Invest in the Next Generation
How did you discover your calling?
Do you remember the individuals who supported you as you learned to follow and serve Jesus?
We hope you experienced the incredible gift of having people in your life who cheered you on as you discovered who God created you to be. People who discipled you, listened to your dreams and questions, and invested time, energy, and resources to help you on your journey.
What if you could be that someone for the young adults around you? At Columbia Bible College, our dream is to help young adults live their best possible lives — lives that are Christ-centered and kingdom-focused. Lives that will impact the world with the love and amazing news of Jesus!
We would love to partner with you as you make an impact on the next generation of Christ-followers. There are so many ways you can come alongside young adults and give them opportunities to be equipped for a lifetime of discipleship. How will you make a difference?
“Being here in community I’ve learned about what it means to love others, to try to work with people, to solve problems in a Christian way, not just a business-like way.”
“We’re encouraged to dream big at Columbia. I would love to travel overseas with my husband and bring college-level biblical education to places where there isn’t any. I’ve also thought a lot about pastoring.”
“If I could preach, teach, make disciples, and facilitate the multiplication of disciple-making as a full-time job, you would just need to tell me where to sign.”
Four Ways You Can Make an Impact on the Next Generation
Encourage a Young Adult to Consider Columbia
You have an amazing capacity to influence. Over and over, we hear that students are choosing to attend Columbia because someone in their life encouraged them to consider it: a friend, a family member, a pastor. We’re so excited these conversations are happening! What about you? Is there someone you care about who’d be a good fit for Columbia?
Pray for Students & Staff
“The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working” (Jame 5:16 ESV). Many people aren’t able to support young adults with their time or finances, but they are able to pray. If you’re someone who loves to pray, please contact us and we’ll gladly send you our most current prayer calendar, with specific requests related to our students, faculty, and Columbia community.
Fund a Student Scholarship
A gift to Columbia’s Scholarship & Bursaries fund has the potential to be truly meaningful — both to the students whose lives will be changed and to you. When you fund a student award, you have the opportunity to customize your award according to your passions. Maybe that’s giving young people a firm biblical foundation, or training new missionaries. You can also choose to invest in the kind of students you have a heart for, whether that’s a student from a single-parent family, or someone with an exceptional academic record. And many families create a scholarship to honour a friend or family member who’s been a part of our Columbia community, providing a special tribute to that loved one.
Give to the Columbia Fund
Make an Online Donation
Whether $50 or $50,000, each generous gift to the Columbia Fund goes directly to helping students pursue their God-given calling by keeping student tuition and fees affordable and by funding our scholarships & bursaries program. Over 20% of Columbia’s annual revenue comes from the generosity of faithful churches and donors like you!
There are several ways to donate including one-time or recurring gifts to gifts-in-kind, including stocks or property. To discuss your options please contact the Columbia Development department at 604-853-3358 or email us to have a representative meet with you.
