Coventry Bible College offers both Level 1 and Level 2 Bible courses. The purpose of the Level One Diploma curriculum is to build a solid foundation of the Word of God into your life and the purpose of the Level Two Advanced Diploma in Ministry curriculum is to build upon the foundation received during the Level One Diploma Training. Level One curriculum is very much centred on and around our core values, our DNA if you like, of faith, the believer’s authority and being led by the Holy Spirit.The Level Two curriculum aims to train and equip students for ministry and leadership.


Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
Galatians 3:5 (NKJV)

My experience with Coventry Bible College has been amazing! I have taken away so much new information that I currently use in my own personal ministry. As I read the required books for each class and took exams I found out interesting facts that I may have originally looked over. The lectures allow me to hear deeper TRUTH on different topics and subjects from the class. As I grow with Christ, Coventry Bible College is providing me with the tools that I need in order to share the Gospel with the world! I am extremely thankful for that!


Throughout my first year and second year in Coventry Bible College, the experience was great. The lecturer and content that were made available are excellent tools for an individual to utilize within any ministry they are pursuing. I would highly recommend any person to consider attending Coventry Bible College.


My experience with Coventry Bible has not only been good for my spiritual development,but it has also has helped me to encounter God even more. I believe Coventry Bible has provided me with a good foundation and prepared me for the opportunities God has for me out in the real world. The highest benefits of Coventry Bible are not limited to earning knowledge, but also to take everything I have learned through this program and put it into practice in every moment of my life.


As a Coventry Bible student, I find myself enjoying learning from the lectures and textbooks.I often discuss what I’ve read in the books or what I have learned from the lecturs in everyday conversation. Coventry Bible College classes feed my intellectual side as well as my spirit. They refresh me with new ways of thinking about leadership, servant-hood, and discipleship. Any answers to questions I have are a question away and I can email and ask my lecturers who are are glad to answer them with understanding and joy. Coventry Bible College has trained my mind for ministry, missions, worship, counselling, youth ministry, or general ministry. I believe it mimics the ministry of Jesus, it is designed to meet people where they are, then help develop the skills, knowledge, and mindset needed for success.


Over the past two years I’ve had the privilege enjoying inspiring spirit led lectures and teaching in Coventry Bible College and decide to go for level two. My experience with Coventry Bible is unlike any other schooling experience. The classes are set up in such a way that fits my busy schedule. I can hand in assignments with convince, as opposed to having un realistic deadline. When I am juggling Bible College and five other things including work and family, it really makes a difference. I was not sure how to I would cope but the College provides flexibility and amazing support. I am able to afford fees and my faith keeps growing as I encounter all this teaching and experiences. Another thing that has stood out to me is the fact that instructors really make an effort to keep God first and in centre of all they teach. Each lecture I attended was kind of like a sermon of sorts. With each lecture, I felt like I was being poured into instead of just being sat in a class to learn the material for the class. Coventry Bible has been nothing short of excellence.


I wanted to say thank you to John and Sally for listening to God's voice to start and maintain Coventry Bible College. The way you arranged and set up the College lectures, handing in assignments, ensuring I am involved in ministry in my local church, instalment payment for fees, accessing missed lectures as recorded audio, bringing in visiting speakers who have years of ministry experience and walk with the Lord, personal support you provide and much more to me, is self-motivating and perfectly suited for me. I truly enjoyed my experience is Coventry Bible College.


I have come to LOVE CBC. In school I was never a very academic student. I struggled with a lot of things because I never have had a very good memory. Tests and quizzes were VERY hard for me in school because I just could not retain information. In CBC was such a good choice for me because you work really well with me and especially your schedule which has spaced three week Bible College weekend and exams that are mostly simple and intended to emphasis spiritual growth rather than mental knowledge only . I came to Coventry Bible college to grow spiritually and I am seeing that happen in my daily lifestyle. I was excited because it was going to be perfect as I will know what God’s will is rather than my ambitions. I am learning SO MUCH from these classes and it is definitely preparing me for what’s to come. I’m really, really happy with Coventry Bible College and I couldn’t ask for a better spiritual schooling that is for sure.


Coventry Bible College has been absolutely wonderful! I started classes and absolutely fell in love with the easy to understand teaching, the lectures, and the schedule. I look forward to every new class! The team at Coventry Bible College is so great, constantly working to help you in whatever way that you need, and make sure that these classes are providing growth and edification. All the lecturers are so engaging. DVDs and visiting speakers add extra inspiration. Another thing that I love about them is how personal they are. There aren't many colleges that will work to encourage you as much as CBC lecturers are. This year has been awesome within CBC, I'm absolutely loving how well it has been and I definitely plan to continue my studies with CBC to Level 2. I recommend CBC especially for those who are want to grow in the thinks of God and for those going into the ministry, because It has helped me so much to prepare for what I am called to do. Also for those who are not going to full time ministry, you will still get a wonderful experience and a great equipping and exposure to the word of God. Thank you so much CBC, you guys are great.


Personally, coming from a background like mine, I never once thought that I would be able to go to a Bible college and actually learn anything. Just thinking about it would get me a little down. Then, through a friend, I learned about Coventry Bible College. Knowing that I could do 2 years of Bible College and get ready to walk in faith and go into ministry made me so excited. I despised and had a low opinion about the Bible College and thought it was not for me. Never, in a million years, did I ever think that I would be in this position-in the Bible College!!!!. I was one of those the Bible said “ But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1 Corinthians 2:14 (NKJV)” Knowing that I can make a difference and get trained for it in an affordable manner and at a decent pace; I thought "why not?" I is now clear to me that God know the end from the beginning.
