CHBI graduated students for two academic years (2017-2018, 2018-2019).  Unfortunately, there were no enough applicants for 2020-2021 – which would likely have been interrupted by COVID-19 anyway.

Many people asked about hybrid vs online classes.  The committee resisted this for very practical reasons.  It is simply different than face-to-face classes.  However, faced with no students but a full curriculum, the committee considered going to an online program.  Sadly, there was not enough interest to continue the program for the 2020-2021 school year.



The executive committee for Evangelistic Horizons Unlimited Inc dba Camp Horizon met on April 30, 2016 and established a committee to work out the details to begin CBHI.  The original idea of a full year residential program did not attract enough interest, so when the CHBI committee met in the fall of 2016 the program was redesigned.

On April 15, 2017 the committee made a commitment to begin classes in September 2017.  The first class will graduate two full time students.  There are three part-time students that we trust will continue in the fall.


The program consists of three 10 week academic trimesters. The fall semester is from September – November with a long break from Thanksgiving through the New Year.  Semesters Two and Three run from January through May.  There is a practical ministry requirement over the summer for full-time or graduating students.  This may be in the form of  summer camp service (Camp Horizon) or a mission opportunity (perhaps through CMML).

Classes will be held on Monday and Tuesday with meals and lodging provided.  This allows the student to be at their home assembly from Wednesday through Sunday.  Students will be able to work at least part-time.  The local assembly will benefit from their active participation.


To provide a one year Bible Institute at Camp Horizon that will serve to ground students in the Word of God, prepare them to defend the validity of their Christian faith, and provide intensive ministry opportunities that will facilitate spiritual, mental, and emotional growth and thus prepare participants for the next level of education, training and/or ministry.


To ground the student with a general Bible education that covers the content of the Word of God from Genesis to Revelation.

To ground the student in the faith by providing a foundational understanding of Basic Bible Doctrine – based on the Word of God.

To ground the student in the history and practice of the New Testament tradition of the brethren assemblies.

To prepare the student to defend their faith and practice with the Word of God.

To prepare the student to continue their studies with the tools to “rightly divide the Word of Truth.”

To prepare the student to be an active and vital part of a local assembly where their gift(s) are developed and expressed.


While the original idea was to provide a residential “gap” program for single students between high school and college, the change to a two day program opened the door to students of any age that wish to study the Word of God.
