Why Does Clearwater Exist?

It’s simple really: Our need for Jesus. The mandate he left for his followers was to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18-20). Empowered by the Holy Spirit, that is what they did, and that is what we continue to do today by Equipping for Life and Ministry.


In equipping students for life, we follow the Acts 2:42 model by seeking to devote ourselves to the apostles’ teaching, fellowship, the breaking of bread, and prayer. Students may or may not be academically strong, but degrees and certificates only matter if students are effectively equipped for life by being empowered by the Spirit.


In equipping for ministry, we focus on cultivating a lifestyle of worship to minister to the Lord, on an Ephesians 4 equipping model to minister to the Church, and on preparing labourers for the harvest to effectively minister to the world.

Our history is highlighted by our focus on Christ and our close-knit community. Did we mention the beautiful creation we find ourselves in as we equip for life and ministry?

Jesus told us to make disciples. That’s what we do. That’s why we exist.
