Kingswood University (NB, Canada)

Randy Boswell explores reasons for the recent name change in 2011 from Bethany Bible College to Kingswood University.  The institution was founded in Woodstock, New Brunswick as Holiness Bible Institute in 1945 by the Reformed Baptist Church of Canada.  The name changed in 1947 to Bethany Bible College with relocation to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.  The institution then moved to Sussex, British Columbia in 1965.  

Kingswood was formally accredited by New Brunswick in 1983 and accreditation was first granted in 1987 by the Association for Biblical Higher Education and reaffirmed in 2009.
