Sing to the Lord a New Song

Report of Lutheran Collegiate Bible Institute

Each morning as students and staff gather for a time of worship, we sing to the Lord a new song!

We are LCBI High School; an exciting, vibrant high school campus community on the banks of the South Saskatchewan River in Outlook, Saskatchewan.

As a school of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, we provide a Christian framework for students as they try to make sense of our rapidly changing world.

More than ever, students need a framework, a way of putting life in perspective, of finding a context in which to grow and develop. At LCBI, the highly committed Christian faculty and staff nurture life in both the residential and academic setting, providing students with the foundation and skills necessary to walk with confidence into the future and with Jesus Christ as their guide.

LCBI High School

Our Programs

  • We offer grades 10–12 for students across Canada and around the world. This year we had 130 students who came to us from Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, Ontario and Hong Kong.
  • A fully certified and accredited high school program is taught by professional faculty.
  • Strong tradition of fine arts has been developed at LCBI which includes choral music, praise and worship teams, voice and piano lessons, drama and art program, both for credit and as extracurricular involvement. During the Easter break this year, our auditioned Concert Choir presented concerts in Saskatchewan and Manitoba during their spring tour. The quality of the choir once again resulted in advancement to provincial competition.
  • Wide variety of athletic programs are offered including basketball, football, track and field, golf, curling, badminton, softball and baseball and complete with hockey through the Town of Outlook league.
  • Christian growth is strengthened through daily worship, Christian Ethics courses, Bible studies, prayer and mentoring through staff and colleagues.
  • Outdoor education programs such as canoe, hiking and ski trips.
  • Opportunities for mission work and outreach are provided for students. In February 2003, two staff and nine students took part in a twelve-day mission trip to Vicente Guererro, Mexico.

Our Facilities

  • New facilities and recently renovated buildings offer good quality space for our academic and extracurricular programming.
  • Our focus during the winter months of 2003 was to upgrade existing facilities to higher maintenance standards.
  • A new maintenance shop was completed this year providing heated working space for our maintenance persons.
  • A new hobby center was opened in 2003 giving students the opportunity to learn woodworking skills. A new credit construction course was added this year.
  • We continue with plans to implement a 2.5 million dollar building program for the replacement of our dining hall and kitchen, addition to the men’s residence and a chapel complex.

Our People

  • A community of acceptance and celebration exists within a wide range of cultures and backgrounds, providing to students with a strong team and leadership. This adds a profound richness to the educational experience.
  • Forty percent of our students are of the Lutheran family.
  • Faculty and staff are committed to the growth, development and success of each while a student here at LCBI. Numerous extra hours are put in every week by staff who supervise study time, provide extra help, coach and mentor.
  • The vision of LCBI is to develop leaders of tomorrow; young people who have the Christian foundation, skills and understanding necessary to lead the businesses, communities and churches within the global community.

Our Future

  • We are blessed by the leadership that was so faithfully provided by Past-President Pastor Dan Haugen, and we are thankful for the help and leadership given to us by Interim President, Mr Doug Hopkins. Please pray for the school and the search committee as we continue to seek for a full-time president.
  • We are continuing to develop and implement new advertising and recruiting strategies that will give our school full enrollment.
  • In a survey completed this year of the parents of our students who chose to send their youth here, we have received good feedback on where we can incrementally improve our programs.
  • We give thanks to God for those who support the church and our school. Thank you to those who faithfully support in their financial giving, for those that volunteer their time in assisting with the maintenance of our facilities.

The mission of this school shall be to provide a high quality education for youth, helping them to discover their gifts and to develop their personal potential as members of the family of God, through a sound academic, worship and residential life.

Our Motto

We would see Jesus

Respectfully submitted,

Douglas Hopkins, Interim President
