A Powerful Combination

With Horizon Plus+, you combine intense Christian worldview formation for lifelong Christian living PLUS vocational training for careers and service both within and beyond the church.

Horizon is all about helping leaders develop their God-given gifts and talents to serve God competently for their whole lives. Being a Christian “leader” doesn’t necessarily mean a professional minister, nor is a leader necessarily the one out front.

Studying with Horizon will equip you with essential life skills that will help you succeed in whatever job or schooling you take after your time with us. Many of our most powerful Kingdom leaders are ones serving in everyday occupations, often quietly in the background.

How does it work?

Horizon has 3+1, 2+2, and 2+1 programming options. This means that you can combine a number of years of study at a different institution with studies at Horizon, allowing you to blend training in Bible and ministry with your goal career.

3+1 or 2+1 Programs

These programs require the transfer in of an ADDITIONAL (approved & completed) 1 year program OR a transfer in of 30 credits, or the equivalent, from an approved institution. 

  • For example:  The “Plus 1” could be a one year certificate from Saskatchewan PolyTechnic OR 30 credits from the University of Saskatchewan.

2+2 Programs

A 2+2 program requires an ADDITIONAL (approved & completed) 2 year program to be transferred in. 

  • For example: The “Plus 2” could be a 2 year diploma from Saskatchewan PolyTechnic, Red River College, Bow Valley College, etc.

Growing up in a pastor’s household, I had a front row seat to the many challenges that my parents faced in church leadership. I was able to see many of  the unique challenges that come with pastoring, as well as the challenges that come with the business side of running a church organization. When I received my own call into vocational ministry, I was grateful to have the option of going to Red River College in Winnipeg for a two-year business diploma, which then counted fully towards my degree in Pastoral Leadership at Horizon. I am confident that this 2+2 educational route has prepared me well for many of the challenges that I will face in a pastoral role, as well as in the board room.
