We are a Christian School based in the USA and welcome people to join our course that are Christian and not Christian. Our program includes training in English skills, Bible training, and other topics. If you are Muslim, Hindu, or from another religion, here is a little more information that will help you during the program.

A. Homework Assignments

After each class you will be given homework assignments to complete before the next class. The homework assignments will include many topics plus Bible questions. If you are new to the Bible, it’s ok if you don’t know the answer to a question. We just ask that you try and show effort.

B. Breakout Rooms

Our classes are interactive and during part of the live class on Zoom you will spend time discussing course topics plus Bible material. If you don’t know the answer to a question, we just ask that you are honest and let your classmates know that you don’t know the answer. We value honesty!
