Upcoming Mini Semesters
Fall Semester 2017
PRM 100 – Introduction to Christian Living
This course is designed to strengthen your life as a disciple of Christ. It gives attention to the student’s walk with the Lord and encourages a strong focus on spiritual growth. It is an experience intended to fortify the foundations of an ongoing, intimate, and faithful relationship with God that will undergird whatever vocational path students pursue. The content covers relevant topics such as our relationship with God, engaging with the Bible, prayer, discipleship, evangelism, service, the gifts of the Spirit, our world, relationships with others and spiritual warfare. Readings and assignments have been chosen to stimulate personal development rather than focusing on assimilating information.
Taught by Brian Fuller
PRM 230 – Leadership I: Foundations of Christian Leadership
This course is an introduction to the study and practice of leadership from a Christian perspective. The teaching will not focus on any one type of leadership, but rather will attempt to examine the question of leadership within a Christian/Biblical framework, broad enough for any student. Focus will also be on followership. Each student will be given the opportunity to discover, evaluate, and practice different aspects of leadership.
Taught by Gary Stevenson
BTH 216 Joshua/Judges/Ruth
Using a variety of teaching methods (lecture, group/individual project, reading, and evaluations), this course is designed to increase appreciation of, and add knowledge of these OT books and how they can be applied and taught today. A chapter by chapter approach will be used in class, as well as much student participation.
** PLEASE NOTE- This course is being offered as a Free Audit to anyone who is interested in taking it. You will still need to pay the application and Populi fees (our student data base system), as well as room and board for the week.
