Free Online Class

BMA is offering a free online course in the Spring 2022. The course will be eight weeks long and includes various assignments and opportunities to interact with fellow students. Students who complete the course will receive a certificate of completion.

Free courses are not for credit and do not apply to any degrees. These courses are offered strictly for the educational benefit of the general public. Students will only receive a certificate of completion. Individuals who wish to take courses for credit or pursue a degree should apply for regular semester courses


  • This course is specifically designed for church workers who are Sunday School Teachers, youth workers, deacons, and all church members who want to improve their ability to study the Scriptures to better understand and put into practice the calling of God’s people.
  • There is ample opportunity for student interaction on the course topics through the weekly forums.  Students in one area of the world will be able to interact in class conversation with other students in another part of the world.
  • Students do not have to be “computer experts” to enroll in a FREE course.  The process is quite intuitive for the Moodle course platform. There is a little technology required. Read about it here.
