Students may enroll in Breath of the Spirit School of Ministry year-round. We will be following the reading/assignment schedule shown below for the Diploma of Biblical Studies program, so it may be necessary for students who join later in the year to spend extra time reading any material and completing any assignments they may have missed.

In the Diploma of Biblical Studies program, students are welcome to complete Year 1, Year 2, and/or Year 3. Special recognition will be given to students who complete all 3 years of the Diploma of Biblical Studies program.

Students in all programs should submit their class attendance information, required essays, and any other required assignments described below in November of each year.

Students must be at least 18 years old to enroll in Breath of the Spirit School of Ministry.

We will hold an approximately 30 minute group discussion about the Bible books that we have read each month on the last Saturday of each month. This discussion will occur during the review time at the beginning of the Jesus the Rabbi class.

We highly encourage students who have graduated from any of our BSSM programs to enroll in the Diploma of Biblical Studies program: Year 1, Year 2, and/or Year 3. Studying the Word of God is a great honor and a lifelong endeavor!
