Clearwater College of Biblical Studies
At Clearwater College student’s spiritual growth is primary. We are passionate about encountering God, biblical instruction, authentic community, life transformation, ministry preparation, and outreach and missions. Our programs seek to combine solid Biblical and theological teaching with relevant life application and practical skill development to equip students for Spirit-filled living and ministry.
The beautifully forested 78-acre campus of Clearwater College is nestled in the picturesque Clearwater Valley in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies. Enhanced by crystal streams, freshwater springs, and bordered by the Clearwater River, the campus provides a virtual paradise for recreational activities and a serene wilderness setting for meeting with God amidst His creation.
At Clearwater College, we cherish and intentionally cultivate a family culture of acceptance, grace, honesty, and accountability. Joy and laughter are abundant and rich conversations over coffee or meals are plentiful. Our family culture provides a safe place for students to be authentic and experience the healing and transformation that a caring community can provide.
