You have complete access to our entire first-year Bible Training Institute through our Online Program. The Online Program consists of approximately 30 courses. Each course has eight to ten lessons that are covered at a rate of two lessons per week. The courses are only accessible online; however audio, video, and lesson files can be downloaded and utilized offline at your convenience. We estimate each course will take approximately 8-14 hours to complete. You may sign up for as many courses as you like and complete courses over a 6-8 week schedule. Online classes provide just enough structure to keep you on task, but enough flexibility to work around your schedule. View the Requirements for Completion of First-Year Program.
Each course comes with a lesson outline to accompany the video content. The outline is available as a Web page or as a PDF file.
The main content of the course is found through viewing the video lesson. Each video is recorded live at the Charis Bible College campus in Colorado Springs. Videos are accessible through video streaming, MP3 audio download, and video download.
Upon completion of the lesson, each student will be presented with a question for discussion. Participation in the course requires at least one written response to the topic. After the student posts a response they will be able to view the responses of other students within the class, as well as, feedback from the class facilitator. For each lesson, students are required to respond to at least one comment from a classmate.
Once you finish the first-year program, you will receive a Certificate of Completion. You are then eligible to apply for the second-year Practical Ministry Program at one of our Charis Bible College campuses. The hands-on nature of our second-year program requires students to attend one of CBC's physical locations, day and night classes are available. This program cannot be offered online.
