Bible Institutes for Small Group Studies 
in Biblical Higher Education

Starting your Bible Institute will be simple using the step-by-step guidelines found in your Launch Kit.  

Program Overview

Simply stated; the pastor/teacher (who serves as instructor) will present a lecture using the Bible Institute materials and then assign several pages  to be completed in the student workbook.

Or, the pastor/teacher can conduct a distance learning school from the church. Students do self-directed studies and meet to share and discuss.

This program goes beyond typical Bible studies in that there is additional study required of the student as well as assessment and feedback of the student learning. Your students can even go on to earn a Bible degree from Patriot Bible University without leaving your church!.

Using these courses will reward you with growing disciples stepping into leadership thereby strengthening the local church. The courses have been expertly prepared and organized to take a Believer from new convert to disciple to worker. 

How Is The Instruction Delivered?

Flexibility Is The Byword....

Option: Self-Directed Study Format: 

The curriculum is designed for self-paced, self-directed study. The classroom is used more as a laboratory for practicing what students have learned in their books.

Students gather weekly or monthly to share what they have learned or raise questions for group settings. The teacher becomes a discussion facilitator for the student group.

Group meetings start in prayer and worship followed by a pastor-led devotional. Students share what they have learned in their course. Students need not take the same course - they can study a course of their choice. Students who share will gain valuable teaching experience and listening students will be learning in these discussions. 

This process is the core of any vocational pursuit of ministry!

Option: Lecture & Classroom Format: 

Popular classroom schedules include:

Monday or Tuesday evening:
   Class #1- 7-7:55
   Class #2- 8-8:55

Some churches offer a class during Sunday School and another before the evening service. Others use Wednesday night for a class before or after Prayer Meeting.

Other churches have also set up extra "seminar-style" courses with a single class meeting for three hours on Saturday, then coming back several weeks later (with the workbook completed) for a final 3-hour session. Others do one class at a time, meeting for two-hours per session three times. 

Regardless of the schedule, each class should meet for a total of six hours, and all workbook assignments must be completed.
