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.

Before coming to Briercrest I didn’t know what I was going to do. I prayed about it, and God answered pretty clearly to me through lots of people that I should think about Bible school. I realized that I had a passion for worship ministry.

Briercrest has an environment like none I've ever experienced. It gives you endless opportunities to grow and endless opportunities to help others grow within the school and in the community.
