Johannesburg Bible College (JBC) is an interdenominational college offering men and women practical training in understanding and teaching the Bible through classroom-based courses. Its inception came from a group of local church leaders who were aware of the need for accessible Bible training that would enable people from a variety of denominations to understand and teach God’s word within the communities. Revd Dave West initiated in finding someone to start the work and the college opened its doors in February 2005.
Our courses are for any Christian who would like to know and serve God better through a deeper understanding of the Bible and being equipped to teach it well to others.
JBC is an affiliate of the Association of Christian Religious Practitioners (ACRP). JBC is in the process of accrediting its courses with the Quality Council for Trades & Occupations (QCTO). Please note JBC is not yet accredited.
Both our morning and evening courses in Soweto are specifically aimed for those who are already serving (or would like to) in ministries that involve teaching the Bible, with knowledge and skills to be more effective. You have a choice of either morning courses or evening courses.
Classes are conducted in English and use a variety of teaching styles.
Most of the work is done in class, although some courses set out of class learning. You will have a number of assignments to complete and occasional class tests.
We do not offer any correspondence courses.
We do charge a registration and course fee. These are discounted and bursaries to cover course fees are available. Please see Appendix C of the application form.
