Discover Your Passion
“In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.” Romans 12:6-8
What is a Track?
Develop spiritual gifts as you worship, serve and learn
Eston College believes every Christian is gifted to serve the church and minister to a hurting world. For this reason, we offer a variety of learning tracks that contribute to our Biblical Studies degree. Each learning track is designed to help students discover their gifts and passions, and to develop valuable skills for ministry.
During a student’s first year, they will choose up to two learning tracks (one each semester). Upper level students can continue to benefit from the learning tracks as they progress in Biblical Studies, but tracks are only mandatory for Freshmen.

Practice makes perfect
HOW TRACKS WORK
Students meet with their track leader on a weekly basis for “track-time” to learn specific ministry skills, as well as the biblical background necessary to develop character and passion. Students are assigned weekly tasks that develop the skills they are learning in their track. The Biblical Studies curriculum also complements a student’s chosen track by introducing track-specific assignments that reinforce what each student is learning.
All ministry tracks are designed to include intensive, hands-on ministry experience. Freshmen students will participate in one week-long, plus two weekend trips each semester. Trips provide practical ministry opportunities and additional teaching from off-site teachers with real-life experience in their learning focus. During this week-long trip, students will travel with other students from a variety of learning tracks. The blending between tracks will benefit each student as they receive training from experts both within and from outside of their learning track’s subject matter. Students will be challenged to participate in application that extends past the borders of their track’s specialty. So for example, students in the Worship track may be asked to do street evangelism with the Martyr’s Life students; whereas the Martyr’s Life students may get to participate in a training session on prophetic worship from someone at a House of Prayer.
LOCATIONS FOR TRIPS
Locations for the week-long trips include Winnipeg, Regina, Calgary, and other major cities within travelling distance of Eston. Most tracks also include two additional weekend trips each semester to apply what they are learning. These trips will go to nearby centers, like Saskatoon or Swift Current and will most likely only include team members from the student’s track. So for example, when possible Prayer students will travel as a team for weekend trips, but not for week-long trips.
