Message from the Dean of the College

For education to be valuable, it must be life changing. At Briercrest we work to create a culture of spiritual and intellectual transformation, where students have rich, faith-building encounters with Scripture that anchor their lives on a sturdy theological foundation. We ensure students engage with the best ideas and thinkers by reading and reflecting upon the most critical texts in their field. We challenge them to seek the best ways to use their energy and gifts for service to the church and to their broader communities. We promote a Spirit-filled community life that seeks to love God and one another at the same time as students explore the deep questions of faith and human existence.

Briercrest has a long history of producing remarkable disciples who live for Christ in family life, in ministry, and in their careers. It is the whole Briercrest experience of learning, fellowship, and worship that produces resilient people who venture into the world with full hearts and active minds ready to tackle the challenges of their generation.
 

All of my professors really know the Bible and have had a huge impact on my life with knowing how to humbly engage the text and let it have weight on my soul.
