Bethany College (formerly Bethany Bible Institute) was a Christian Bible college established in the town of Hepburn, Saskatchewan, Canada in 1927. Bethany was co-sponsored by the Mennonite Brethren Churches of Alberta and Saskatchewan, and the Saskatchewan Evangelical Mennonite Mission Conference churches. The mission of Bethany College was to nurture disciples and train leaders to serve. It was named after the village of Bethany near Jerusalem, a location of several significant encounters with Jesus, as mentioned in the New Testament. It was announced by the board of directors on December 9, 2014, that Bethany's last year of operation "in its current iteration" would be academic year 2014–15.[1][2]

Programs[edit]

Bethany College offered four programs of study:

  • The TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) Certificate (15 credits)
  • Diploma of Biblical Studies (2 years)
  • Bachelor of Christian Studies Degree (3 years)
  • Bachelor of Arts Degree (4 years)
