The Bible is the Word of God and is full of treasures waiting to be discovered. But in daily life this is not always easy. How can you get deeper?
The Bible Summer Course helps you to get a better grip on the Bible and deepen your relationship with God. At our beautiful location next to the forests and heather fields of the Veluwe you will learn to use the Bible in your daily life through a variety of activities.
You will get a better view of God’s story and your place in it. You will read some Bible books in their entirety and practice skills to study a Bible book.
This year we will focus on the Gospel of Mark and discover what it has to say about following Jesus.

The course starts with getting to know one another on Saturday afternoon. On Sunday we will give you an overview of both the Old and the New Testament. Through this teachig you get an better overview of God’s Story and how the different books of the Bible relate to that.
On Monday until Friday we practice our Bible study skills and have lecture about the Gospel of Mark. In these sessions we have different activities that will help you to understand the book better and apply it into your own life.
In the mornings we will also have other activities in which you read for instance a short Bible book in its entirety and talk about the themes that the book addresses. We will also practice Bible meditation, an approach that you can use in your personal time with God.
Next to classes we will also join the Heidebeek worship and intercession times. The other afternoons and evenings are for leisure time and making some assignments. We will also have an outing to a lake close by our base.

Meet the Staff
Hey, I'm Bart. Studying the Bible is all about pursuing God. That's why I am also enthusiastic about our ministries. I am looking forward to dig together in God's Word to discover more of His heart and get in awe of Him.
I also enjoy playing soccer, biking through the forest and drinking coffee with friends.
Hey Hallo, nearly seven years I may work with Youth with a Mission. After my DTS I followed the SBS and that has captured my heart. I find it amazing to see others grow as they go through school or courses, grow in faith, make choices that make them grow and flourishing in God's plan for their lives. and I believe that the Bible plays a major role in getting to know God better.
Hi, my name is Seraina. Like every swiss I love cheese and chocolate. Even more than that I enjoy spending time with friends, I’m always up for a cup of coffee. But truly heart beats for the nations and teaching the Bible and that’s why I’m part of Bible for Life.
After being out of the country for some years I have grown even more fond of my flat, wet, green, homeland with it’s many cows and bikes. It's good to be back! Discovering the School of Biblical Studies (SBS) was a total surprise for me and doing it an absolute privilege. I am looking forward to share with others what has been given to me by staffing BFL.
