Ten years ago, my life was a mess. My parents had separated. I had just graduated high school and didn’t know what was next for me. I didn’t have any purpose or plan for my life.
But something changed all that.
I went to a ten-week Bible school in Italy where I read the entire Bible. There I studied the Bible with other young adults, I made lifelong friendships, and I got to do evangelism for the first time in my life. God used that school to transform my life.
Now I want to take that experience I had in Italy, and replicate it at my own church.
This year at Immanuel Bible Church (in the Washington DC area), we are launching a ten-week Bible school called the Foundry Bible Immersion.
In ten weeks we will read through the entire Bible together. We will have classroom time with Immanuel Bible Church pastors and missionaries who will introduce us to subjects like evangelism, theology, Church history, global missions, and Biblical counseling.
In addition to Bible study and classroom teaching, every day will be packed with real-world evangelism, ministry, and service projects right here in our nation’s capital.
My life was changed through a school just like this. The friendships I made with Christians just like me, who have become passionate about Jesus and serving His church, will last for the rest of my life.
