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.

Get the right foundation as you launch into ministry. View our programs below.

    Why We Need Church in the Digital Age

    In our age of efficiency and distraction, church takes forever. But that’s exactly why we need it. Joel Houston, PhD, explains why Church should be slow, inefficient, and a little inconvenient—and in that way, completely irreplaceable.
