Bible School January - March 2021

We want to invite you to use this season of global confusion and instability to get freshly anchored in a life of hope.

If you are a German (or European with the possibility to quarantine before arrival), we want to welcome you to an intensive 3-month experience of Christ-centered community where you can live, serve, study, and grow with other students who want to learn more about living life with God.

We’ll begin this on January 5, 2021 and plan to finish together on March 26, 2021.

The total fees, which include room, board, laundry, books, etc are €3860.

The program will take place in English and consist of community-based lectures, activities, and group projects.

A note about the hygiene plan for this program:

We want to make sure that we take any and all reasonable measures to protect our students as long as they are with us. For this reason, we continue to work with the health department of the German government and closely follow their instructions. Additionally, we have hired a doctor to permanently serve as our medical health and safety advisor for situations such as these. Using their input, data, and advice - we are taking the mandated precautionary measures to help our staff and students follow best practices for the protection of the vulnerable and for general prevention of virus transmission.

Please apply by December 23rd, 2020.

Stephen Volle – Principal

Tests, study projects, and reading assignments are given in addition to daily lectures, and a Bible School Certificate is awarded to students fulfilling course requirements. The teaching sessions, coursework, and group activities are a mandatory part of the Bible school program.

Transfer of credits from Bodenseehof is possible at some colleges and universities in Europe, the United States, and Canada but is usually awarded at their own discretion. Some schools have a credit transfer agreement with Bodenseehof.

No specific academic qualifications are required for admission, but students must be 18 years of age at the beginning of the course and fluent in the English language. Acceptance is based on the student’s application, references and willingness to commit to the course work and community standards.


We want everyone to have the opportunity to study the Word of God.

That's why we offer a reduced price for students from developing countries.

Feel free to let us know if you believe you may qualify and send us an email.
