Trinity Western University is awaiting the results of their Supreme Court case as they hope to gain accreditation. 

Law societies from British Columbia and Ontario have asked Canada's highest court to deny accreditation to Trinity Western University and their proposed law school. 

The evangelical school, just east of Vancouver, is under fire for its community covenant that each student signs. The argument heavily revolves around the part of the covenant that states there should be no sexual relations outside of a heterosexual relationship. 

"Whatever the outcome is, we're going to be bold and in love."

Southland Church in Steinbach, a school supporter, has asked the congregation to join them in fasting and prayer.

"In the Bible, whenever there were big things happening, God's people got together to pray and fast," explained Kris Duerksen, lead pastor at Southland.

Duerksen hopes that the Supreme Court will stand for religious freedom and approve the university for accreditation. 

"In a country like ours that professes to have religious freedom, there should be the freedom for religious schools to hold a certain belief and community standards of living that are in the Bible," he explained.

The arguments were originally heard back on December 1, 2017. The verdict will come on Friday, June 15. Duerksen says, regardless of the outcome, he wants his church to be one that continually loves God.
