Bible School for the Nations ( CHR 225 )

The BSN Core course is a book-by-book chronological adventure through the Bible. It focuses on knowing God, His message, and His Redeeming Story. We use creative methods of story telling, art and class participation.  The course also includes an intense week of learning Bible Study tools and application.  Students learn to prepare messages with an application of Biblical Principles to transform nations.  This course has a required 3-6 week Seminar (CHR 125) that is given at the beginning or end of the course. This course meets the UofN Core Curriculum requirement for Bible.

Bible School for the Nations Seminar ( CHR 125 )

The purpose of this seminar is to help bring personal as well as missions application to the Bible School for the Nations Course, and is known locally as Discipling the Nations Seminar. The seminar will give the students instruction and strategies to use their study of the Bible to identify underlying presuppositions in societies, so as to bring transformation to individuals and nations. The seminar is also designed to give students a historical perspective of the church and missions and the successes and failures of past movements in the advance of the Kingdom of God.

Discipleship Training School (DTS) ( DSP 211 )

This school is an intensive Christian discipleship course beginning with an 11 or 12-week lecture/teaching phase followed by an 8-12 week practical field assignment. It is a prerequisite for all other courses in the University of the Nations, and also serves to orient and prepare all new Youth With A Mission (YWAM) staff. The DTS is designed to encourage students in personal character development, cultivating their relationship with God and identifying their unique gifts and callings. Cross-cultural exposure and global awareness are special emphases throughout the course, preparing the students to evangelize and disciple current and future generations, answering the call to Go into all the world and teach (make disciples of) all nations; (Matthew 28:19). The curriculum is in the following six major categories: God's nature and character; God's intention for individuals, peoples and nations; seeing all of life from God's perspective; redemption, sin, and the Cross; God's family - the Church; God's world - His call and commission; the ministries of YWAM.

School of the Bible I ( CHR 221 )

This first module of the School of the Bible will deepen the student's affection for the Lord as we study Old Testament history together with the teachings of Jesus on the Kingdom of God to discover Biblical principles which relate to the seven spheres of influence. This course gives practical direction and experience in biblical interpretation, and develops principles of effective preaching and teaching necessary to draw an audience, keep their attention, and communicate God's message to them. It also introduces practical leadership principles. This course, if combined with CHR 322 and  323, meets the U of N Core Curriculum requirement for Bible.

School Of The Bible II ( CHR 322 )

In this second module of the School of the Bible, understanding of the New Testament message is deepened by providing historical and cultural backgrounds, and by noting the authors' emphases in writing to the intended audience. It begins with a study of the Gospels, including the richness of the parables of Jesus. The Acts and the Epistles come alive as they are studied in chronological sequence. Valuable insights are gained from a working knowledge of New Testament Greek. This course is not intended to detail every verse of the New Testament, but to provide inspiration, practical principles and help for life, and to develop a biblical base for teaching and preaching. This course, if combined with CHR 221 and CHR 323, meets the UofN Core Curriculum requirement for Bible.

School of the Bible III ( CHR 323 )

In this third module of the School of the Bible, the scope of study extends beyond the book of Acts to observe God's activity in history from the time of the early Church through the age of modern missions. Students will be challenged to apply Biblical principles to practical areas of Christian Ministry and to understand how the unchanging message of the gospel can be planted cross-culturally resulting in transformed lives and nations. We will study scripture to respond to difficult questions that this generation is asking: “If God is good, why is there suffering in the world?”, “Why did Jesus have to die?”, “What about those who have never heard?” Each student will walk away with an unshakable confidence in God's character throughout the course of history and a passion to share His love with this generation. This course, if combined with CHR 221 and CHR 322, meets the U of N Core Curriculum requirement for Bible.

Teacher's Training Course I ( EDN 241 )

The first of three courses (also known as ""Teachers for the Nations"") that prepare a student to work with children at the elementary school level using a methodology known as the Principle Approach. This methodology assists students in examining the history of a nation and learning to write curriculum for any subject, drawing from biblical foundations. The goal is to equip students for developing Christian educational programmes in any nation. Child development, philosophy of history, the use of phonics to teach reading and writing to children and adults, and curriculum development are among the topics included in this course.
