The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. And the fear of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:10


Release Time Education


This program has been called the "best kept secret" in the public school arena: a non-taxpayer supported voluntary program where public school children can be enrolled to learn and study the Bible in an atmosphere where God is reverenced and respected. There are Released Time programs teaching the Bible to public school children all over the United States.

In a day and age where the public school system has tried relentlessly to take God out of our schools the release time education program (RTE) is a glimmer of hope. Schools have our children’s minds 5 days a week for 7 to 8 hours a day while the church is an optional one day a week for 2 hours. Hope Chapel supports and participates in RTE.



If you have a gift of ministering to children RTE is a great program to reach the youth of American. To get involved in Long Beach, CA come and visit us at Hope Chapel Long Beach and talk to Dave or Lynn Pocoroba.
