As you know, the BBP is a ten-month program with the vision to enable young people to develop their Spanish, deepen their faith, and discover their calling. Normally BBP takes place in Argentina, but due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, no students can be accepted in Argentina at the moment. Therefore, at first, it seemed that we would not be able to start BBP this year. But where one door closed, God had already opened another. We are very happy to be able to present the BBP 2020/21 Austria/Argentina to you. For this year, we had the great opportunity to start the first 3 months (the first module) in Austria together with Word of Life Austria. But the plan is to continue BBP in Argentina from January 2021 as planned*. But in the following you will find more detailed information:
Information / program
- September – December you will be in Austria at Word of Life and will be able to participate in various ministries there
- You will have Spanish classes with one of our BBP Spanish teachers from Argentina
- The accommodation will be in shared rooms (4-6 persons)
- Mission trip to Spain!
- Your service opportunities: Parish ministries, children and youth ministry, music ministries, the musical ministry “Kids forever”, discipleship, musical Renacido’s “Reborn to a Living Hope”: is also a theater production for young people that tells the true story of a drug-addicted couple who had AIDS and accepted Christ as their savior and from then on (even if only for a short time) lived for the Lord.
- We try to offer you the best possible environment that will enable you to maintain a good level of Spanish as soon as possible
- In Austria, there will be 8-10 hours of Spanish lessons per week
- In April*, all theology courses will be taken in Spanish (for those who now think this is impossible, trust me, it isn’t!) Here you will actually enter the 1st year program and when you finish BBP in July, it will also be the end of the first semester of the 1st year (explained in more detail below).
- Starting in January*, in Argentina, you will share your room with 5-6 Latin American students, which allows for complete immersion in the language. Your daily program, such as mealtimes, worship, and work, is the same as that of the Latin American student body. You will also receive more intensive Spanish classes.
Deepen your faith
- September – December: weekly theology courses in German/English (with translation), as well as a mission trip to Spain
- January – March: summer camp and mission trip Argentina*
- April – July: monthly theology courses with the Latin American student body in Spanish Argentina*.
- Each student is assigned a mentor who accompanies them through the entire process
Austria TOTAL $ 3100 + Missiontrip Spain $ 600
Argentina TOTAL $ 4000
Austria 25 September – 21 December 2020
Argentina January 2021 – Graduation 2 July 2021
*Note: Our plan is to continue the BBP in Argentina from January through July. Nonetheless, we are dependent on global events, that is, of the countries and the Bible Institute. In November we will evaluate the global situation and determine if the program can continue in Argentina or not. If this is not possible, the BBP will finish in December after your stay in Austria. We’ll inform you as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding, and we pray that the Lord may guide us in everything and give us wisdom to make the right decision.
