Training
Equipping believers in the bay and around the world.

 

At PBC we place a high value on equipping believers in the knowledge of God’s Word and techniques for studying the Scriptures. We also want to equip those that feel called to teach with solid skills to do so with integrity and accurate information. We accomplish this through our weekly sermons, 2-year intern program, Bible studies, discipleship groups, and classes held throughout the year. Browse our current offerings below.   

DISCIPLE FOUNDRY

Two Year Program

Disciple Foundry (formerly known as our Intern Program) began in the 1970s as Scribe School.  The two-year program is geared toward those who wish to go deeper into the word and to have a taste of seminary-like content. The program offers 2 courses per quarter. Courses include theology and exegesis and can also be audited by those not able to commit to the full two-year program. Find out more about the program and application process HERE. Pastor: [email protected]

PURSUING CHRIST – ENGAGING CULTURE

Discussion Groups & Studies

This academic year, we will be focusing on cultural issues, including politics, race, and sexuality. We intend to learn how we can have healthy, Christ-centered conversations about these often controversial topics. Join us throughout the year for various discussion groups & studies.

FALL 2020: Several small groups will begin meeting in September to learn about political conversation. The groups will be going through a ten week curriculum that involves discussion, learning, and prayer practices all designed to help followers of Jesus have Christ-centered discussions of political topics.
