School of Biblical Studies

**Prerequisite: The successful completion of a DTS (Discipleship Training School).

The School of Biblical Studies (SBS) is a 9-month, in-depth inductive study of the Bible with a goal to establish a strong foundation in the Word.

As you learn to observe, interpret, and apply the Bible here at The Kings Lodge you will have the opportunity to engage in discussion with people of various backgrounds. This will help expand your perspective of the world and how the Bible relates to it. It’s a great opportunity to increase your knowledge of the Bible, while also growing in your understanding of the character and nature of God!

Lecture Phase

During your nine months here, you will read all 66 books of the Bible five times through. This thorough study will give you a broad view of the entire Bible, from Genesis to Revelation.

You will be able to speak knowledgeably on the historical and cultural context, structure, theme, and purpose of each book. As many already have, you will see your life transformed by God and His Word! What’s better, you will be hungry for so much more!

This course aims to transform your life, not just fill your head with facts. It’s a study that aims to shift your thinking, character, relationships, and impact on the world. As you interact with the Author and His living, active Word, you will discover a whole new aspect of God and His purpose for mankind. 

We encourage trainees to consider after their school to stay on as SBS staff here at the Lodge for the next SBS! Join a growing team of SBS graduates, who mentor students as they go through the SBS. This opportunity will give you the chance to explore and develope your teaching, leadership, and mentoring skills. Visit our Staff page below to contact us with questions or to apply!

***The departure date is NOT the date of the commissioning. The commissioning will be the day before meaning that the school runs from Arrival date-day before departure date.

Note: Applicants should not see the SBS as a way to learning English! You should be able to comfortably give your testimony in English and be able to write it down without the help of a dictionary. You should be able to read the Bible in English. Of course your English will inevitably improve over the course of the 9 months but please be aware that this is a Bible Study course – not an English Language school.
