Holsby is an international Bible school and camp & retreat center located in southern Sweden. We are one of 25 such centers globally and are affiliated with Torchbearers International, an interdenominational Christian ministry. Our mission is to provide the biblical, experiential and relational context for lives to be changed by Jesus. We are centered in Christ, rooted in Scripture, engaged in discipleship and joined in community.
“…we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well…”
—1 Thessalonians 2:8
It is our privilege as staff to invest in the lives of people the Lord brings to Holsby each year. Whether it be through discussions in the classroom, late-night chats in the dorm, serving side-by-side in the kitchen, or dangling high off the ground in the ropes course, we look forward to getting to know the guests the Lord brings here and seeing their lives impacted by Christ.
Enjoy the beautiful grounds of Holsby. With quaint, picturess buildings dating back to the mid to late 1800’s, students and guests continue to say that there is just something different about this place. In 1770, a rich spring reservoir was discovered one kilometer east of the village of Holsbybrunn and by 1802 a health spa was up and running. In 1973 Torchbearers International purchased the old spa and since then it has been home to thousands of Bible school students and camp and retreat guests.
Our statement of faith is that of Torchbearers International, of which we are a member school:
