    Teaching and Research: Building a Drought-Resistant Christianity

    Grant Poettcker is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Briercrest College and Seminary. I see my role as a teacher-scholar as deeply important for the life of the church, because schools like Briercrest to help us remember our way into the future.

    A life-changing lecture?

    About a month ago I attended a public lecture by the controversial professor, psychologist, and YouTube sensation Jordan Peterson. He's on a tour promoting 12 Rules for Life: an Antidote to Chaos, a best-selling book of moral advice.

    Weird stuff we believe

    “Do we want to show people we have something different to offer by showing them we’re just like them?” Blayne Banting, Professor of Christian Ministry, wants the Canadian Church to be weird again. Here’s why you should, too.
