Our Program

Our Program

Parole de Vie Béthel is a great place to perfect your French in a dynamic setting of Bible study and French ministry! In addition to our regular Bible Institute program, since 1950 over 1000 students have studied French in our language program in preparation for missions around the world. Now, for the first time, elements from both courses of study are being creatively combined into an exciting 11-month program unique in all of North America. The Bible Institute program at Parole de Vie Béthel is designed for those who wish deepen their walk with the Lord and lay a great foundation for a victorious, balanced life. In addition to acquiring a greater understanding of the Bible, students will have the opportunity to put into practice the principles learned in class.

Students in the French immersion program will have a balance of French and Bible courses. During the fall semester they will receive ten hours of language training per week while also taking selected Bible Institute courses. Bible Institute assignments may be done in English. During the winter/spring semester, students will participate fully in the Bible Institute program with an additional five hours per week of language study. All assignments will be done in French. In the Summer semester, they will do their internship in French in our summer camping program.

The best way to learn a language is to be immersed in it. For this reason, single students will be housed in dorms with our regular Bible Institute students and will participate fully in the multiple ministry opportunities that are part of that program. These include choir and drama tours, children's ministry, open-air evangelism, youth rallies, snow camps, a mission's conference, and a mission's trip to the First Nations communities located in northern Quebec.
