DBS stands for Discipleship Bible School! If you have ever wanted to read the whole Bible, or if you have the desire to understand the Bible more and deepen your relationship with Christ in a new way, it’s the best school for you. It provides the unique opportunity to commit 3 months to reading the Bible, while being taught historical content and discussing deep truths. Immersing yourself into this kind of environment gives God a platform to bring deep and raw transformation in you life! DBS provides a space to make your faith your own as you learn to read the Word as an act of worship. How can we abide in His Word if we don’t know His truth? This time will give you a clear overview on God’s redemptive plan, His character and nature and who Jesus really is.
“So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32
School Purpose and Goals
The Discipleship Bible School is a perfect option for those who have completed their DTS and are feeling a need for more. This school is a 3 month adventure through the Bible. We read through each book aloud in small groups while discussing questions and concepts, allowing Jesus to move and teach. This is partnered with daily lectures that educate students on historical background and themes that each book holds. All of this provides a perfect platform for truly experiencing the Word for what it truly is. DBS is focused on teaching and equipping students on how to be discipled by the Bible. True transformation comes with a willing heart and a faithful Father. Through this process, students learn the true meaning of repentance and salvation, and will be challenged to practically live out what they are learning through various application. The main goal of DBS is to facilitate a time for students to grow closer to their Creator and to fall in love with His word through being transformed in their minds. Its focus is to bridge spirit and truth with the Word, to inform the overwhelmed and provide a clear understanding on what the Bible actually says. Ultimately, students are able to make there faith their own.
