The Alumni Exec currently consists of 5 members, in addition to an NBC staff member who serves as staff liason. Each executive member serves a 2 year term, and can be re-elected for a second 2 year term if they so wish. After a one year absence past executive members are welcome to re-run for a position on the Exec. The Alumni Executive seeks to serve the Alumni Association by helping it reach its stated purposes in the Alumni Constitution.
This is a volunteer position. The hours put into this job can widely vary depending on the current Executive, how much each Exec is willing to put into the position, and many varying other conditions. The main time-consuming responsibility of Alumni Executive in recent years has been planning and organizing Alumni Weekend, held every November at the college.
After finishing high school I attended NBC for 2 years, from 2010-2012. After my time there I moved to Prince Albert where I’ve been apprenticing in electrical for just over 2 years. In 2013 I married my precious wife Raija-Liisa (Block, NBC Alumnus 2008-11) who is currently in her last year of nursing classes. I stay involved in my local church through both quizzing and being a youth sponsor. I am quite excited to serve in this role over the next couple years, and to see what’s in store as I work along side the rest of the Alumni Executive. I look forward to seeing the plans God has for this school.
Andy’s years at NBC gave him a safe space to question his faith, produced in him a deeper love of God and a desire to serve the local church. In his spare time, Andy enjoys going to the park with his family, torturing himself by supporting Toronto-based sports franchises and reading dry, boring books that put his wife to sleep.
I was at NBC from 2002-05 Right after bible school I worked at a flower shop for 1.5 yrs. I then started working at Blue Bronna Wilderness Camp for the summers. I have been there for 7 summers now serving in various capacities. Between summers I worked at the co-op grocery store for 2 winters and I was receptionist at NBC for another 2 winters. I then went to BC to study equine therapy specializing in spinal manipulation (chiropractic for horses). I am presently working in Nipawin as a carpenter and do a bit of equine therapy on the side. Random fact: I enjoy cooking and baking over the fire.

Jason joined NBC staff in fall 2011, and is currently the Director of Enrollment and Alumni Relations. Having served 4 years as Alumni Exec president from 2006-2010, Jason is no stranger to the Exec and has served as the NBC staff liaison since November 2011.

Brenden Peters is the intern pastor at Garrington Community Church near Olds, Alberta. He is currently completing his Bachelor of Arts in Christian Leadership at Nipawin Bible College. He is a dedicated follower of Christ with a heart to see the Church grow, and he looks to go into full-time pastoral ministry once his schooling is complete in the spring. For fun, he likes to play games with family and friends, watch sports of any kind (Go Oilers!), or watch a good movie. And he does not turn down an opportunity for a good theological conversation. Brenden and his wife, Helena, have been married for 3 years; they have 1 son and another child on the way.
