What is a Discipleship Bible School (DBS)?
During this 12-week introduction to the Bible, students will receive an overview of “God’s story” and discover more of his ways. Students will read the entire Bible, observe the chronology of biblical events, better understand each book in its historical context, understand the harmony between books, and recognize the different genres of literature and major themes found in all 66 books. By going directly to the source, students will learn foundational truths of the Christian faith.
COST: € 2200 + additional costs for Israel trip TBA
What To Expect?
Topics in DBS generally follow the books you are chronologically studying. Discover the original intent of each book, as well as its various topics.
You will learn Worldview and Origins studying through Genesis, Exodus and Job. Or you might look at Leadership and Worship as you study the life of David in 1 & 2 Samuel, Chronicles and the Psalms. In studying Acts, you may find topics on Cross-Cultural Missions and the Cost of the Call. Each book is filled with insights to be discovered!
As a result, you will be able to share your faith more confidently and explain God’s Word more accurately.
Consider DBS a sequel to DTS. Students will continue the discipleship process by addressing a variety of topics, building godly character, and developing a lifelong hunger and love for the Word. This will not only be accomplished in the classroom, in one-on-one meetings and small groups, but also in evangelism and mercy ministry opportunities in the community.
Berlin is a vibrant city largely viewed as one of the key cultural hubs of Europe. What happens in Berlin spreads throughout Germany and to the nations. Something new is stirring; walls of division are coming down; unity and faith are growing and we are seeing a move of people being encountered by God in their everyday lives on the streets, on metro lines, in coffee shops and in public squares. There is a new stirring of the Spirit growing on the continent. Be a part of activating God’s plans in Berlin!
