Briercrest Seminary

An innovative centre for graduate level ministry training, leadership development, and theological education in Canada. Our approach is both unique and intensive, allowing for meaningful and in-depth study in our modular format. Smaller classes allow for catalytic dialogue and learning and share a fundamental commitment to make biblical and theoretical truths practical and life-related.

I want to know the Bible better, and I just have a lot more knowledge than I’ve ever had before. How do you explain it? It just feels like manna falling from heaven. It’s just falling all around me and my hands are so full and overflowing.

I have benefited greatly from the Christ-centered learning and stimulating discussions both with students and professors. The way I preach and lead Christ's church has been positively influenced by my studies.
