YWAM Worcester

Offered in: English

The xBCC is a second-level course registered with the University of the Nations College of Christian Ministries. This course meets the UofN Core Curriculum requirements for the Bible. This 12-week intensive course equips students with tools to study the Bible inductively following the steps of prayer, observation, interpretation, application and proclamation. Leaving behind preconceived ideas, students approach Scripture as detectives – observing evidence that allows Scripture to speak to them, rather than imposing their ideas on the text. In studying the Bible inductively, we recognise that Scripture was originally written to a particular audience – and that audience wasn’t us! The Bible was written for us, but not to us. As we understand more about the culture and history of the people to whom Scripture was originally addressed, and what the text would have meant to them, we can more faithfully apply Biblically sound interpretations to our own lives, today. During the course of the xBCC, students will read through the entire Bible and study a selection of books, covering different biblical genres, from both the Old Testament and the New Testament. Students will also dramatise the book of Proverbs on a weekly basis and creatively engage with the Psalms on a weekly basis. Students will learn the skills to effectively communicate God’s Word through preaching, teaching and facilitating a small group Bible study. The “x factor” of the school seeks to incorporate a creative aspect, catering to different learning styles and encouraging students to express what they have learnt in a creative, sensorial way.
