School of Biblical Studies

As followers of Jesus, we believe in the importance of knowing and understanding the Word of God on a deeper level, and that every individual have that opportunity to learn how to study, discover, and apply the truths of God's Word to their own lives. The School of Biblical Studies (SBS) is a nine-month course in which students study all […]View School Page

Choose Joy

One of the things that I really appreciate about God is his joy, and that he gives it in all circumstances. I think the joy of a Christian can be a very attractive thing to the world. People are caught off guard when they see a person full of joy in the midst of a very hard […]

What’s The Deal With The Trinity?

BELIEVING IN THE TRINITY AFFECTS ETERNITY Have you ever asked yourself “What in the world do I need theology for?” Do we really need more theoretical knowledge to fill our heads with? Theology is not just the theoretical opinions of a bunch of grey-haired, dusty scholars arguing over whose interpretation of a given Bible passage is the “right” […]

I Love Making Announcements

One of my favorite parts about being a Session Leader in the School of Biblical Studies is making announcements during the first first five minutes of each class… and if I’m being honest the announcements usually take me closer to 10 minutes because I’m having fun, probably more fun than a person should have while making announcements. Don’t get […]

We Are All Counselors

We are all counselors. Christians and non-Christians alike, in every word and deed, provide counsel to another of either righteousness or wickedness. Though not everyone holds a master’s degree or Ph.D., all Christians are empowered by the Great Physician. The process of becoming well trained in our righteous counsel comes from studying the scriptures, and […]

Emotions – A Biblical Perspective

Importance of a Biblical Worldview In today’s prevailing society, we have a greater influx of worldviews and standpoints than we have ever have had before. Whether through synthetic cultural significances, faulty presuppositions, or biblical misunderstandings, duplicity and error are mines in the battlefield of man’s mind. In these times, only the word of God exudes […]

Reunion Not Worthy to Compare

We’ve all been there: especially as YWAMers we are all too familiar with growing to love people just for the season to end, leaving people and people leaving us; saying goodbye to people we love is hard. When we are separated from these people – we can’t help but miss them: it’s natural to groan […]

In Praise of Brokenness

The past felt hard but the worst was yet to come. Thank God I was oblivious to this fact. In the exact middle, between hurt and more hurt, I ventured off to a 9-month, intensive, Biblical Studies program. I wanted the learning for my future career in ministry but needed it for my own personal […]

Transition – Standing on the Solid Rock

As one starts out in life, in the real world of adulthood post-college, life could be described simply as transitional. It’s the transition from studying to working, from borrowing to paying, from renting to owning, and from flakiness to commitment. It’s a time where one is already an adult, but not yet living out the […]

Always Good

Sometimes in our lives we are faced with circumstances that would not be considered our ideal. When we plan out what we want our lives to look like, seldom it includes walking through difficult things, and actually seldom our plan includes even moments that are among the greatest we have lived. I don’t know of […]

Perseverance: Stand up Saints

I write all of this as a biblical christian. One whom desires and seeks foundational truth in scripture, that will help edify us all to persevere and give glory to God along the journey. There is a modern day notion that has been carried through the centuries. In which, as a born again christian you […]
