Our Mission at Wellmont is to connect each student to the whole story of the Bible and to discover God's identity for them individually. We believe that excellence in all areas will flow out of a person who understands their purpose and God-written identity. Our Bible classes have been reformatted with one purpose in mind; connecting our students with their Creator and the lover of their souls, so they are observation and discussion-based.

Students and teachers discuss scripture meditations from Assembly each Tuesday, and complete additional Bible searches and journaling in class and throughout the week. The goal is drawing students into a more intimate place with God as they self-reflect using His Word as their barometer.

Themes covered in Bible vary from year to year. Samples include: Life of David, Life of Paul, OT/NT Covenant, Identity, Apologetics, Discipleship, and The Gospels.
