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
Why Do a DBS?
Discover Truth: As followers of Jesus in society today, how do we determine what is true? We can listen to some good sermons, have good conversations with friends – or we could go directly to the source God has given us and know it for ourselves. The Bible is the foundation to our faith, and gives us many of the answers that people are asking.
Meet With God: God is inviting us to engage in His Word – not because we have to, but because it gives God great joy to connect with your heart as you do. You’ll see His plan to redeem mankind from Genesis to Revelation, get to know His perfect character, and even begin to see how you fit into His story!
Have Fun Learning With Others: Ever started reading the Bible but have a hard time finishing it? Wished you had someone to process it with? A DBS enriches what you get out of God’s Word as you listen to others and enjoy going through the text together!
Get Equipped: By the end of the DBS, our aim is that you feel confident in leading a small group discussion, giving a basic introduction to any book, and sharing an overview of the Bible. Whether you’re new to doing ministry or have been doing it for years, you can gain new tools to help connect others with God’s Word.
Activators DBS was created to train you to read the Bible not just for information; but to lay a solid foundation for personal, community and global transformation.
“He has enabled us to be ministers of His new covenant. this is a covenant not of written laws, but of the Spirit. The old written covenant ends in death; but under the new covenant, the Spirit gives life” (2 Cor. 3:6)
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!
