[STEINBACH, MB – March 17, 2022] – Steinbach Bible College and its Board of Directors have announced today that Dr. Terry Hiebert has been appointed to serve as the Interim President of SBC, effective May 1, 2022.
Dr. Hiebert has served at the college as a faculty member for the past 27 years in the fields of Theology and Humanities. Since 2006, he has been the head of the academic department in the role of the Academic Dean.
“The Board is pleased to announce the appointment of an interim President,” Trevor Arsenault, Chair of the SBC Board of Directors, stated. “We look forward to working with Terry and the many years of leadership experience he brings to the college.”
Hiebert began teaching post-secondary education in 1992 at Bethany Bible Institute in Hepburn, Saskatchewan.
