President's Blog

I recently I had the privilege of being a guest podcaster on the Global Missions Podcast from SEND International. In looking at Daniel, I shared 3 timeless missions principles of Old Testament figure who emerged as leaders with incredible influence.  I wanted to share this podcast with you as well.

  • Serve the Lord with energy

    As students arrive on campus this week lets welcome them with joy, introduce them to others with warmth, orientate them with enthusiasm, engage them during their time here at Briercrest with fervor, and pour God's Word into them with spiritual passio

  • Institutional Impact
