Candidates must be committed to historic Christian orthodoxy and be sympathetic to the traditions of the college and seminary. All employees agree to sign a doctrinal statement and code of conduct. Information about the school can be found at the institutional web site, www.briercrest.ca

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority. While Briercrest College and Seminary hires on the basis of merit, we are committed to the principle of equity in employment.

Along with teaching necessary counselling skills, our professors are also working to ensure we learn other significant and less obvious skills, such as confidence in our abilities, creative public speaking and a deep appreciation for God's Word.
