Peninsula Bible Church has a long history of diving deep into the Word through courses, internships, seminars, and ministry opportunities.
The Disciple Foundry is a reinstantiation of our long-standing intern program that began in the 1970s as Scribe School. Open to those who wish to go deeper into the word and to have a taste of seminary-like content, the two-year program offers 2 courses per quarter. The courses are taught by PBC’s pastors including Jeff Louie, Scott Grant, Paul Taylor and Dan Westman.
Courses include theology and exegesis and can also be audited by those not able to commit to the full two-year program.
Courses are offered Sunday mornings on a variety of topics.
Equip – held during the second service time, the group reflects on the sermon and what it means to their lives. (10:45 am, Fellowship Hall)
Marriage – Married couples of all ages are invited to a video and discussion series developed by Alpha. Starting Sept 15, The 14-week course covers topics from communication to intimacy to conflict. (10:45 am, The Study)
