Are you longing to know God on a much deeper level and more intimately? Do you want a greater knowledge of the word, becoming more like The Word Himself, understand His story of mankind, and growing in the ability to share your faith?

In John 14:6, Jesus says, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” As Christians, our goal is to be more like Jesus. How do we do this? Jesus is the Word (John 1). If we want to become more like Jesus and understand His story then we need to spend time with Him, invest in Him, study Him — study the Word. No matter if you’ve read one page of the Bible or all of it, Discipleship Bible School (DBS) is a safe place to dive into God’s word, seek answers to your questions, or direction for life. One thing is for sure, prepare to receive powerful insight that will enrich your walk with God.


DBS is comprised of three months of studying and classroom lectures, devoted to reading through all 66 books of the Bible in chronological order. In just 12 weeks, you will gain a greater understanding of God’s perspective and heart, leaving you with a lasting hunger for the Word. During this time, you will learn about the historical settings and genre of each book, study specific topics taught by knowledgeable speakers and engage in worship, intercession and small group bible studies. This school will better equip you to absorb and apply the Word of God to your life AND others. DBS is the perfect continuation to what you started in DTS.

OUTREACH (optional)

After gaining a deeper understanding of God’s word and who He is, an optional outreach is available. It will be focused on teaching God’s word to the natives of the nation of Vanuatu, where Marine Reach has planted a ministry, The Family Care Centre. Some Ni-van people are yet to receive a Bible in their native language! This outreach will also provide you with the opportunity to come alongside family and staff members at our Family Care Centre by applying what you have learned through topical bible studies and discipling.

The 12 weeks will consist of reading through all 66 books of the Bible chronologically. You will learn the scriptures through the eyes of the original writer and understand the historical context. Book by book, so much will be revealed to you that will give a transformational understanding of the entire Bible. At the end, you will have a timeline containing an overview of the Bible, key characteristics of God, and personal revelations from the Word.

Each week, you will also engage in lectures and small group study relevant to the books you are currently reading. Daily you will interact with your small group, which will provide an opportunity to gain insight and perspective from others and grow together in community.
