Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary Canada (Langley campus) conferred 11 degrees at its third commencement ceremony Apr. 19, 2014, as part of the ACTS Seminaries exercises at Central Heights Church, Abbotsford, B.C. David Horita, regional director of the Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches Pacific, delivered the commencement address.

“The five seminaries together help you see things from a different perspective. It gives you a chance to move beyond your own perspective,” says MA in Christian studies graduate Joe Kraftchick, while fellow MA CS graduate Ryley Heppner affirms MBBS’s denominational grounding: “I didn’t necessarily feel connected to the MB world before seminary, but now I do.” MA in marriage and family therapy graduate says Deana Brandt, “I don’t think I would be half the therapist I am if I didn’t have my theology.”
