Social Work Department

It all began in 1997 -98 Church year with an objective to provide another medium for members and friends instruction on relevant topical issues which will enable them to better cope with the variances of the community in which we live. The Bethel Lay Institute (BLI) is used to provide training in various aspects of the Christian beliefs.

Our pastor, Rev. Dr. B. K. Taylor has a vision of the Bethel Lay Institute (BLI) moving towards Institute ministry. What does this mean? A hope that in two years there will be a Christian Education Institute (CEI) which will offer more complete and advanced training modules related not only to spiritual development, but to other areas such as Christianity in an urban setting and family issues.

The BLI’s term 2 runs from May 9, 2004 to June 26, 2004. You are encouraged to sign up for one or more of the courses listed below:
