The Academy for Biblical Storytelling offers in-depth work to become a certified (BSC) and master certified (MBSC) biblical storyteller. These two certification programs are each offered every other year, not concurrently, running the calendar year. 2018 will be the next Basic Certification program year. 2017 is a Masters of Biblical Storytelling Certificate year and is by invitation only. Applications for the 2018 Basic Certification will be accepted from Oct. 1 until November 15, 2017. CLICK HERE TO OPEN A LIST OF OUR GRADUATES!
TO APPLY FOR THE 2018 BASIC CERTIFICATION PROGRAM, PLEASE READ ALL INFORMATION HERE AND FOLLOW ABS BSC APPLICATION PROCESS.
A prerequisite for admission to the Biblical Storytelling Certification program is attendance at a prior Festival Gathering. Since this basic-level program is offered every other year you can take advantage of the "off" years to fulfill this requirement. Both certification programs require attendance at the Festival Gathering the year you are in the program but the Festival Gathering during your basic-level year does not count as the required attendance prior to admission into the program. A Dropbox account and video taping equipment is also required.
