The 40th annual Brethren Bible Institute sponsored by the Brethren Revival Fellowship (BRF) is planned for July 22-26 at Elizabethtown (Pa.) College. At least 11 courses are scheduled, and continuing education units will be available for ordained ministers.
BRF offers the annual Brethren Bible Institute as a one-week school intended to provide systematic instruction in the Bible for any person 16 years of age or older, according to the BRF Witness website. Students may take one, two, or three courses. The cost is the same regardless of how many courses are taken. Students meet for chapel each morning at 8:10 a.m. with classes to follow. The hour and a half classes meet every day, Monday through Friday.
Courses include “Brethren Life and Thought” (part 1 and part 2), “Genesis–Chapters 12-50,” “Biblical Glimpses of Eternity,” “The Book of Esther,” “Money and Finances,” “Judging the Judges,” “Women in the Early Churches,” “Old Testament Survey” (part 1 and part 2), “Ephesians–Chapters 4, 5, and 6,” “How to Study the Bible,” and “Basic Apologetics.”
Continuing education units will be offered for ordained ministers at a rate of one tenth of a unit for each hour spent in class, with each completed course counting as .75 continuing education units. Ministers should request the continuing education certificate when they register. Some courses may apply toward district training programs for licensed ministers.
Instructors for the classes will include Craig Alan Myers, Eric Brubaker, Carl Brubaker, Wilmer Horst, Fred Beam, Daniel Lehigh, John Minnich, Steve Hershey, and Kenneth Leininger, who is the principal coordinator.
Cost for the event is $200, or $70 for commuting students. Scholarship aid is available to students who cannot afford the tuition.
