What is a Discipleship Bible School?
The DBS is an intensive 12-week study of the Bible, which is designed for students who enjoy learning through group discussion and activities. You will study alongside Bible scholars; read, hear and discuss the entire Bible using the SourceView format in mentored small groups; observe the chronology of biblical events; understand each book in its historical context; understand the harmony between the books; recognize the different genres of literature; and know each book’s main idea and purpose. You will learn the foundational truths of Christianity by going directly to the source, equipping you to share your faith more confidently with those who are seeking (evangelism) and to explain the Word of God more accurately to those who have already come to faith (discipleship).

Why do a DBS?

Do you have a desire to know God and make Him known to others? Are you looking for a life-transforming encounter with God? The Discipleship Bible School (DBS) offers you an exciting 3 months of engaging with the scriptures in ways you might have not experienced before through reading and studying it. In the DBS, the bible will come alive for you. You will be able to read all the 66 books and also understand the historical context of each of these books. You will be able to do this in the company of like-minded people, in a non-threatening environment that allows you to explore, ask questions, share your thoughts and be challenged to take the truths you are learning to others. We have different communities around us that are hungry to learn the scriptures so you will be able to take what you are learning and share it with others. The stories in the bible are not just random stories so in the DBS you will discover the chronology of bible events and also recognize the different genres of literature in the bible like narratives, wisdom literature, prophesy, gospels etc. A combination of committed staff members and experienced lecturers will make your 3 months journey with us worthwhile.

Why Muizenberg?
Muizenberg, a beach-side suburb of Cape town is famous for its long, wide and sandy beaches. This makes it a hot spot for surfing, kite surfing and land sailing. Muizenberg is situated where the shore of the cape peninsula curves round to the east on the False Bay coast. It has the ocean and mountains and you will be spoilt with the spectacular beauty of both in one glance.

Our Muizenberg base is a melting pot of cultures. We often have over 30 nationalities represented on our base at any given time. This creates a dynamic environment that increases our ability to gain God’s heart for the nations and also creates endless opportunities to learn from one another. If you are looking for a vibrant environment characterized by cultural and linguistic diversity, then Muizenberg base is your place.
