On location at Home Church in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada.
We believe that “Everyone Needs Jesus and Everyone Needs a Home” and we believe that teaching of the Word of God is the basic foundation of a successful person’s life. We are passionate about the ongoing need to equip and train leaders to influence our world. We are a local church College that equips next generation leaders to lead in every sector of life, whether church, business, health, education or other sector of society - we are all called to lead. The classes are a combination of Theological and Leadership classes taught by a variety of Pastors and leaders from Home Church.
Our week consists of 3 full days (Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday) of teaching from 8:30 am until noon, and then practical ministry from 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm. Students are expected to be involved with either “HCYA” (young adults ministry) or “HCY” (youth ministry), a small group, and occasional evenings with “Heart for the Church” or Conferences. All students are involved with service teams at all our Sunday services whether at the Red Deer location or their home location. The College runs September to April.
Practical ministry is one of the unique things about Home Church Bible College. We are a local church College where each student is involved with our local church so they can learn to serve, grow and love what Jesus loves. Students are required to participate on Sunday service teams, a practical way to live what you learn in the College! Students from out of town will be involved with our Red Deer location while they are in Red Deer. Students who are from nearby, and are joining us for College from another church or location, are encouraged to serve, build and grow their local church on weekends.
There will be occasional times throughout the year, however, that all students will be expected to serve at Home Church for conferences and other special events.
The courses we offer build a foundation of biblical teachings and principles. Our goal is to see students become leaders and fulfill all that God has called them to be. Some subjects include:
