WHAT IS this about?

See the Bible as a story, with a loving God central to every teaching. Find your place in that story. ARISE Online is an interactive video course that lets you study your way through Scripture with a narrative lens. As a story, it’s divided into seven chapters: Pre-Creation, Creation, Fall, Covenant, Messiah, Church, and Re-Creation. These seven chapters are bookended by two collections of classes that we call the Prologue and the Telling.

Check out the Curriculum Overview here:

Adapted from the 13 week on-campus full time study intensive, the ARISE Online program allows for more flexibility and affordability. OAC will be organizing local study groups to support your movement through the curriculum in 10 months. This will require 3-5 hours per week to personally engage with the video content, quizzes and group discussions. We've also created an ARISE lite track requiring just 2 hours per week so even the busiest person can participate.

Instead of $4950 USD for the 13 week in-person study intensive, ARISE Online is $800. However OAC is pleased to offer a deeply discounted rate of $50 for group participants and free enrollment for committed group leaders. ARISE Online is self-driven. You will get out of it what you put into it. However you are not alone on your discipleship journey. Not only will you connect with online participants from around the globe, but here at OAC we will be offering small group connections and summaries of each chapter with a monthly message.
