Long-term Disciple Bible Studies

Disciple Bible Study

The goal of these studies is more than information about the Bible; the goal is transformation in the lives of the participants. Each class reads and discusses assigned Biblical passages, hears from scholars via video, prays together, enjoys fellowship and is challenged to let the experiences form them into active disciples of Christ. Participants covenant together to be faithful in their preparation and attendance. Students are asked to pay for materials; some scholarship help is available.

Room 20

Disciple: Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study

(Disciple I)

Led by Pastor Stuart Salvatierra and Rev. Helen Schlinder

An overview of the entire Bible. The study gives the Old and New Testaments equal time, emphasizing the wholeness of the Bible as a revelation of God. DISCIPLE draws upon the work of scholars, the personal Bible reading and study of the participant, and dynamic
group discussion to aid understanding of the Bible.
