How can you establish a School of the Bible in your church?
In recent years, many local churches have established a School of the Bible to provide helpful training for their people and for those in their community. Each of these schools operates in affliliation with Crown College of the Bible, yet each is under the authority of a local church and under the direction of its pastor. These affiliate schools take on a regional name that identifies them with the area in which they are located. For more information on starting a regional School of the Bible:
The School of the Bible is a non-credit program designed to help believers increase and deepen their understanding of the Bible and prepare them for ministry in their local church. The School of the Bible is not included in the accreditation process governed by Transnational Association of Colleges and Schools (TRACS).
