Millar College of the Bible (formally called the Millar Memorial Bible Institute in its act of incorporation) is a post secondary institution established in 1932,[1] and recognized by the government of Saskatchewan as an educational institution in 1944.[2] The school is a private nonprofit institution recognized under a private act offering post secondary education.[3]

History[edit]

William Millar heard D.L. Moody preaching in Scotland and became a Christian. Millar then came to Canada to preach and began a Bible school in Moose Jaw, SK. In 1932, the school moved to Pambrun, SK, and both Herbert W. Peeler and William Dickson were asked to help with the teaching. In January 1933, Reverend Millar died leaving Mr. Peeler in charge of the school. The school was renamed Millar Memorial Bible Institute. Peeler directed the school for over fifty years til he retired.[4]

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.[2]

Campuses[edit]

The "home" campus in Pambrun, Saskatchewan has 7 main buildings including:[5]

In the fall of 2012, an extension campus was established in partnership with Sunnybrae Bible Camp in Tappen, BC. This campus maintains the same values, goals and core program as the Saskatchewan campus, while offering unique opportunities the location affords, including skiing, water sports, and service with the local volunteer fire department.[6]
