Spiritual Formation

BCA is situated in a Christian community that provides a positive environment and ample opportunity for spiritual growth. Students and visitors often remark that there's something unique about the atmosphere in Caronport.

 

Atmosphere

Worship

A common desire exists among staff and students to integrate all of life into a chorus of worship to God.

Small groups

Students have the opportunity participate in Bible studies, prayer meetings, or accountability groups that create a rich and refreshing community atmosphere.

Student residence

Lifelong friendships are forged and spirituality is nourished within our student dorms.

Community

Students and staff at BCA, along with Briercrest College and Seminary, form a community of disciples who seek to motivate each other to deeper levels of life in Christ.

Environment

There's something surprising about the Prairies. Enjoy God and his creation through an endless horizon, spectacular sunsets, and the northern lights.

 

Church and Chapel

All BCA dorm students are required to attend Sunday worship services. Corporate times of worship and praise are a vital part of the Christian experience. This is where the body comes together to build itself up and seek instruction from Christ, its head.

Students have several opportunities to participate in local church youth groups. Participation is voluntary, and many students are eager to attend these weekly events.

Chapel

Christian Ethics classes and chapel services are an integral part of a student's spiritual growth and overall experience at BCA. Worship music, testimonies, guest speakers, and drama skits are a few common elements of chapel. Chapel services are designed to be uplifting, inspiring, and fun.

Periodically, BCA students participate in "Mosaic Chapels," times when the student bodies of each of the Briercrest schools join together for instruction and worship.

Youth Quake

Every February, we heat things up on our campus as we welcome thousands of high school students and youth workers from across Canada and the U.S. for an intense weekend of worship, speakers, concerts, entertainment, competitions, training, and more.

Outreach

Mission to Mexico

Every year, about two dozen BCA students take a road trip to Mexico. They work in local villages and learn what it means to live for Jesus in the context of poverty. The trip is sponsored and run by Caronport Community Church. If you would like information about next year's Mission to Mexico, contact Pastor Rick Klippenstein at 306-756-3350 or rklippenstein@briercrest.ca

Soul's Harbour

Soul's Harbour, which includes a clothing store, a used furniture store, and a soup kitchen, is a ministry to the poor in the city of Regina. Once a week, teams of BCA and Briercrest College students serve supper at the soup kitchen and host games after the supper hour. Team members have opportunity to connect and pray with the people who are regulars at Soul's Harbour and to communicate the love of Jesus through their actions and words.

Tour Choir

Tour Choir performs a musical/dramatic production around Easter themes every year. Participants have found this to be a significant catalyst for spiritual growth.

 

I really admire how much Caronport has to offer. For a small town school, BCA has so many opportunities involving sports, performing arts, etc. The community also provides so much fellowship, which really helps students grow in their faith.
