Spiritual Formation and Berean Bible Lab (ME700)

Spiritual Formation is about growing in Christ.  The emphasis will focus on how people grow and develop spiritually by meditating and reading the Word of God. The class’s emphasis will be on the basic spiritual disciplines such as prayer, growing in faith, sharing your faith, and your daily walk with the LORD. When we understand how we grow spiritually, believers will become more intentional in their use of time, talent, and resources to work out their salvation (Philippians 2:12-13) to the glory of God. The course is a graduation requirement for all DBTI students. The seven-week sessions are offered each Fall and Spring. Bible coaches and facilitators will help encourage students to stay on course in reading through the Scripture.
