Administrative History

Around the turn of the 20th century, many Mennonite Brethren churches began to appear in what later became the province of Saskatchewan. In 1909, the MB immigrants, most of which were from the United States, organized themselves as the Northern District Conference of General Conference of MB Churches in North America. During the first Northern District Convention in Herbert in 1910, many concerns were expressed for the need for church-related schools, to help the youth retain the German language, to train church workers, and to strengthen the church. It was after this convention that the vision of Bethany Bible Institute and other Bible schools such as Herbert Bible School and Coaldale Bible School were born.

In 1927, a nine-man board was chosen, representing Laird, Burden, Hepburn, Dalmeny, Waldheim and Brotherfield. These men purchased the old Hepburn Public School, which would later become Bethany Bible Institute. Classes were first taught in the Hepburn Church with D.P. Esau teaching seven students. The school motto was “Study to show thyself approved unto God” (2 Tim 3:15). By the end of that year enrollment had tripled to 21 students. It was in the 1930s that the school began teaching out of their own building, the old Hepburn Public School. In the late 1930s, early 1940s, the schools’ emphasis began to shift from the preservation of the German language toward missions. Many Bethany graduates were becoming career missionaries. There were changes to the curriculum and from 1940–1945 Bethany operated as a Bible College.

In 1968, Bethany amalgamated with Alberta MB Bible Institute of Coaldale. It was in 1977, a decision was made to seek accreditation with the American Association of Bible Colleges. After many evaluations, accreditation was abandoned in 1986, but was later received with the American Association of Bible Colleges (AABC) in 2000. In 1995, the Saskatchewan Conference of Evangelical Mennonite Mission Church joined as a third co-sponsor of Bethany. Howard Wall became the school's last president in 2010. He led the school through to its closure in 2015.

Note: At the Saskatchewan MB convention on March 13, 2015, Randy Klassen made a presentation with slides reviewing the 88-year history of the school. The text and the slides are available for viewing/downloading (click here).

Scope and Content

The records found in this collection consist of school yearbooks, calendars, brochures, school paper, catalogues, convention reports and other memorabilia.

Custodial History

The material in this collection has come to the archives at various times from various donors.  In 2009, records from Bethany were brought from the school via Doug Heidebrecht.  In 2012, Paul Toews deposited a book listing the activities of the prayer group (1932-1937). In 2013, Ross Hardy, retired stewardship representative for the Saskatchewan Conference, deposited correspondence, minutes and insurance related material that were in his files (Vol. 1334-A, File 1). In October 2015, Jon Isaak drove from Winnipeg to Hepburn with a rental van and brought back to CMBS for archiving approximately 50 boxes of material that Bethany College staff had previously sorted: meeting minutes, correspondence, department files, photographs, recordings, etc. (Acc. No. 2015-19).
