Frequently Asked Questions

Where are these Bible studies held?

The majority of our CBS classes are currently held in churches, but have not been affiliated with a church. See our Class Locator. Classes can now be started in homes, as part of a church small group ministry, or a class could be started in an office over the lunch hour. Churches are now welcome to start a CBS class as part of their Christian Education ministry. Children & Youth classes can be started as "stand alone" classes- meaning they are not affiliated with an adult class. C&Y classes could be started as part of a Christian School Program or as an After School Ministry. The possibilities are endless!

How did Community Bible Study get started?

Community Bible Study began in the US in 1974 - a direct result of the prayers of a group of faithful people seeking an in-depth Bible study. God has continued to bless this ministry through the years and in 1985 the first Canadian class began in Toronto. Today there are more then 30 classes in Canada.

Who writes CBS materials?

CBS Canada obtains all lessons from the ministry in the US which is responsible for all the writing and editing. Selected individuals write the lesson questions and application suggestions. Bible scholars are recruited to produce the commentary sections. CBS tries as much as possible to avoid denominational bias in its materials.
