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.

If you are a college student who wants to grow in your knowledge and love for God, and are willing to take a gap year (or even a gap semester), consider joining us this fall, September 14 – November 20th. If you know a student that might be interested in this, please send this post to them.

Room will be limited so apply today! You can find out more and apply at www.bibleimmersion.com.

For commentators: what topics would you want to see covered in a training program like this? What topics are critical for young people to understand?

    is there anyway to do this on line?

      The main point of this program is to take what we learn in the classroom, and through the Bible reading and instantly apply it in the real world, through evangelism and serving the Church. You would have to move here for the ten weeks in order to gain the full effect of a program like this.

    Sounds like an incredible opportunity

    Jordan, that sounds like a great program! I became saved by reading through the Bible in 30 days and I can’t tell you how beneficial that was in relation to connecting the Old Testament to the New, as well as my understanding of redemption and evangelism. It was like seeing a beautiful story unfold before my eyes. I was so excited to come to Revelation to see how it all ends. After 18 years, I’m still working on that book. 😉

    May your program be a blessing and a transformation to everyone who undertakes this journey into God’s amazing story.

    I like this effort Jordan — feed the young with the most important thing given to mankind. It’s a blessing.
    “What topics would you want to see covered in a training program like this? What topics are critical for young people to understand?”

    I would say the vital necessity of the influence of the Holy Spirit; and the acquisition of the heavenly gift, as in John 3:3. Nicodemus wasn’t the only one who didn’t comprehend spiritual things; though he knew the practical things very well. Understanding the spiritual aspects of theology will keep them in the fold for life.

    Thanks,
