Learning Tracks


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.

How Tracks Work:

Students meet with their track leader on a weekly basis for “track-time” (1 hour and 40 minute class session) to learn track-specific ministry skills as well as the biblical background necessary to develop character and passion for how God will use their track’s ministry skill. Students are assigned weekly assignments that develop the skills they are learning in their track. The biblical studies curriculum also complements a student’s chosen track by regularly introducing track-specific assignments that strengthen what a student is learning in their track.


Hands-On Learning

All ministry tracks are designed to include intensive hands-on ministry experience. Freshmen students will participate in a week-long trip each semester that provides 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 music 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 students track. So for example, when possible Martyr’s Life students will travel as a team for weekend trips, but not for week-long trips.
