Yes, CSBS is coming to Tijuana, Mexico.
Los Angeles, California pioneered the first CSBS (Chronological School of Biblical Studies) four years ago.
I (Jesse Evans) was a student in that first CSBS in L.A., have staffed since and am currently co-leading with Cliff Davis. I knew sometime during my second year of staffing that I was going to be a part of CSBS long term and began really seeking where God would want to send me to start CSBS.
We have been partnering with the Tijuana base and the BCC (Bible Core Course); we go down to speak in the schools and provide advice and encouragement to the staff and are building good relationships. A Canadian by the name of Brodie Wilson has been running BCC down there and through our conversations we believed God wanted to see CSBS established on the growing base in Tijuana.
After the initial excitement, my wife and I prayed with Brodie for about a month to really know whether this was right. God spoke and we committed to going down in August to start CSBS September 2011.
We are working on promoting the school now and praying for a good group of people who want to study the word. Pray that God gives the Mexican people a desire to know His Word. We are forming our staff for the school and that is coming together well.
Also pray that we can offer this as an easier access place to bring students from Africa, Asia, and the Mediterranean.
We want for CSBS to be a blessing to the base, raising up leaders and teachers who have a foundation in truth.
Pray for our transition from Los Angeles to Tijuana and the ongoing relationship that will be created between L.A. and Tijuana. It is exciting that God is expanding the family of CSBS and opportunities are growing for more Excellence in Biblical Studies. We love having a part in that and feel it is a huge honor and blessing from God.
