Bible School

Centuries long tradition of Bible training

The Balkans treasure their history behind the very first translations of the Bible into the language of the people. So much so that Bulgaria has a national holiday honoring the brothers Saints Cyril and Methodius, who created the Church Slavonic alphabet in order to bring the Gospel to the Slavs in the 9th Century. This event predated Luther’s Bible translation into common German by about 700 years! IFOSJ is carrying on in the tradition of both Martin Luther and Cyril and Methodius by bringing much needed and desired materials and lessons through our Bible School.

Bible School

When Communism fell in Bulgaria, the church doors flew open. Thanks to missionaries from North America and the United Kingdom, the Gospel spread like wildfire in those heady and hopeful days of the early 1990’s. The Gospel also spread amongst the Roma communities. Along with poverty, illiteracy was widespread. The need for Biblical training became evident.

In response to the need, the International Fellowship of Saint John started a Bible School in native languages of the region. Training programs began in Bulgaria, Serbia, North Macedonia and Germany. As IFOSJ joyfully answers the call to make disciples of nations, the Bible School is an initiative equipping eager hearts with the healing Word.

And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.
