BackLearning Centre

The Student Learning Centre (SLC) is a new initiative at Heritage, the purpose of which is to equip students for the rigours of postsecondary education. The SLC offers a number of free services, including seminars on writing skills, research, time management and exam preparation. Targeted help is also available during drop-in hours as well as in focused study groups (e.g., Greek Grammar). College and Seminary students are encouraged to make use of these services. The SLC is located in the Academic Building, right next to the Library and the Seminary Lounge.

Jordan Senecal

Student Learning Centre Coordinator

Jordan is currently pursuing a Master of Theological Studies (MTS) in the Seminary in hopes of moving on to a doctorate in the future and teaching at the Seminary level. He has earned a Bachelor of Religious Education from Master’s College and Seminary in Peterborough, ON, as well as a Diploma of Collegial Studies (DCS/DEC) in Mechanical Engineering Tech. at Dawson College in Montreal, QC. Jordan has extensive experience in helping students, having previously served in the Academic Success Centre at Master’s College and Seminary. With plans on being an author in the future, formatting and writing have become somewhat of a preoccupation to him, so he is thrilled to be able to help others in these matters.

Beth Lambert

Student Learning Centre Peer Reader

Hi, my name is Beth and I’m in my last year of the MTS program in the Seminary. I did my undergrad at the University of Guelph studying International Development with a focus in Political Economy. I got a taste for ministry while on leadership with Power to Change at Guelph and loved it so much I decided to change paths and pursue ministry as a career. Specifically, I’m hoping to work in women’s ministry, to train up women to disciple others and teach the word of God. Some of my favourite classes at Heritage have been Global Issues and the Gospel, Pentateuch and Church History. I love reading, camping and playing the ukulele poorly.

Hannah Desroches

Student Learning Centre Peer Reader

Hi, my name is Hannah and I am currently in my fourth year of the BREP-Social and Family Ministries program. I was homeschooled for 7 years by a mother who takes grammar and writing very seriously and thus I guess you could say I have followed in her footsteps. I love sports and music and have played on various teams and been in bands at Heritage. I also love to travel and learn new languages. I’m an RA here at the school and love getting to build relationships with people and do life with them.
