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.

    How Do Pastors Bounce Back from Challenges?

    Resilience is a process that depends on a lot of factors. One of our counselling faculty reflects on what her research reveals about pastoral resilience in the face of ministry challenges.

My experience at Briercrest exceeded getting an education. My heart and mind were transformed as I met God in the classrooms, the dorms, and chapel. I never anticipated seeing God so clearly through my studies.
