Address by our 10th President

The Caribbean Nazarene College has evolved from the myopic, exclusive Bible School to be now the more inclusive, education provider in the Caribbean educational marketplace, committed to our mission “Quality, Holistic Higher Education in a Christian environment.”

“Quality, Holistic Higher Education in a Christian environment.”

In the year 1926, the then leaders of the Church of the Nazarene in the Caribbean, the exclusively English Field, took cognizance of the great need for an institution to prepare men and women for the pastoral ministry primarily, hence, the genesis of Nazarene Training College (NTC) which opened its doors in January 1951.  The curriculum having been expanded, but still pretty much exclusive to the theological track, the name changed from NTC to Caribbean Nazarene Theological College (CNTC).  The eventual inclusive diversification warranted the current name of the institution CNC.  This inclusiveness is now reflected in all facets of the colleges’ operations.  Diversification of this nature must continue to ensure the competitiveness of CNC.

CNC has been accredited by the Caribbean Evangelical Theological Association (CETA) since 1996, registered with the Ministry of Science, Technology and Tertiary Education (STTE) since 2006, is currently a candidate for accreditation by the Accreditation Council of Trinidad and Tobago (ACTT) and is aspiring to full university status.  Having stated all of the above, the theological emphasis of CNC has not been compromised. It is embedded in our mission statement, has been our ancient landmark, and shall be our major distinctive.

I implore you to come visit us on campus where nature at its best is realized.

God bless you.

Scoffield Eversley, Th.D.
President (Emeritus)
