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.

    Life after marking

    Read what Matthew Zantingh, PhD, has to say about the rhythms of teaching and the joys of intro-level English courses.

I have been incredibly blessed to be a part of a community that not only dared me to 'think brave thoughts' but also dared me to be a more authentic follower of Christ.
