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.

He must increase, but I must decrease

Failure will visit us all and from time to time and so will success. John the Baptist knew the excitement and elixir of seeing people get their lives right with God. But as Jesus' ministry gained momentum, John soon becoming yesterday's story.

Getting the chance to come together with a small group of believers to intensively study the Word while doing activities that we all have a passion for is really cool!
