Spartanburg County Bible Education in School Time (SCBEST) exists to help educate and disciple the youth of our community during the school day through what is known nationally as Release Time. With parental permission, students are allowed off campus during the school day to receive Bible education taught by trained Bible instructors from the Spartanburg community through what we refer to as “Church/School Partnerships.” Classes are designed to familiarize the students with the Bible and help in forming a Biblical worldview. Classes are usually held at a nearby church or non-school building that is located conveniently near the school campus. SCBEST has been offering Bible education classes to students in the Spartanburg area for 14 years. Our organization is most known for our high school level classes in which high school students receive elective credit that counts towards their graduation requirements. Therefore, our high school class requires outside reading, homework, papers, tests, and final exams just like their other classes.
