Why do a DBS?

Do you ever read the Bible and feel confused? Are you interested in understanding your Bible better but don’t know where to start? Are you hungry to continue the discipleship journey you started on your DTS?

In the Discipleship Bible School, you’ll dive into the narrative and redemptive story of scripture as you read the entire Bible with your peers. Together, in a community context, you will learn more about God’s character and nature, God’s grand plan of redemption from Genesis to Revelation and God’s Biblical principles that endure through all generations.

Our heart is that you not only read and understand scripture during this time, but that you are discipled and transformed by the truth of God’s word during this time, and be lead to disciple others with God’s word too. The ultimate goal of this school is that you grow in your relationship with the Lord, have a biblical foundation in the truth of God’s word and be equipped to study God’s word, bringing discipleship, transformation and the truth of God’s word to others, no matter which sphere of society you operate in.
