Bible School

Discover how
Jesus Christ lives
in and through
the Christian

Our Bible school programs provide foundational teaching and practical training to live the authentic Christian life. You can spend a gap year at Bible school or choose from several shorter-term options.

What can you expect?

At Bible school, you will go on many adventures, develop meaningful friendships, have a lot of fun and be stretched in many ways. That’s why many students spend their gap year at Bible school. But the most important experience you can have is to encounter the Lord Jesus and deepen your relationship with Him and learn what it means to live life with God. As you walk with Jesus, expect your life to be changed as you experience Him working in and through you.

We believe that as we study God’s Word we encounter the living Lord Jesus. You will receive practical Bible teaching and learn to study the Scriptures for yourself – with the aim of knowing Christ and understanding God’s truth and its relevance for your life.


Participate in an intentional community of people who have discovered their need of Jesus and are pursuing Him. Develop meaningful relationships with students from different countries and backgrounds. Be discipled by staff who have developed a living relationship with Christ.

Practical Training

Our faith and relationship with Christ are meant to be lived out in the world. You will have opportunities to put into practice what you are learning in class as you serve one another and participate in outreach in the local community.

Some centers offer Bible programs with unique focuses


As you grow in Christ, learn to lead others through one of our leadership or second-year Bible school programs.

Outdoor Adventure

Torchbearers outdoor adventure programs are designed to challenge and develop you spiritually, mentally and physically.


Bible school programs that have a greater emphasis on outreach and practical training within a cross-cultural setting

What our students thought

  • Jesus is not a God who doesn't care, just living up in heaven. He does care for each one of us and comes down to earth to live in us.

  • The teaching was incredibly personal. I was able to get to know Jesus myself and take away a personal knowledge and relationship with Him.
