Who We Are

What We Believe
Our Core Values

SAFETY | Provide our children safety physically, spiritually and emotionally

  • Physically: All Bible2School staff and volunteers comply with state background check requirements. We then train our team members in security measures to keep our children physically safe.
  • Spiritually: We provide spiritual safety by ensuring that children are in a safe place to ask tough questions throughout their learning process in small group time spent with classmates and mentors.
  • Emotionally: Bible2School leaders are required to attend their Bible2School elective every week. They are trained to promote an environment where children will be accepted and valued.

CHRIST-CENTEREDNESS | Point our children to Jesus with every Bible lesson

  • Each week, we help children understand who Jesus is in the context of the lesson: how much He loves them, that He has a plan for them and that He has given their lives purpose.

AGE-APPROPRIATENESS | Teach the Bible on our children’s grade level

  • We seek to meet children at their level when learning about the Bible. Our curriculum is written for each grade level so that children will have the best advantage in learning the morals and values of God’s Word.

RELEVANCE | Keep lessons real so that truths are applicable to our children’s lives

  • We teach our children that the Bible is filled with timeless truths that are applicable today in every aspect of their lives.

RELATIONAL | Value our community

  • We keep our community at the forefront of our classes by cultivating a strong Body of Christ. We value each child’s story that they bring to their class and seek to encourage one another through the Bible2School community.

FUN | Teach in order to make learning the Bible exciting

  • We strive to make Bible2School the best hour of our children’s week. We seek to make our lessons so fun that they cannot wait to come back to hear more about the Bible!
Our Belief

Bible2School is committed to serving children attending public school with excellence and integrity, using the Bible alone as our foundation and highest authority. We believe that salvation comes through God’s grace by faith alone in Jesus Christ, and our response to God’s salvation is a life lived for His glory with the help of the Holy Spirit.  

We accept those areas of doctrinal teaching on which, historically, there have been general agreement among Bible-believing Christians. Because we are non-denominational, we desire to allow for freedom of conviction on other doctrinal matters.

our journey

THEN

  • In 1979, a group of pastors known as the Manheim Ministerium made the decision to utilize the newly amended Section 1546 of the Pennsylvania School Code which allows children to be released from public school for training of their choice.
  • Under the Manheim Central Christian Education Council, over one hundred fifth-graders from all seven of Manheim Central School District’s elementary schools attended weekly Released Time Bible classes. Classes were held at the closest participating churches and bus transportation was provided for classes that had no church within walking distance of the school.

NOW

  • More than 40 years later, Bible2School still provides weekly released time Bible classes for elementary students in Lancaster County and is now expanding nationwide through Bible2School Memberships.
  • A Bible2School Membership is a subscription-based, franchise model designed to help you activate a Bible2School program in your own local school.  We will come along side you by equipping you with resources, curriculum and more to implement this dynamic program and mobilize your community. Together, we can meet children where they are with the love and hope of the Gospel.


LOOKING AHEAD

  • We at Bible2School have a sense of urgency coupled with a calling from God to reach children attending public school who otherwise do not have access to God’s Word. We need your help to connect with churches and organizations, to find more financial partners and to assemble volunteer teams. What an amazing day it will be when every child attending public school will have the opportunity to hear God’s Word through a Bible elective! We can’t wait to see what God will do next through Bible2School.
Our Team
Our Leadership

We believe that ministry is a team sport and that every role is critical in fulfilling the vision and mission of Bible2School. Our courageous leaders use their talents to honor and serve God with consistent excellence. They oversee our passionate teams of volunteers and donors with guidance that maximizes our impact for His Kingdom.
