Seminary-style courses, for Christians who want to grow deeper in their faith.

ABOUT SCOTTSVILLE BAPTIST INSTITUTE

Many Christians desire to grow deeper in their faith than the average church Bible study will take them. Scottsville Baptist Institute is a ministry of Scottsville Baptist Church, that seeks to provide seminary-style training for those who want to learn more.

For only the price of the required textbook, you can take courses such as Hermeneutics (Interpreting the Bible) or Christian Theology in an 8-week class period.

Scottsville Baptist Institute will meet on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM. Classes last one hour each night, with additional reading and assignments required throughout the week. Childcare is provided during meeting times via SBC Kids Wednesday evening activities.

There will be two 8-week terms in each semester (Spring and Fall), with a class offered during each term. Sometimes breaks are taken during the terms for situations such as local fall or spring breaks.

Due to the nature of these classes, registration is required to participate.
