Bible Core Course (YWAM-BCC)
Dig Deeper into the Word!
The BCC is a 14-week course that will introduce you to an inductive approach of Biblical study. The course equips you with tools for understanding and integrating the Word into your life by employing creative methods for observing, interpreting, applying and proclaiming the Scriptures.
An inductive study involves trying to lay down any preconceived ideas, bridging culture and time gaps in order to discover the author’s intent. During the course you will read through the entire Bible and study in depth at least 14 books, being introduced to multiple forms of literature in the Old and New Testaments.
