Ministry

Think carefully about ministry and put it into practice.

Briercrest’s Ministry programs are designed to help students develop the character, biblical and theological grounding, and skills needed for lifelong ministry.

We encourage our students to be both rooted in the unchanging truth of Scripture and equipped for today’s rapidly-changing ministry contexts. With broad study and hands-on internships, students gain both the knowledge and practical experience they need to navigate ministry well.

Our graduates have entered many types of ministry careers and service roles, as well as pursued further study at Briercrest Seminary.

God wants to be together with us

At Christmas, people want to be together - enjoying a meal, making cookies, decorating the tree, or sipping hot chocolate by a fire. Just being together generates joy.

Reflections on 24 years of teaching at Briercrest
Posted: February 13, 2017

David Guretzki reflects on what has changed and what has remained the same throught his years of teaching at Briercrest.

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.
