School Year 2017/18
Spring semester: 7 January – 14 July 2018
Next intake is 2 April 2018
This is our third year as a church-based bible college. The evaluations and experiences from the first two years have helped to bring even better content!
Start of the year
The first week is an introduction to the school, our values, the city, the local church, practicalities, etc. Immediately on the first Friday we take part in ‘Kulturnatten’, a yearly event in the town centre. The following week we’ll be on boot camp, a lovely camp right at the seaside (and whilst more shall not be revealed here, there will be surprises in store!) This time, Mark Collard from Equippers Church, London, will be joining us. He’s known as a brilliant communicator and he loves hanging out with young people, sharing life together.
In November, we’ll visit different missional churches in groups and as much as possible take part in their ministries. It will be a week where we use what we have learnt whilst we get inspired by the ways in which other churches reach out to their communities.
In February 2018, we plan to go to New Zealand for two weeks. We will be working together with local churches and Bible colleges, become inspired and learn from their experiences. At the same time it will be an opportunity to experience an amazing culture and beautiful nature in the best season of the year.
The teachers at the school consist of both the daily staff and guest lecturers from Denmark and abroad. The subjects that run throughout the year, such as communication, Biblical study methods, music, sport, supernatural and more, are taught by the school’s own teachers. The pastors from Kirkeibyen (the local Apostolic Church) are teaching leadership tools every week.
The subjects are all meant to continue lifelong learning, enabling you to pass on the knowledge you gain here. We also believe in the supernatural dimension being normal for a Christian life. Therefore, we cultivate the supernatural in many ways throughout the year.
Church involvement – hands on
On top of the daily teaching at the school, all students are involved in church ministry in the local apostolic church, Kirkeibyen. It is a great opportunity to turn theory into practice, to get to know more people and not least to learn from those already leading different areas in the church. It is a chance to work with your greatest interest, whether it’s kids, teens, social work, planning of events, etc.
During the year there will also be opportunities to visit other churches and youth groups.
And much more
Furthermore, we will have theme weeks and seminar days that are open for participation (by registration).
We will spend a few Sundays visiting other churches and sharing about the school, and about what God is doing in our lives.
Other than that, of course, we go to the beach, to cafés, attend youth events, meet missionaries, family evenings, inspiration nights and much more.
