Developed Chinese Bible Study Program (CBSC)
This program consists of 66 Books of the Bible, divided into 3 phases of studies
Each phase consists of 10 courses with homework
Each course lasts for 12 weeks
Each week study is a two-hour session
First hour the group leaders will lead discussion and sharing of the homework students have done
Second hour students watch my MP4 messages (pre-recorded) in either Mandarin or Cantonese.
There are 360 Mandarin messages and 360 Cantonese messages in the CBSC programs.
Students depended on their own dialect, can enroll in either the Mandarin or Cantonese program. Class leader (local pastor, or church leader) will apply for the Bible Courses.
BEI will approve their application.
We train the class and group leaders to do discussion and sharing of answers. They do pre-study, normally a few days before the actual class. Each student will have to do homework (8-9 pages of study questions) before coming for class discussion.
Presently we have about 50,000 students enrolled in the CBSC program.
