Announcing the Michigan Bible School
The elders of the Church of Christ - West wish to announce the Michigan Bible School (MBS).
While there is a cost to the students for books, the school is a tuition-free program of Biblical Studies for men and women. Classes meet at the Church of Christ - West facilities in Plymouth, MI. The school functions under the oversight of the eldership of the Church of Christ - West and is co-directed by George Beals and John Natiw.
History of the Michigan Bible School
The Michigan Bible School was concieved in the fall of 2002 to address a great need in the brotherhood. MBS is designed to provide Biblical teaching with no cost for tuition. Co-Directors George Beals and John Natiw, under the oversight of the Church of Christ-West elders, began a pilot semester in January of 2003. Since then, the school has increased to offering up to two classes per semester and has been blessed with additional instructors, Charles Coats and James Barnes.
The school has exhibited a far-reaching effect in the area brotherhood. Students have come from such area congregations as Garden City, Saline, Clio, Linwood, Farmington Hills, Holford St., Waynecourse, Brighton, North Broadway, Chelsea and others. Our hope is that with your prayers, much hard work and the Lord's blessing, the school will flourish and become a greater influence toward good and the work of the Lord.
The Need for This Effort
The need for a school of this sort can be plainly seen today in the area brotherhood. Brethren have limited educational options when it comes to sound, in-depth Biblical teaching. While we expect current and future preachers would be interested in this type of academic enterprise, a much broader student base is being targeted: Bible-school teachers, leaders in the Church, those interested in personal enrichment, beginning level or experienced students, men and women alike who wish to increase their Biblical knowledge and prepare for additional work and responsibility in the Church.
