HVBC Development Program 2023
The HVBC Development Program is a 2-semester study designed to grow one’s knowledge of God and His Word, a love for the gospel, and faithfulness in following the teachings and commands of Jesus.
With an aim toward ‘living out’ right theology, the curriculum and structure of the course will focus on three core competencies for each student: Sound Doctrine, Knowledge of God’s Word, and Christian Formation

● Weekly, on Sundays from 1:00-3:00pm from Jan. 22nd - May 7th and Aug. 20th – Dec. 10th.
● Each session will contain approximately 75-90 minutes of teaching and 30- 45 minutes of cohort discussions applying theology to your life.
Attendance at class sessions is expected. If a participant must miss a class session, they are expected to complete all required reading for that week. If a participant misses more than twice in a semester, they may be asked to remove themselves from the program.
Each class session will include cohort discussion time where a leader guides participants through questions pertaining to the subject material. This discussion is invaluable for processing the personal application of the content as well as dissecting areas of unbelief, sin, or misunderstanding. Participants are expected to commit fully in cohort discussions with graciousness and vulnerability.
Participants are expected to read the selected chapters from the textbook prior to corresponding lectures and cohort discussions. Reading will be taken from: Grudem, Wayne. Bible Doctrine, Second Edition. Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2022.
Each student will memorize one chapter of the Bible during each semester.
