We live in a country and culture that places significant value on a good education. But in the course of the last century, we have rejected the place of the gospel and faith in God as our primary means to make sense of this world.
Religious belief has been banished from schools and we are now left to answer the big questions of life without reference to God. This human- centred approach to life continues to lead to all forms of brokenness. Our society needs to see and experience life reconnected with God!
Briercrest provides education that is Christ-centred, attentive to the Bible, and points students to the purposes of our God in the world. Our students learn to see life from God's point of view.
Jesus said, "You are the light of the world… let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:14,16 Our students and alumni are shining the light of Jesus while actively serving and leading in their local churches - they are the church through their life's journey here on earth!
We need partners in this work of helping students receive a solid foundation for a lifetime of effective service. Together we provide a place where God transforms lives. Your gifts enable more students to afford this Christ-centered education.

Briercrest College and Seminary, including Caronport High School, is a community of rigorous learning that calls students to seek the kingdom of God, to be shaped profoundly by the Scriptures, and to be formed spiritually and intellectually for lives of service.
We have been preparing leaders for over 70 years. Our ministry emerged from a community of believers who valued the Word of God and wanted to provide Bible training. That commitment remains at the heart of what we do and why we exist. Our aim is to call students to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ, and our approach to reaching this goal is increasingly unique in the educational landscape. "…the Word of our God shall stand forever." Isaiah 40:8
We are situated in a close-knit community that is ideal for spiritual reflection yet offers one of the most extensively developed Christian education campuses in Canada. The centrepiece is the 2,400-seat Hildebrand Chapel; the largest church auditorium in the province. Facilities also include a 25,000-square foot library, nine student dormitories, a hotel, recently renovated dining hall, double-court gymnasium, ice rink, numerous sports fields, Subway restaurant, and two coffee shops.
