Great Lakes Bible College strives to makes learning accessible to everyone. Whether obstacles to learning include time, distance or money, we offer alternative pathways and assistance to support our students and potential students. This is why we have created the GLBC Sponsorship Fund.

What is the GLBC Sponsorship Fund?
The Fund supports an internal bursary award created to help students who want to take courses but cannot afford tuition or other school-related expenses. It is supported through donations from individuals, estates, congregations and other sources. 
Who is eligible to apply?
Application to the Great Lakes Bible Bursary is open to students of all backgrounds. Students from Churches of Christ as well as full time students with the intention to pursue Ministry as a career, will be given special consideration. Specific eligibility criteria can be found on our website

If you are a current student at GLBC, we encourage you to apply for the bursary! Decisions on the next round of funding will be made at the end of this year. 

Contributing to the GLBC Sponsorship Fund is a tangible way to put your donations to work, supporting students who are eager to learn and live out Christ's Great Commissions to "disciple the nations." 

We encourage you to consider Great Lakes Bible College and the GLBC Sponsorship Fund in your giving. When you make a donation on our website, click the "Fund" dropdown menu and select "GLBC Sponsorship Fund" to ensure your donation is going directly to students' financial needs.

Niagara Life Centre - Music is so powerful. Lyrics can say exactly what we don't know how to express ourselves, the tune can stir our heartstrings, the atmosphere can break down walls of skepticism in our minds... However we connect - worship is an integral part of how we commune with God and develop our inner being.

We believe that not only our clients, but anyone in our church communities can benefit from an encounter with God through music and we want to invite you a night of worship with Brooke Nicholls on November 10th!  

Please Purchase Tickets at: lindsay.g.danielson@gmail.com or text Lindsay at:
289-686-7011. A poster with more information is posted on the bulletin board near the offices.
