Briercrest College

A unique Christian college built on three pillars: a biblical/theological foundation, the formation of Christian life and service competencies, and reflection of these in arts, science, and marketplace learning. We are training young adults to seek the kingdom of God, to be shaped profoundly by the Scriptures, and to be formed spiritually and intellectually for lives of service.

Being on a worship team has been really good for me. It’s not something that I usually do, and I had to get used to it. It's really helped me grow in confidence to use the gifts God has given me, so its been encouraging in all areas of my life.

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.
