Mission and Vision
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
Briercrest is a community of 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 are educating disciples to equip the Church and engage our world.
