Biblical Studies Released Time has both volunteer and paid staff.
Board members are volunteer believers from the local community churches who meet on a monthly basis. Included in their monthly meetings is a specified time of prayer for the program, teachers, and students.
We also have volunteers as assistants in our classrooms. Each volunteer is required to be a follower of Christ and an active member of a local church. They also undergo criminal background checks.
Our teachers are the only staff that the program employs. Each teacher is required to be a follower of Christ, an active member of a local church, and provide a letter of recommendation from their pastor in order to become employed. They are also required to undergo a criminal background check and obtain a CDL in order to drive the buses.
