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.
