History

William Millar came to Canada to preach after becoming a Christian under the preaching of Dwight L. Moody in Scotland. Millar began a Bible school in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, and in 1932 the school moved to Pambrun, SK. William Dickson and a young Herbert W. Peeler were asked to help with the teaching. In January 1933, Millar died, leaving Peeler in charge of the school, which was renamed Millar Memorial Bible Institute. Herbert W. Peeler directed the school for over fifty years until he retired.Those instrumentally involved were William Dickson and Herbert W. Peeler, both of Pambrun, and Charles Williamson of Glen Bain. The focus of the school was to train workers for vocational and non-vocational Evangelical ministry in Western Canada and overseas.

An extension campus was established in 2012, in partnership with Sunnybrae Bible Camp in Tappen, BC. In 2021, a third campus was established in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Programs

The college offers a one year certificate, a two year Christian Ministry Diploma, a three year Bachelor of Biblical Studies, and a four year Bachelor of Arts in Strategic Ministries.
