Dave Reimer Named Next President of Steinbach Bible College

[STEINBACH, MB – January 30, 2023] – Steinbach Bible College and its Board of Directors are pleased to announce that Dave Reimer will serve as the college’s next President.

Reimer returns to SBC, where he was a full-time faculty member from 2007-12. He currently is the Bishop of the Christian Mennonite Conference (CMC), one of the four supporting church conferences of SBC. He has spent 26 years leading churches in the CMC, mentoring and guiding church leaders during this time. He is happily married to his wife, Shelley, and together they have five children and twelve grandchildren.

“Dave comes to us with much experience as a former professor at SBC and as Bishop of the CMC conference,” Trevor Arsenault, Chair of the SBC Board of Directors, stated. “The Board is excited to work with Dave as we move forward to serve the next generation of churches and the community.”

“It has become my passion to help raise up the next generation of Christian leaders for the strength of the church, and for hope in our world,” Reimer said. “I see SBC as a significant place where that kind of ministry happens. I look forward to being back on the SBC team in a full-time capacity again.”

Reimer will succeed Dr. Terry Hiebert, the interim President of SBC. Hiebert will retire at the conclusion of the 2022-23 academic year.

“As a part-time and regular faculty, he brought an engaging biblical and Christ-centered focus to students, and his pastoral care for students and staff will exemplify the best of SBC values,” Hiebert expressed. “I look forward to seeing where God leads Dave and the team in the next phase of the SBC journey.”

Reimer is expected to officially start his duties as SBC President on June 1, 2023.
