Unique to Medicine Hat, Chinook Village is a faith-based organization initially developed by the Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada as a centre for learning known as Hillcrest Christian College. These roots are foundational to the whole of Chinook Village with strong values of trust, integrity, compassion, and accountability running deeply and that Inextricably flow through every service we extend today.
Registered with the Government of Alberta, our operations are currently overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of residents and members of the Medicine Hat community. Chinook Village continues to meet the spiritual needs of our residents through our respect of these values and our Chaplaincy program.
Our Chaplain offers pastoral care, counselling, hospital visitation along with other complementary roles to ministry. Chinook Village Chaplaincy features weekly worship in our beautiful chapel as well as weekly Bible studies, sing-a-longs, special occasion services and many opportunities for group and volunteer participation. Please get in touch for more information.
