What is a BSN?
BSN is a six-month-long course designed to take you deeper in your study of the Bible to equip you with the foundation and skills to take it to the ends of the earth. During the Lecture phase, you will gain an understanding of the entire Bible in context as you study the Bible chronologically. Additionally, you’ll grow in your skills as an effective and creative communicator. Over outreach, you will disciple communities by providing culturally relevant and strategic Bible training to those who will influence others.
Equipping Disciples & Leaders
4 Months in Texas, USA
BSN Lecture Phase is set up similarly to DTS, with three months of living in a live/learn community. After completing your first three months, you will engage in a month-long seminar to further your learning. BSN will equip you with various tools to interactively study the Bible to better understand God’s Word in the context of its history, culture, and literary styles. Through this school, you’ll grow in understanding His character, how He brings about His purposes in history, and learn His intentions for each sphere of society.
Lecture Weekly Life
Reaching People, Communities, and Nation
Live Your Purpose
You’ve been transformed by the power of the Word during your time in Lecture. Now, you have the opportunity to touch the nations with that same power. Through your Outreach experience, you’ll disciple communities by providing culturally relevant and strategic Bible training (BELT) to those who will influence others.
You Pray. You Hear. You Plan. You Go. YWAM staff will guide and assist you as you put together your outreach, whether to an existing ministry we’ve worked with or something completely new.
