The expectation of an SBS student is to commit to a full time intensive studying and applying the word of God in community events and practical ministries.
During the school, students will be working, studying, and living in a community of fellow students who are on a journey through the Bible together. They will survey each book and discover the big picture, while also digging into the details paragraph by paragraph. Emphasis is placed on understanding the cultural and historical background of each author and original reader of a book. The student will be interpreting Scripture with the mindset of the original reader, then they will take the timeless truths and apply them personally.
Students will have opportunities to live out what they are learning; this is not a school of simply head knowledge, but also of practical application. As a community, we have the joy of gathering for times of worship, intercession, celebration and evangelism. We will also have weekend trips to visit selected sites that were significant to the Reformation in Europe led by Luther and Calvin.
SBS staff members will meet weekly with the students to aid in their personal growth, understanding of Scripture, and application of the inductive method.
