Discipleship Bible School

The overwhelming majority of Christians have never read the entire Bible.

About the course

Many of those who attend Bible colleges learn methods of studying scripture, but aren't guided in putting those techniques to use on the text. The Discipleship Bible School provides an opportunity for students to read through God's word and practice techniques for understanding it based on its original context. Students who complete the course will learn to view the books of the Bible as part of a unified story and discover their place in that story. Most importantly, they will recognize the unchanging character of God throughout history.

What Happens in this course?

Port YWAM Kona is a community that is committed to Bible engagement. In addition to DBS, the campus runs the Chronological Bible Core Course, the Oral Bible Translation school and Logos — an advanced course that exposes students to expert-level resources regarding the literary, historical and cultural background of the Bible. More than a third of Port YWAM's staff have completed a Bible school through YWAM or university studies. It is a community dedicated to eradicating Bible illiteracy among its own members before doing the same on the mission field.

Training Phase (3 months)

In this 12-week introduction to the Bible, the student will be given an overview of “God’s story” and will discover the purposes of God in it.

The student will read the entire Bible, observe the chronology of biblical events, better understand each book in its historical context, understand the harmony between the books, be able to recognize the different genres of literature, and major themes found in these 66 books. The student will learn the foundational truths of Christianity by going directly to the source.
