Higher Education Spotlight – Fall 2019
Nestled among the Gulf Islands of British Columbia’s west coast, Capernwray Harbour Bible Centre on Thetis Island offers students and guests a unique learning experience!
From September through to May, Capernwray Harbour runs a One Year Bible School programme where sound, practical Bible teaching focusing on both the Old and New Testament scriptures in which God reveals the indwelling, resurrected Christ as the Christian Life is given. Students gain an experiential knowledge of Christ and how His presence practically applies to daily living.
Through classroom studies, tutorial, dialogue-based small group studies, and summary journals, students have opportunities to share from the written Word what God is teaching them & how He is working in their lives. Many outreach opportunities located in surrounding communities and cities are available for students to participate in as well as international, short-term missions trips.
Capernwray Harbour welcomes people of all denominational backgrounds and nationalities. The student body of approximately 100 students joins the full-time staff to create a community intent on knowing Jesus Christ as LIFE. The desire of every staff member at Capernwray Harbour is to prepare each student for “full time Christian service, regardless of occupation”.
During the summer months, Capernwray Harbour makes its facilities available for various groups as a full-service venue to hold their conference or retreat. In addition, Capernwray Harbour hosts Ladies’ & Mens’ Conference Weekends, Family Holiday Bible Weeks as well as youth weekends where men, women, youth & children can be encouraged in their walk with the Lord Jesus amidst an island, holiday setting.

Millar College of the Bible exists to develop passionate, relevant servants of Jesus Christ who are shaped by the entire Scriptures.
Millar’s desire is to see people have their entire lives changed by God through His Word. By teaching Life Skills, Relationships, Character Development, and Bible Knowledge, we hope to see the whole person changed to become more like Jesus.
Our main program at Millar encompasses teaching all 66 books of the Bible. Alongside teaching through the Old and New Testaments, this program includes Church History, Theology, Apologetics, Missions, Evangelism, and more.
We believe that education reaches so much further than the classroom. At Millar, we seek to have our students grow in Christ-centred community. All of our students are paired with a mentor who intentionally walks alongside them throughout the year. Also, each student lives in dorm and is part of a Hall or Community Life Group that meets together weekly.
Millar has two beautiful campuses in Western Canada. One is in Pambrun, Saskatchewan, and one is in Tappen, BC at Sunnybrae Bible Camp. Our Pambrun Campus offers many opportunities in the areas of sports, fine arts, and biblical languages. Our Sunnybrae Campus offers sports, worship arts, and Outdoor Edge, an elective involving hiking, canoe trips, and rock climbing.
Inspired by faith, achieved through academic excellence. Your degree from Ambrose University goes beyond textbook learning by integrating faith into all aspects of the University experience.
Your experience at university should be about more than earning your degree. At Ambrose, we believe in developing the whole person, which includes academics, personal growth and spiritual growth. That means you will learn from, and with, people who value your values, and can help you shine them more brightly into your work, family, and community.
Classes at Ambrose are small enough that professors know your name and welcome your questions and ideas both inside and outside of class. In this close, connected learning environment, professors become mentors who can lend you vital support as you learn and explore options for your future. It‘s a quality of education that you just won‘t get at a larger university.
Our programs are rigorous, relevant and accredited for today‘s most demanding careers. Whether you aspire to become a teacher, psychologist, scientist, business leader, musician, pastor, ministry leader, or pursue another career path, you can build career skills as you connect one-on-one with professors who combine life experience with academic expertise and mentor you in your growth.
Valuable hands-on experience outside of the classroom is integral to all Ambrose programs. Practicums in social service agencies, networking through business conferences, local and global ministry internships, and world travel studies allow you to put your education into practice and set you up for your career.
