Discipleship Bible School


Join the Cause

Millions of people don’t have access to the Word of God. We have a plan to produce and distribute the Bible in every language for every people group until every nation is transformed by the Word. We believe that everyone in the Kingdom of God has a role in ending Bible poverty and our goal is help you find your place.
Following DBS lecture phase many join our “End Bible Poverty Now” outreaches.

A Journey in the Story of God


Being a Christian means to be identified as a follower of Christ. How better to know our Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit than by committing to studying the Word?

Have you ever wondered why we still have the Old Testament? Does the Law mean anything to us today? Why does the modern world need the Bible? Have you ever felt downright bored reading the Bible but feel like you should get something more from it? And why does God seem angry in the Old Testament but loving in the New Testament?

In DBS we want to help you to grow in your knowledge and understanding of God, His Word, and to answer the many questions that surround it. We will trace His redemptive plan for humanity and learn about His unchanging character and and nature. In DBS we learn together through lectures, small groups & discussions. We invite speakers that teach on all 66 books of the Bible. Our staff, who are passionate about God’s Word & Discipleship, help you grow in your understanding of the Bible and its application to your life.

By the time you finish DBS you will be able to say that you have read the whole Bible, cover to cover, learned to interpret its meaning, and how to apply it to your life, leading to everlasting transformation!

Come and let’s get to know God together through His Written Word!
