Course Overview

At The Incredible Journey Bible College, we aim to train people to be effective witnesses for God in a short time. During the course, we will train you in all aspects of public and personal evangelism. We plan to accomplish this by including both theoretical and practical components in the course.

The course theory is covered by college classes six days a week. During these classes, you will study the theory of evangelism from a Bible-based standpoint. Evangelism is only effective when you have a solid foundation to evangelise from. To ensure that you have that solid foundation you will also have classes that cover a variety of Bible topics in-depth. These include Bible doctrines, Prophetic Interpretation, Prophetic Guidance and Community Health Education. These classes will give you an opportunity to know the Biblical foundation of the Seventh-day Adventist Church teachings.

Theory is only useful when it is put into practice. In the practical part of the program, you will have the opportunity to go out into the local community and practice what you have learned in class. From the second or third week of the program onward, you will participate in outreach activities at least two days a week. These activities will include door-knocking and giving Bible studies to people in the community. The prospect of knocking on a stranger’s door may sound intimidating, but the things you have learned in the classes will help you feel more confident about sharing your faith with others. You will also have the opportunity to go to the doors with experienced Bible workers who can help you to improve your witnessing skills.

These community outreach efforts are in preparation for a three- or four-week public evangelistic series that will be held near the end of the term. Leading into the evangelistic meetings, you will apply your health training by assisting in various programs such as depression recovery expos, stop-smoking clinics and cooking classes.

The evangelistic meetings are the most exciting part of the program. By participating in activities, you as students will gain valuable experience in the many different aspects needed to hold an effective evangelistic program. The high point of the Bible College experience will be seeing those you have been studying with come to the evangelistic meetings and make decisions for Christ.

At The Incredible Journey Bible College, we offer a well-rounded and balanced view of Bible-based evangelism. By the time you graduate, you will have received classroom instruction that covers both the theory of evangelism and the Biblical foundations of the Seventh-day Adventist church. You will have had the opportunity to put what you have learned into practice in many ways: through door-knocking, health ministry and public evangelistic meetings. This approach means that at The Incredible Journey Bible College, you can learn in just a few months, what might otherwise take years to accomplish.

Whether being active in your local church while continuing a regular job, or going into full time ministry, studying the course at The Incredible Journey Bible College will equip you to share Jesus Christ with a world in need.
