About Us

Mission statement

From the love and gifts God the Father has poured out on our lives, we at BEE Bible School:

  • Desire to teach the Word of God to those seeking refuge in The Netherlands.
  • With the power of the Holy Spirit to help them grow in their walk with the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • And equip each of them to work in God’s Kingdom.

Who we are

BEE Bible School is a group of dedicated people. Some are Pastors, some Evangelists, others participating in several Christian organizations, each committed to spreading the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and to expanding the Kingdom of God.

Many refugees in the Netherlands are Christian, either because they fled persecution as a Christian in their country of origin, or because they came to faith later in The Netherlands. These refugees are strategically placed to reach groups or peoples that are otherwise closed to the Gospel, whether they eventually return to their country of origin or remain here.

The aim of BEE Bible School is to equip those who are interested and gifted in order for them to communicate the Gospel to people of their own origin and culture. The BEE (Biblical Education by Extension) program is taught in English.

We are all volunteers and do not get paid. This allows BEE to keep students fees low and thus make the program available to as many as possible.
