Strategic Plan

“Elaine and I moved from Toronto to Alberta to join the Prairie team about 13 years ago. Very early in our time here, I was captured by the mandate in Psalm 138:2, to exalt above all things, the Name of God and His Word. Consequently, we adjusted our curriculum to ensure full coverage of the Canon in seven courses that are part of every degree.

Those became the cornerstones of our strategic activity, and over time, God brought about a corporate transformation at Prairie, giving us harmony, renewed purpose, and profitability, that I believe is as miraculous as causing the lame to walk.

So, now, as we pass the milestone marking our first century, we look with great anticipation toward the future, trusting God and leaning into the challenges that will certainly come our way while staying true to our created purpose – to exalt above all things His Name and His Word.

Let me take this opportunity to invite you into our story. See where we are going, and if our plan resonates with you, step in. We believe we are in for an exciting story of God’s continuing work at Prairie – and we’d be honored to have you be part of it.”

Mark L. Maxwell


At Prairie, we believe that the importance of knowing, teaching and advocating for God’s Word has never been greater. Our goal is not just to enhance biblical literacy among our college community, but rather to impact this generation through the Scriptures as they find access to the Almighty, to His power, and to gain a greater understanding of the universe He has made. We have created the book and video below to share some insight of what this book is and why it is so important to us.

Walk through a garden of God’s names selected from the Hebrew Scriptures to see what they tell us about the Almighty. Imagine that each of His names is a beautiful flower, which comes together to form a beautiful and aromatic bouquet. But remember, this can be a risky beauty. Like the challenge that Moses faced, will we be open to not only hearing God’s name but also bearing it to the places he calls us?

2023 Annual Report

As the 2023 year concludes, it is good to look back to see what has happened. The Lord is blessing our efforts because we believe we have returned to our created purpose of teaching the whole Canon of Scripture… And because we are attempting to honour God by living together in harmony (Jesus’ prayer in John 17). In these ways we “exalt above all things His name and His Word” (Ps 138:2). We feel we have seen God’s hand at work in our college community, and we have many reasons to give Him praise. Thank you for playing your part in Prairie’s story through your prayers, gifts, and encouragement. 

Best Christian Workplace

Prairie College was again recognized as a “Best Christian Workplace” in 2021, topping the BCWI scores from both 2015 and 2018 with a 4.38 out of 5.00. The college was featured in a podcast interview on The Flourishing Culture @BCWInstitute. Listen as Mark tells the story about how God has taken Prairie from what BCWI would have identified as a “toxic” culture to a “flourishing” culture.

Here are key opportunities you can partner with Prairie

We have launched our Campaign for Greater Impact to provide students with the very best learning opportunities and campus facilities for the decades ahead. 

In Phase One of this Campaign, we plan to invest in much-needed campus renewal, including: upgraded Infrastructure, a new Student Residence, Cafeteria, Worship Auditorium, and expanded Aviation Training Centre. A modern campus requires an investment that is bold, and even expensive, but each Campaign Project is strategic, and designed to enhance Prairie’s campus and student life experience.

Expansion of Prairie Aviation Training Centre

This expansion of PATC’s facility is a key project of Prairie’s Campaign for Greater Impact. It will increase the College’s capacity to train a new generation of Christian aviators to serve God in missions, and also address the growing need for trained pilots in the commercial aviation sector.

Scholarships & Education Fund

Invest in the next generation of missional professionals. Each year Prairie College distributes over $500,000 in scholarships and bursaries to students. We are grateful for each gift that reduces the burden of students’ tuition and allows students to fulfill their God-given professions.

Prison Bible Encounter Program

Encourage inmates in five institutions across Alberta to discover or reconnect with Jesus Christ. This fund assists the students studying the Certificate in Bible program with scholarships, resources for classes, and instruction. 

General Ministries

Prairie College is educating students to pursue a Biblical foundation for life and career.  Your contribution to this fund assists in minimizing the College’s general operating expenses.
