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 )

This seminar is run in conjunction with CHR 225, Bible School for the Nations,  which studies God's story and His perspective of the world as revealed in the Word of God.  The seminar pulls the principles from the Bible to discover the Biblical worldview and to help discern inaccurate views, which hold cultures in bondage. We also look at the impact of the Church and missions work through the Reformation. We have a major focus on identifying and applying biblical principles in every sphere of society.

Discipleship Training School (DTS) ( DSP 211 )

This school is an intensive Christian discipleship course beginning with a 12-week lecture/teaching phase followed by an 8 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: The Bible, Who is God and how do we have a relationship with Him; In The Beginning - God's intention for all mankind; What Went Wrong - Sin, redemption through Christ, and Spiritual Warfare; New Beginning - New Life and Identity in Christ and the Family of God; Becoming Like Christ - Individual purpose in expanding the Kingdom of God. Each school will focus on one sphere of society, a people group, or a societal issue to learn about and apply the teachings of the lecture phase in order to practically expand the Kingdom of God in that area. Personal development and life skills will also be emphasized throughout the school. Credit will be given for this course with satisfactory completion of DSP 212.
