Mission of Briercrest College and Seminary

Briercrest has been preparing leaders for over 80 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

The way Briercrest Seminary set up the distance learning was convenient for my life circumstances, and never hindered the amount of learning and community I would have experienced being on campus full time.
