One year, one book, for one purpose
The Bible School program exists to lead students into relationship with the Lord Jesus through studying God’s Word, relationships, and outdoor adventure. The weekly schedule consists of in-class Bible training, worship, small groups, outdoor activities, community fellowship and outreach opportunities.
Build long-lasting relationships
Students have the opportunity to learn and grow in a community is centered around Christ. In community is where valuable lessons learned in the classroom are experienced as students live together and serve one another. Students also grow by going through challenges and working together on a team while on outreach and serving in the community. Relationships formed at Bible school often end up being life-long friendships.
Adventure the outdoors
Living in the Rocky Mountains for one year, you will have many opportunities for adventures. Ravencrest organizes activities such as hiking, climbing and snow-shoeing throughout the year but we encourage you to initiate outings into the park or overnight camping trips on the weekends together. The outdoors is a different kind of classroom where you can learn a lot about God our Creator, yourself, and how you relate to Him and with others.
Christ-Centered Bible Teaching
The Bible school program includes around sixteen classes each week. That’s over 400 hours of Bible teaching in one year! Classes are taught by Ravencrest staff and guest teachers. You will go deeper into various books of the Bible as well as cover different theological topics and contemporary issues of Christian living through lectures, discussion times, assignments, and personal study time.
What Students Say
Ravencrest gave me a time and a place to spend with the Lord. I wanted to have a place where I could just say "Jesus you are everything to me" and to really focus on our relationship. I came to Bible School with all this history, and now I say "Lord I believe in you and you sustained me." There is no strength physically, there is no stability, only Christ. Ravencrest allowed me to create a space where it was just me and God. It wasn't Ravencrest that changed me, but it created an opportunity to dive into all of who He is.
While I was attending Taurenhof, I felt God was calling me deeper to learn about him. While at Ravencrest, I've seen God bring out my leadership qualities among the student body and community in general. I've been called to lead prayer events, and to go out of my way to ask people how they're doing and to know them better. Being here has caused me to ask the question "Why don't I do this at home?". In short, Ravencrest has given me a desire to know God more. It blows me away how much God loves me, he is my builder and my sustainer.
"I came out of Ravencrest with an abundance of knowledge of the Bible, and practical application to apply to my life back home. I've met other brothers and sisters in Christ that I'll have for a lifetime and always share this unique experience with. The staff reach out to you and show you they care about the most important thing in your life, which is your relationship with Christ."
"Learning about the Lord in the setting of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado has been one of the best experiences of my life. For my first branch of post-secondary education to be Ravencrest, it was the perfect place for me to be grounded in the truth of Jesus Christ and will help me build my relationship with Him for a lifetime. The simple and yet most outstanding truth Christ has taught me this year is that "Christ lives in me." Now I want to share His love that He shared with me."
POSSIBLE TOPICS COVERED DURING THE YEAR:
· Old Testament books
· New Testament books
· Church history
· Biblical Counseling
Every term you will have classes that vary and will cover multiple books from the Old Testament and New Testament. Our hope is to cover a multitude of different books and types of books (history, poetic, minor/major prophet, gospels, letters etc.). This will help our students grow in their understanding of God’s Word but also teach them how to study the Bible for themselves.
Our heart is that through studying different books of the bible as well as different theological topics you would grow in your understanding of who God is and what that means for your life! “
