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 was interning and volunteering at a lot of different places in the hopes of figuring out where my passions were. What I kept saying was that I wanted to help people and counselling fits that really well.
