interesting. Of the several events I have attended the presentation by Kevin Flatt, Associate Professor of History, had me riveted. Anytime we can all laugh at jokes about our particular denominational foibles I feel more balanced!”
