Issue Theme

We are excited to announce our 2023 volume, The Lord is Our Shepherd. This year’s theme—inspired by Psalm 23—will act as a plumbline for publication. We have all walked through the valley of the shadow of death at one point or another, but we have also seen our Great Shepherd prepare a table before us in the presence of our enemies. Our God is the Faithful Shepherd! To this end, the VJTM team would like to invite you to join the discussion and offer publication as an act of worship. Scholars, practitioners, pastors, and students can submit academic articles, book reviews, and creative submissions before May 26th, 2023. For more information and submission guidelines, visit


The VJTM is an open-access journal that publishes scholarly works relating to theology and applied ministry by students, scholars, and pastors/practitioners. It is based out of Vanguard College, an evangelical Bible college affiliated with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada (PAOC) in Edmonton, Alberta. Issues are peer-reviewed and published once a year.

We are excited about working with the Christian community to 

  • Provide students the opportunity to contribute their perspective to academic discussion
  • Encourage pastors and practitioners to engage in theological and scholarly discussion
  • Promote the integration of theological study with applied ministry experience
