Berean School of the Bible

What is Berean School of the Bible?

Berean School of the Bible (BSB) is our adult continuing education program. As such, BSB courses do not earn college credit but do earn continuing education units. BSB offers ministry training designed to prepare you to fill a church leadership role and to help you fulfill the call of God on your life.

Students receive 100% uniformity and consistency in course delivery both online and offline. So whether you are looking to fulfill your AG credentialed education requirements or to enrich your life, our BSB program is ideal for you.
