Alberta Bible College sends first year students to the Mustard Seed for their Fall Ministry experience where they see homelessness from two view points. The first is from the eyes of the guests of the Mustard Seed, eating with them and living in the streets for a week period. The other is from perspective of the Mustard Seed. Students serve meals and interact with the guests. The Mustard Seed is also a location for students to do their Practical Ministries over the school year as well as internship.
The Mustard Seed is a Christian non-profit organization that has been caring for the needs of the less fortunate since 1984. The Mustard Seed delivers basic services, housing and employment programs to those in need and partners with the community to address poverty.
Alberta Bible College holds their fall student body retreat at Pine Lake Christian Camp each year. Over the summer months Pine Lake Christian Camp traditionally hires some students as their program staff where they experience first hand training in camp ministry, which includes everything from program development to counseling and teaching.
Pine Lake Christian Camp – “a fun place to experience God”, has existed since 1943. It has been the focus of many people’s dreams, desires and prayers to see people come to Christ through the camp. The camp exists on 32 acres of lakefront, woodland and developed property. Camps usually consist of teaching time, worship, crafts, recreation, campfires and supervised free time.
“We feel that what we have to offer at the camp is an invaluable experience where people from all over Western Canada can build life-long relationships that are focused on Christ.”
