Spring 2019 Courses:
Untying the Knots of the Heart | 3823
Thursday 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. (and 2 Saturday intensives)
Kevin Skidmore, MA; TBD
Do you believe the Gospel is true, but sometimes Christianity just "doesn't work"? Where is the victory and joy? Does God seem distant and the Gospel......abstract? Learn how God makes you whole, and experience transformation that affects every relationship. (in cooperation with aphesisgroup.com - instructor permission required for non-students to enroll)
Science and Religion | 3143
Tuesday 6:00p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Tim Gordon, DMin
This course is designed for people who are interested in exploring the relationship between science and religion (Christianity). It will also examine the historical debate between the science and religion disciplines. Christians and Non-Christians alike will be challenged to critically examine their scientific paradigms within the context of theistic creation models. This course is not designed to answer all the hard questions, but it is designed to assist students in constructing a framework of how science and religion complement one another.
Personal Evangelism | 2512
Wednesday 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Jon Strain, MDiv
Gospel means "good news", but can you clearly state it and explain it in a winsome way? This course is designed to help the student learn the basics of understanding and communicating the gospel with concern, confidence and clarity. Rather than a college campus approach, emphasis will cover real-world situations like sharing with family members, co-workers, and in both professional and recreational settings.
Hebrews | 3712
Thursday 1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Bill Pubols, DMin; Kelly Poirier. M.Ed
The book of Hebrews is "a unique piece of early Christian writing", not easily categorized, but it offers a wealth of deep theology, gospel clarity and life-changing ethics. Learn how Christ is our High Priest, the law is fulfilled only through Him, and the New Covenant is superior to the Old Covenant - and calls for a serious commitment with "no turning back". You're view of salvation will be challenged, bolstered, and changed for good!
