We're all a little anxious in the midst of this COVID-19 storm. But please remember that is is a storm - a fierce and terrible storm, for sure! - but a storm all the same and it will pass. Right now we, along with the rest of the world, are forced to bunker-down and wait it out as best we can while preserving as much life, laughter, and normalcy as we can. On March 19, all students who remained on campus completed the onsite portion of classes and most have moved out of residence. Horizon's facility is now locked down to [...]

We will also offer opportunities to connect weekly online for chapel and life groups. We are not completely closing our residence since this is the local "home" many have who are working in the city. However, we will encourage students already planning to return home after [...]

At this stage of the outbreak, Horizon will continue operating cautiously as usual.

On the chilly evening of December 18, 2019, Horizon alumni, friends, staff, and students gathered to celebrate breaking ground for our new facility, set for completion by December 2020. Our president, Dr. Jeromey Martini, shared the following words: "We are here tonight commemorating the ground-breaking of a new building that represents the fourth time this college has relocated. These relocations tell an important story about who we are as a college. Established in 1935 in Star City, SK, we relocated to Saskatoon in 1937, first moving in with Elim Church. Shortly thereafter, we relocated near the city's inner core, to what [...]
