From the Dean of the Berean School of the Bible

Dean of the Berean School of the BibleFollowing God’s leading is the most exciting adventure in our lives. Whether He is calling you to serve as a credentialed minister, a lay leader, or a volunteer in your local church, a surrendered life in His hands allows light to invade darkness, advancing the kingdom of God.

Whatever your unique ministry calling is, preparation is essential, and responsible servants take the time to prepare. Berean School of the Bible will equip you for service through an educational program that is convenient, applicable, and accessible to your life’s schedule.

The Berean program is convenient for students studying individually and for students studying in groups at a local church. Distance learning allows you to study at your own pace, without residential classroom attendance. For students who prefer to study with others, many local churches have established Berean study groups. If your local area does not have a study group, we can tell you how your church can begin one. We even offer Instructional Facilitator Manuals (IFMs) to make it more convenient for local churches to facilitate Berean courses.

We understand that ministry is happening now in your life, so we designed a Berean program applicable to your ministerial context. The concepts and principles you learn from our curriculum will equip you with practical knowledge of the Bible, theology, and ministry. For instance, our service learning requirement component is an opportunity to immediately put what you are learning into action.

You can also access our courses in several different formats. If you enjoy a hard-copy book in your hands, you can order a printed copy of our courses. Or, in the midst of a full work week, you may need your courses on the go. In that case, download our digital courses with the necessary files for your e-reader devices. You can also study online; log in to the Student Portal and access your courses 24 / 7.

We are here to partner with you so that you will be equipped and empowered to do what God has placed on your heart.


In His service,

Rev. Steve Handy
Dean, Berean School of the Bible
