The School of Biblical Studies (SBS) is a 9 month long program in which you read the Bible at least 5 times and study each one of the 66 books. You'll be taught by people from all over the world, learn how to apply Biblical principles, and be trained to share what you have learned with others. The goal of SBS is not just for you to be rooted in God's word and character, but to transform you and equip you to invite others into the kingdom of God.

Some of the things you'll be studying/introduced to are:

  • the Inductive Bible Study Method
  • the Torah
  • Historical writings
  • Wisdom Literature
  • the Prophets
  • and the Epistles

What will I learn in SBS?

What will I do in SBS?

There are not many programs like a SBS. It is a wild time where you live and do life as part of a community of people who are crazy about God and his Word. SBS students come from all over the world, from different cultures and Christian traditions and together go deeper into the Bible and discover God anew.

A School of Biblical Studies is an official program run by YWAM and has curriculum requirements. Here are the elements of the YWAM SBS program:

  • classroom learning (9 hours per week)
  • individual study (25 hours per week)
  • intercession & worship 
  • small groups 
  • work duties 
  • local outreach 
  • one-to-one conversations, mentoring, coaching

What is the weekly schedule like?

The schedule will vary a bit from school to school, but your schedule will look pretty close to this example schedule below:

What is Nuremberg like?

Nuremberg is awesome! It's the city that many of our former students and staff move to because they enjoy it so much.

The YWAM facilities are located directly in the heart of the city right next to the main train station, which is awesome news because you will never be far away from a German bakery, a cup of locally roasted coffee, and there are of course plenty of schnitzel options!

Martin Luther called Nürnberg the "Eyes and ears of Germany" it’s not only a great city to live in but has played key roles through out the history of Germany. We think you will really like it!

Practically, it is an incredibly easy city to get around in. Very few of the YWAMers own or use cars because biking and walking are the main modes of getting around. If you’re not into the whole bicycle thing, there are buses, trams, scooters, underground trains, overground trains… you name it, we have it!

  • lot's of great coffee shops
  • public transportation is amazing
  • a city filled with history, tradition, and global influence
  • tons of great German restaurants
 Nuremberg is a great city - here are 3 reasons why Nürnberg is the place to do your SBS! 

Are you ready to do something you have never done before?
