Online Chronological Bible Core Course

The Online Chronological Bible Core Course

The three-month Chronological Bible Core Course (CBCC) is now available in an Online format to enable YWAM staff and those from other walks of life to take the course part-time while continuing with their base/team/life ministries and responsibilities.

The Online CBCC is a dynamic way for individuals to participate in a fully accredited University of the Nations CBCC that can be studied part-time at a base or team location.

Each month of the residential school is extended to a three-month module requiring 12-15 hours per week of study. There is a set start time and finish time for each module with a module leader who will not only be a tutor and support throughout the module but will also create community with the other students who are taking the course.

This course is designed to give students a thorough understanding of the Inductive Bible Study approach by learning how to employ various methods for reading, interpreting, and applying the Scriptures.

Students also have opportunities to be involved in topical seminars and various forms of historical, archaeological, literary, and geographical research.

During the course, students read through the whole Bible and study many individual books from both the Old and New Testaments in-depth. This study will also provide opportunity to interact with each of the main literary genres of Scripture.

Prerequisites for the Online CBCC  

  • Commitment to study approximately 12-15 hours a week

  • Access to the Internet

  • The dedication, time commitment, and self-motivation for this kind of learning

The Online CBCC is not a "cheap and easy" way to take the BCC, it is not "BCC lite". With the Online CBCC you will be receiving the same depth of teaching input our residential students receive, and the standard of work anticipated is the same.

The community dimension of the course – the online meetings – are an integral part of the course and participation is expected!

The Online CBCC and UofN Course Credit

Each of the Online CBCC modules are registered with the University of the Nations (UofN) Online Extensions Studies (OES) program, with credit awarded upon the successful completion of each module. You will be registered with UofN OES and certificates will be sent to you upon module completion. Each of the modules earns 4 credits. For more information about Extension Studies please visit

This course is the equivalent to the UofN CHR 211 Bible Core Course. If at some point you desire to use the Extension Studies course credit towards a UofN degree, these credits would be accepted as other transfer credits. The amount of credits that count towards a degree will depend on the subject of the degree and if these credits are appropriate for the degree focus.

Though the Bible Core Course is a stand-alone course, it is designed to be compatible with the longer Online SBS (School of Biblical Studies).

The Online CBCC is also available for UofN locations who want to run a full time BCC course. We as the Extension Studies Centre are able to partner with you to help you do this.
