Briercrest College

A unique Christian college built on three pillars: a biblical/theological foundation, the formation of Christian life and service competencies, and reflection of these in arts, science, and marketplace learning. We are training young adults to seek the kingdom of God, to be shaped profoundly by the Scriptures, and to be formed spiritually and intellectually for lives of service.

I was on the JV volleyball team this year and one of the cool things was how close our team became in such a short time. We had this cool little community and we got to really pour into one another and share our testimonies and be vulnerable.

The most satisfying thing about Briercrest is that I can study in an environment that encourages me in a healthy relationship with God and others. It gives me a chance to make friendships and relationships with those who have the same values as me.
