In 1967, Living Faith Evangelistic Association was founded to support and assist Pastor Cliff Stalwick as he traveled in evangelistic ministry. Throughout his early ministry, Pastor Stalwick encountered many young adults who expressed the desire for a Christ-centered, Bible-based training college that carefully blended study of the Word of God, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and the practical outworking of faith in everyday life. in 1971 a rustic resort west of Caroline, Alberta was purchased and that fall the first classes of Living Faith Bible College were held.
In 2015, the name of the College was legally changed to Clearwater College. It still operates under Living Faith Evangelistic Association and continues to carry out its original mission of equipping students for Christian living and service by incorporating Biblical teaching, the power of the Holy Spirit, and experiential training experiences.
