We are starting a School of the Bible in January
The School of the Bible is a Bible training program that helps believers to expand their
understanding of the Bible and to be equipped for ministry in the local church. The school
is designed for members and workers in local churches, including deacons, Sunday School
teachers, youth and children’s workers, Bible study leaders, and many others who simply desire
to deepen their Bible knowledge and increase their effectiveness in serving the Lord.
