The community is a natural part of a Bible school stay. You get to know each other well, and the stay provides an opportunity to work with the unredeemed aspects of yourself and your character. It also provides an opportunity to encourage and bring out the best in each other. Many people experience the joy of being part of an environment where you are there for each other and help each other to grow and develop. In addition, the community allows for a whole lot of fun and Danish hygge in the midst of everyday life. For many, being at the Bible school is the beginning of lifelong friendships.
We have hired two chefs. Not only do they prepare healthy, nutritious and extremely tasty meals, but they do so with love and empathy. Serving their latest creations is a pure pleasure. The head chef, Rasmus Mortensen, has also created a great atmosphere in the large common dining room. You just have to experience it for yourself!
Part of your development! Working on practical tasks is also a way of honouring each other, a way of managing what we have been entrusted with, and so it makes school a nicer place to be.
Serving - even where few notice - is an opportunity to see what others don't. Practical work is part of everyday life for everyone, just as it is for the rest of our lives. That's why every student has some practical work to do every day during lunch or after class.
The daily tasks are mainly cleaning, serving and washing up. Cleaning includes common areas such as vacuuming the stairwell, washing floors, cleaning toilets and bathrooms. The kitchen staff serves morning coffee and lunch (hot food), and in the morning and evening the students prepare the food. Washing up after meals is also the students' responsibility.
During the year, Acts academy hosts major events. For us, it is an opportunity to bring people together, give them a good experience, and bring them closer to God.
Students serve in various tasks when we have such events. Expect 3-4 major events and a number of smaller events and get-togethers.
As a group, we do our best to maintain a good standard and ensure that all guests feel welcome.
Being a Bible school student also means having free time together. There are many possibilities for your free time:
Get energy from fitness and sports. This can be done in the school's smaller gym, in the hall or simply in the fantastic surroundings where it is easy to put on your running shoes, for example.
There is space for movies, games and socializing in our newly decorated dining room, the students' living room or in the rooms. During the summer, the school's park is also ideal for socialising.
The library offers the opportunity to find the next good book, provide a good study environment or just be where you find peace and quiet.
Kolding town, the beach and the Storcentret are favourite destinations for a walk together. It is just a few kilometres to Kolding's centre with shops, cafés and city atmosphere.
You are encouraged to join a small group or activities in church - or start! It's a great way to grow together and get to know someone outside the house.
Congregational activities include everyone. There are opportunities to serve in a variety of activities that take place on weekdays after school.
The school year consists of an autumn semester and spring semester. We suggest that you aim to take a full year at Bible school. Yes, in fact, there may be good reasons to take two years! It provides an opportunity to go deeper in teaching and to take greater responsibility in the practice of the church.

For Danish students and students from European countries, the stay is paid on an ongoing basis. Please plan your stay well in advance so that you have the opportunity to get the economy in place as well.
Having saved up money is clearly the best way of funding your stay thereby not having to worry about the economy. A good way to do this is to work, for example during the summer holidays, before you start or while in high school.
Many churches would like to support a Bible school student, because your training is also a plus for the congregation.
In addition, it is not uncommon for Bible school students to receive financial support from family or friends.
This can be both as a lump sum or on a monthly basis.
As a last resort to fund your stay, you may want to consider a loan, private or in the bank. Your total cost of a one-year Bible school stay is approximately DKK 60,000 without pocket money.
There are a few opportunities to get financial support for a folk high school, which this Bible school is. As a rule, it will require an interview with the case manager or an application:
SU, the state education grant
Unfortunately, being a student at the Bible school does not entitle you to SU. If you are already receiving SU and have the opportunity to attend a Bible school course at the same time, you can keep your SU. This may be the case, for example, if you are on maternity leave or writing your final assignment.
The College has a student fund where you can apply for financial support after your first semester. Funding is awarded on the basis of personal application and depends, among other things, on the number of applicants. The student fund is only a help along the way and can never pay for the entire stay.
Young under 25 and on unemployment benefit
If you are under 25 and have become unemployed, you can get 50% of the highest unemployment benefit rate for up to 6 months. You must remain available for work under the normal rules, and therefore be willing to interrupt your stay if you find work.
On cash assistance, educational assistance or integration benefit.
If you are on cash benefit, education benefit or integration benefit, you are allowed to go to a Bible school on your own and continue to receive your benefit. This means that you pay for the schooling yourself and you must continue to be available for work while you are at the school.
However, you can also apply to go to a Bible school as part of an activation programme. Contact your local authority employment adviser or case worker.
If you live in the Faroe Islands or Greenland (aged between 18 and 25), you can apply for support for up to 20 weeks of your stay. The support currently amounts to DKK 700 per week. The application deadline is 1 April for the autumn course and 1 October for the spring course.
Before you can apply for support from the National Community Fund, you must be enrolled as a student at the school. This means that the first step is to contact the school.
Students from Denmark or Europe do not need a visa to attend a Bible school in Denmark.
However, if you or someone you know would like to attend Acts Academy, and is not a citizen of EU/EEA you must apply for a visa before the start of the course.
Expect the process to take about 3 months. Acts Academy cannot pre-empt this process.
1. Apply to become a student
Before you can apply for a visa, you must first be admitted as a student at the school. The application is done here. Please note that for foreign students we also ask for a reference from your pastor, youth leader or similar.
2. Obtain the recommendation form from your pastor, youth leader, etc.
Wait for the school's reply. If you have been admitted, it is time to move on in the process.
5. Paying for the whole course
Once you have been admitted to the course you want, you must pay for the whole stay before you can apply for a visa. Once we have received full payment, we will send you a receipt for your payment.
Once we have received payment, we can start the visa application process.
6. Applying for a visa
Theschool can thencomplete its part of the application, after which the student completes the second part of the application. Please note that once the application is submitted, the applicant has 14 days to have biometrics done at a Danish mission.
If you already have a visa for Denmark
If you, or someone you know who would like to go to Acts Academy, already have a visa for Denmark/Schengen countries and are in Denmark, you can apply for a study visa for higher education while your current visa is valid. The process is as described above.
You are allowed to attend the college while your application is being processed.
If your application is rejected, you will of course have to interrupt your stay and probably leave the country.
