“What is BSF?”
Over the years, I’ve gotten this question, so I thought I would write a post and share with those who are new to BSF.
BSF stands for Bible Study Fellowship. It’s a free nondenominational bible study group founded in 1959 by A. Wetherell Johnson. It chooses a Bible Study every year to focus on that follows the school year, usually beginning the week following Labor Day and ending in mid-May. It uses a four-fold approach, which includes reading a Bible passage, answering questions on the passage, discussing the questions in a small group session, and then listening to a trainer speaker on the passage. It focuses solely on what God’s word says, not what others interpret it as.
There are BSF bible study groups all over the world and the country. These groups are divided into women, men, and young adults. There is a student program that follows the adult program that parents can bring their children to. Since the pandemic, BSF has expanded to online groups as well.
The Bible study changes every year and usually focuses on one book or topic. For 2022/2023, BSF will be launching People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided, a study of many books of the Bible. This will be my 10th year, and I’m SUPER excited for this study!
I hope this explanation helps, and contact me with questions or leave a comment below!

thank you for all you teach and help us with
Most of all, THANK YOU for your in-depth study you do each week. The background for that time and how things were done.
I do have a question. Will BSF offer the complete study to be ordered ahead of time like they did Matthew? I loved that opportunity and sure saved me ink printing each lesson. Thank you again.
I hope so! I did the same thing, and it made my lessons SO much easier! I’ll keep you posted if they do!
Thank you for sharing this. So wonderful the studies focus solely on what God’s word says.🙏
thank you for all you do
