PRM 149 - Introduction to Biblical Preaching
The purpose of this course is to give an overview of different styles and methods of biblical preaching. A secondary purpose is to move from the process of interpreting Scripture to that of a biblical sermon. This course combines principles of effective communication with the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to inspire passionate and relevant preaching.
Taught by Kevin Schwartz
GNS 210 - History and Practices of the Ancient Church
The history of the Church is rife with revelations of the sovereignty of God, the heroism and villainy of humankind, and the wisdom gleaned from two millennia of life in the Spirit. This course is a survey of the history of the early Christian community (approximately 30AD – 750 AD) with an emphasis on the eastern church. It will help the student to understand the heritage of Christian faith and how to integrate its most fruitful thought and practices into the present. It will emphasize the theology and spiritual lives of men and women of God who defied the convention of their times to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to a world suffering under the burden of darkness.
Taught by Sean Stevenson-Douglas
BTH 255 - Philippians/Colossians
These two epistles contain many beloved passages—both doctrine and instruction for Christian living. They will be studied for both understanding and application to modern life and ministry.
Taught by Dr. John Loge
