The Fresh Future Appeal – 604 for 604

In 1935, pastor George Hawtin of Star City, Saskatchewan, followed a vision to “train tomorrow’s leaders,” and established the Bethel Bible Institute. Relocating to Saskatoon in 1937, Bethel was eventually renamed Central Pentecostal College and is now Horizon College & Seminary. This school and has been a leader in innovating ways to train Christian leaders for the past 85 years.

In January 2021, Horizon made a landmark move by relocating to a customized, state-of-the-art facility. Serving as a multi-denominational hub in the heart of the Canadian prairies, the facility is built with tomorrow’s Christian leaders in mind.

Its design incorporates efficient, flexible meeting spaces and high-end technologies that massively enhance and expand Horizon’s capacity to reach and prepare competent Christian leaders for the future.

Our location has changed but our mission remains as fresh and urgent as ever. And you play a pivotal role in it!

As part of our relocation to 604 Webster Street, we need to raise $604,000.00 – 604 for 604! Your donation today helps cover the expenses of establishing this innovative Christian leadership hub on the prairies and pays for the high-end technologies embedded in our classrooms that massively enhance and expand our ability to reach and prepare future Christian leaders.

Your ongoing support reduces the cost of tuition, easing the way for future leaders to heed God’s call. Thank you for catching the vision and inspiring it’s progress on – to train tomorrow’s Christian leaders, today!

This is your opportunity to be a part of Horizon’s fresh future!

COVID has changed our world. With Generation Z we see the emergence of the first fully post-Christian generation. What does the church look like in a post-COVID, post-Christian world? What role does preparing future Christian leaders play?
