About Briercrest College and Seminary

Briercrest College and Seminary is a community of rigorous learning that calls students to seek the kingdom of God, to be shaped profoundly by the Scriptures, and to be formed spiritually and intellectually for lives of service. Briercrest College and Seminary also operates Briercrest Christian Academy.

Our Mission

We have been preparing leaders for over 70 years. Our ministry emerged from a community of believers who valued the Word of God and wanted to provide Bible training. That commitment remains at the heart of what we do and why we exist. Our aim is to call students to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ, and our approach to reaching this goal is increasingly unique in the educational landscape. "…the Word of our God shall stand forever." Isaiah 40:8

Our Campus

We are situated in a close-knit community that is ideal for spiritual reflection yet offers one of the most extensively developed Christian education campuses in Canada. The centrepiece is the 2,400-seat Hildebrand Chapel; the largest church auditorium in the province. Facilities also include a 25,000-square foot library, nine student dormitories, a hotel, recently renovated dining hall, double-court gymnasium, ice rink, numerous sports fields, Subway restaurant, and two coffee shops.

I've gotten to know many wonderful people and learn from both teachers and students. Faculty members were very open to answering questions and clarifying expectations so that I could do the best work possible and learn as much as I could from them.
