OUR STORY

Rocky Mountain College (RMC) first opened its doors in Calgary in 1992 but has over 130 years of experience providing quality Christian education. That’s because RMC is built on two solid foundations resulting from the merger of Hillcrest Christian College (Medicine Hat, AB) and Mountain View Bible College (Didsbury, AB). Rocky Mountain College is affiliated with the Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada. The faculty, staff, RMC Board of Governors, and student body represent more than 25 denominations.

In June 1989, the district conferences of the Evangelical Church and the Missionary Church voted to approve in principle the merger of their two institutions, and to sell the existing campuses and elect members to the founding board of the new urban college, RMC in Calgary. The same conferences, in 1991, approved the purchase of the 4039 Brentwood Road facility. Reverend Randy Steinwand was appointed the first president in July 23 of the same year.

RMC welcomed its first students in September, 1992. RMC became debt free with the completion of the sale of the HCC and MVBC campuses.
