ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

Embracing Challenge

Library from One of the Best Christian Universities in Canada

The transformative learning process at Living Word Bible College and Ministries is designed to help our students grow both in and out of the classroom. Each day is filled with opportunities to read God's word and experience hands-on learning. Our teachers create a safe and open setting, where they can guide students in exploring the world of the Bible, Biblical Archaeology, Theology, and Pastoral Ministry.  

Each week the students embark on a new topic/book of the Bible where they will focus for that week.  This enables an in-depth study of God's word each week. Our students have to come to expect nothing less from one of the premier Christian universities in Canada.
