The Bible Institute

Bible Institute - A guided tour of the entire Bible

The Bible Institute is held Monday-Friday, 6 am- 7:45 am. We work verse-by-verse through the Bible in chronological order, demonstrating the continuity of the Scripture and watching as God's plan unfolds.

Although this class is not offered for academic credit, it equips men and women to better understand the whole of Scripture. Students in the Masters program at The WEST Institute are expected to attend the Bible Institute class every morning. Additionally, the program is open to Laramie Valley Chapel members, University of Wyoming and Laramie County Community students, and anyone else looking to dedicate a year to studying God's Word from cover to cover. Even those who do not live in Laramie can participate through live streaming.

The program walks students through the Bible to help provide a good biblical foundation for teaching, leading, and living one's life. This program does not provide housing and does not include any outdoor training or access to the gear rental program available through our Masters program.

What Our Students Are Saying…

"Hands down my favorite part and most beneficial part of the WEST!"

— 2018 Graduate

"Although we are required to read the Bible for our NT and OT classes, the Bible Institute helped connect a lot of the dots and gaps that we weren't able to discuss in class."

The Cost

The full tuition is due regardless of a students faithful attendance or withdrawal from the Bible Institute.

The tuition is $1095, but we allow a 1-week drop window to start the year during which a student can drop out and owe nothing. After that period, the student is expected to pay the full tuition. The tuition may be paid in full or quarterly. Please talk to us if you have a unique situation regarding any of this and we will work with you.

*Our conviction is to not allow finances to be prohibitive to anyone desiring to deepen in their knowledge and understanding of Scripture. If finances are uniquely prohibitive to you, please fill out the scholarship portion of the application. Scholarship applications will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

The Schedule

The Bible Institute will meet Monday-Friday each week following the University of Wyoming Academic Calendar.

We match the University's academic schedule to make it easier on both college students and Laramie residents who have children in the local school system.  Classes begin in early September, and the entire course will end when finals end in May.  The Bible Institute will break for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Spring Break.
