The Bible Core Course (BCC) is three months away, and we’d love to invite you to apply! If you’ve been sitting on the fence about whether or not to take a season in life to study the Bible, then we’d encourage you to go for it! This is a fantastic opportunity we don’t want you to miss out on!
This will be our second time running the BCC here at YWAM Newcastle, Australia and we are beyond stoked for this next school. We saw God do amazing things through the course last year, and we’re so excited to see what God will do in people’s hearts and lives this upcoming school! We believe that when people get to know God through His Word, great things happen.
The reality is, when you gain a foundation in the Truth, you will naturally start to live your life from a foundation of truth.
During my DTS God showed me I was like dirt or soil. At first I had no idea what He meant by this and honestly wasn’t sure if I was hearing God’s voice correctly. I was later reminded of the parable of the sower in Luke 8:4-8, where Jesus compares those who hear the truth to different types of soil and suddenly it clicked. God was telling me I was the good soil! God continued to speak into this and it became the theme of my season during BCC.
God used the Bible Core Course to do some “weeding”, “tilling”, and “plowing” to make the soil good and ready for new things to be planted in me. I’ll be honest, it was an intensely hard but beautiful time.
As I learned the truth of God’s character for myself, I was challenged to align my beliefs and life around who God really is, and not who I had thought He was.
And let me tell you, God’s character and love are incredibly better than I ever imagined it to be!
Getting to know God’s character for myself changed my life and faith! My relationship with God went from being based on what I had heard from others about God, to being based on who I saw Him to be personally after spending a season intensely studying the Bible.
I truly believe the Bible Core Course is an amazing spring-board into a life spent loving God, and others well.
I’ll leave you with some questions to ask yourself…
Do you have a desire to grow in intimacy in your relationship with God?
Do you long to truly get to know God’s character through His Word?
Do you want to be given the tools you need for interpreting the Bible correctly on your own?
Do you dream of having the accountability you need to read through the entire Bible?
Do you seek to get practical training in preaching, teaching and leading small group Bible studies?
If that sounds like you, then it’s time to apply!
