Core Courses are four intensive, on-site and virtual classes that provide an introduction to the Brethren in Christ U.S.

Designed to lay a foundation for ministry in the BIC U.S., Core Courses explore BIC history, theology, and leadership and structure. They are also a required component of the credentialing process for BIC U.S. ministers.

Each course is offered at least once a year in various locations across the U.S. The registration fee for each course is $150 (USD). This fee is waived for all BIC U.S. ministers.
