“How long is Bible Study Fellowship?”
Bible Study Fellowship now runs for 30 weeks and follows the school year. In the United States, the first BSF classes begin the week after Labor Day. There is a three-week break for Christmas and a one-week break for Spring Break, which varies depending on your BSF group.
This is different in other countries. Many begin in late August, and those in the Southern Hemisphere begin the BSF study about half-way through ours due to their different seasons.
The BSF classes themselves run approximately two hours. This includes group discussion and lecture.
In the past, BSF was 32 weeks and was 2.5 hours long. However, 2.5 hours is a long time for young children, and students at night would get home really late. Thirty weeks gives a bit more of a break during the summer, too.
