I’ve been accepted to the YWAM School of Biblical Studies online program!
I wrote to you earlier in the year about applying for this school. I just received an e-mail today letting me know I’ve been accepted.
The school is an intense Bible study course focused on pressing deep into Biblical passages, meanings, history, and key words and teaching students how to share God’s Word effectively with others.
The SBS is normally offered at locations throughout the world as a nine-month course. However, the e-SBS course allows a little more time to complete since it is designed for people like me who are at home with their families and working in localized ministries.
The course consists of 17 modules. Students are allowed up to six weeks to complete each module. Students also can pay for each module as they go. I wrote in an earlier newsletter that I’m seeking sponsors for each module, which cost between (approximately) $50 and $150 each. The entire course will cost (approximately) $1,797. Costs for each module are listed here on the e-SBS Website. Note that costs are listed in British pounds; I have converted the total cost to U.S. dollars. U.S. residents pay Category A costs.
I have raised $500 toward my financial goal. Thank you! If you would like to sponsor a module or the remaining costs ($1,297) of the course, please visit our Sponsor Us page to learn how you can send a payment. I will begin the course this week, so reaching the financial goal soon is important to keeping on track with the program. Thank you in advance!
What Will be Gained from Completing the SBS?
The SBS is an in-depth study of the Bible. Students can read through the Bible cover to cover as much as five times during the SBS!
Completing this course will not only give me a better understanding of the Bible, but it will show me how to present it to others through teaching and even preaching.
I will be eligible to join the SBS online staff and continue my full-time missions work from Oklahoma or even join one of YWAM’s existing SBS bases across the globe, if God calls us to do that.
Either way, I’m excited to press deeper into God’s Word, and I thank you for doing your part to advance the Kingdom.
