What is your favorite memory about your job at BCA? No wild memories to share, but many students who left their mark and who I will remember.

What do you believe is the most important thing about your job? I love working with students and helping them find what they need whether it's my guidance, a tutor's help, or someone else’s wisdom. Like the other staff here, I care for our students, in particular those who haven’t always felt they belong in an academic setting or have felt generally unaccepted and I try my best to be there for them. I believe this is God’s calling on my life, so it's not just my job.

How have you seen students' lives changed as they encounter God at BCA? I think what makes us different here at BCA is that the students have teachers and staff that not just care about them but pray for them daily. I think they encounter God at work in the lives of the adults around them and I think this is intentional and what makes the difference. As a staff, we all are striving to be actively living out our faith in front of others and we hope that students would recognize the difference and accredit that to God’s work in our lives and choose to do the same.

    As a retired hockey player, Mr. Friesen adds so much not only to our U17 Praire Hockey Academy student Athletes as their head coach but also brings his skills to the classroom. Get to know him below:

I've gotten to know many wonderful people and learn from both teachers and students. Faculty members were very open to answering questions and clarifying expectations so that I could do the best work possible and learn as much as I could from them.
