Rocky Mountains of Montana

Big Sky Country and the MWSB campus provide a breathtaking backdrop that encourages you to open your mind and deepen your connections to others and to God.  Take the time to breathe, think, and learn how to apply the Gospel to your daily life.

Life Together


One of the most unique aspects of MWSB is our community. Since our staff lives on campus, a family-like atmosphere is created with each new class. All students are assigned to a community group that meets weekly in the different staff homes. Students experience life together, often in new and deeper ways than they have experienced before. MWSB is a place where lifelong friendships are made.


At MWSB we believe that one of the ways in which God works to move His people to spiritual maturity in Jesus is through the encouragement, example, and accountability of other Christians. Our resident staff has been specifically hired to build relationships with our students and exemplify a life that is pursuing Christ daily.

What Drives Us

Our Mission

MWSB is a one-year Bible school that equips young adults to own their faith and build their life’s foundation on Jesus Christ.


Throughout the course of the year, students will move through all the Scriptures, often taking time to highlight specific themes or NT letters. 


Can I visit the campus?

We always encourage campus visits. There are a few lodging options in Augusta, Choteau, and Great Falls. Sign up for a campus visit here.

What do students typically do after their year at MWSB?

Many of our students attend a four-year college following their year at MWSB. Others begin the membership process with a mission organization. Many head to a trade school. Several enter the workplace.

We also have a second year program (Venture Program) at MWSB for six students each year.

Ultimately, we encourage students to follow God’s lead after their year at MWSB.

What makes MWSB different from other Bible schools or one-year programs?

There are three things that make MWSB distinct from other programs—our location, our staff-student relationships, and our commitment to proclaim the Gospel in all our teaching.

We are located at the edge of the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex, consisting of 1.5 million acres of designated wilderness in the NW corner of Montana. Students are set apart from our busy culture, away from many distractions, allowing them to focus on God’s Word and the work He is doing in their hearts. All our staff lives on campus which creates a family-like atmosphere. Each student will meet with a staff member throughout the year for encouragement in his or her Christian life. Students will also experience hearing the Gospel message preached in every class and chapel and in meeting times with the staff throughout the year.

Shelby Hart ’19

Venture Program ‘20

Greenville, SC

There is so much I could say about my two years here at MWSB. If you are really wanting to grow in your relationship with God in a less distracted setting, this is the place. God used MWSB to give me a foundation in Scripture that I hope to build on for the rest of my life. My biggest takeaway is learning the importance of the Gospel, how to show the gospel to others and how to preach the gospel to myself.

Tyler Howard ’23

Potlatch, ID

God is using MWSB to help young adults like me make our faith our own and grow in love for Jesus and what He did for us. I’ve grown so much in my love for the Gospel and His Word.  Before coming out here, I had the idea that I was a pretty good person. My eyes were opened to the fact that I’m a sinner, hopelessly in need of God’s grace, and I praise Him for sending His Son down. I’m so thankful that God is in control of my life.  I can’t wait to go home to put the things that I learned up here to use in a fallen and sinful world.

Jade Kochuten ’22

Lynden, WA

Attending MWSB has been one of the best decisions of my life. The Lord has taught me so much about His grace and love and just how undeserving of it I am. He has shown me how to trust in Him and how much more freeing it is to do so. I am so grateful for this opportunity and am excited to see how God will continue to work in my life.
