SBC was established in 1936 to provide students with an opportunity to expand their bible knowledge. Our program has grown to integrate biblical teaching into all aspects of learning whether that is bible study, ministry development, or general arts courses. Bible, discipleship, community, and mission have driven the ministry of SBC since it’s beginning. These values continue as the basis of the learning process in all the educational programs of the College. At SBC, we are about more than just academics. Our goal at SBC is to give you an education that is relevant for life. No matter what program you're in, you will be introduced to hands-on ministry each year to give you opportunities to put your faith into action. This is partly done through our Mission X program, a life-changing experience for all involved.

Areas of Expertise

Whether it's reaching out to the needs of a fellow classmate, giving out soup in inner-city Winnipeg, showing love to a native child in northern Manitoba, or speaking Spanish with a fellow Christian in Cuba - living out love is a vital component to any program you may choose to take at SBC. Prepare for ministry with one of our certificate, diploma, or degree programs. Majors include Bible/Theology, Christian Studies, Global Mission, Pastoral, Peer Counselling, Youth, or Worship Arts.

On Campus Housing

Steinbach Bible College has a men’s and a women’s residence just steps from the dining area, student lounge, and classrooms. The SBC residence is not just another place to live, but a unique opportunity to grow spiritually, study God’s word, build constructive friendships and learn to live with others.

College facilities and equipment are available for student use. Please see the Athletic Assistants for access to the equipment storage rooms. Scheduled activities take precedence over recreational use of facilities and equipment.


The annual All College Retreat takes place each September at Red Rock Bible Camp in Manitoba's beautiful Whiteshell Provincial Park. It is a weekend designed to build community, friendship and set the spiritual direction for the year. One day each semester, the student body has a Community Day when classes are cancelled and time is spent in prayer and devotional sessions, singing, testimonies and social activities. These days are a time for spiritual and community building.


The Student Council, elected by the student body, guides the student body in matters of policy and practice. Members of the Council serve as representatives on the various student committees such as Yearbook, Literary, Chapel, Spiritual Life and others. Student representatives also serve on various faculty-initiated committees such as the All College Retreat, Impact and the Mission Exposure Committees.
