A course examining the principles and practice of biblical interpretation as well as the primary tools of biblical research.

Old Testament Overview
In this course students will be presented with an overall introduction of the Old Testament. It will teach on the basic theme, key scriptures, and purpose of Old Testament. It will also cover basic information about book grouping, and key words. The information covered in this course will be key to gaining a deeper and richer understanding of the Old Testament.
Preaching is the divinely ordained presentation of the gospel and gives people a sense of the presence and the purpose of God. While Hermeneutics is rooted in the correct interpretation (i.e. science) of the word, homiletics deals with the sermon as an event and its delivery (ie the Art). Many in today’s churches forgo homiletics or style and thereby miss the opportunity to help facilitate true life change or they find themselves patterned to style thereby confusing style with doctrine. The juxtaposition of Science and Art is necessary to deliver sermons with power and skill to create a platform from God to bring change.

It will teach on the basic theme, key scriptures, and purpose of every New Testament book, and will cover details about the writer, historical and geographical context.

I Samuel 2:30 says, “Those who honor me I will honor, but those who despise me will be disdained.” Lack of honor will restrict that which belongs to us as children of God. We will explore greater revelation of honor that allows God to openly honor us, and release His blessings into the lives of the believer!
The Art of Following 201: Ministerial Ethics

The word ethics actually means ‘a discipline dealing with what is good and right’. It is a set of moral principles or values. Ministerial Ethics is a course that will help the minister develop a consciousness of ethical behavior within the church, with its members, and more importantly within the confines of their peers and other leaders of the church. By taking this course, we will be one step closer to ensuring that the integrity of the student can take him as far as God wants him to go. It is through ministerial ethics and integrity that the minister will grow and develop his reputation, and it is upon this reputation that he will either stand or fall. Our hope is that the minister, with the help of the Holy Ghost, be found blameless through his conduct and behavior.

Many times as Christians, we do not realize that our conditions of life are not always our position.

Spiritual problems can never be solved through natural means. Satan has come to steal, kill, and destroy, but Jesus said he came that we may have life to the full. Many christians having gained heaven in the afterlife are living in hell on earth. This book will expose satan’s methodology of attack. Billions have been made trying to feed the soul.

This class brings light and revelation on Demonic oppression, depression, obsession, and possession to help pull back the veil and overcome the spiritual attack on and in our lives.
In this class students will be introduced to the role of a Chaplain. Chaplains have been used since the earliest days of the Church in the First Century. Chaplains bring the presence of Christ to persons and situations that are often inaccessible to traditional pastors, missionaries, and parachurch workers. Chaplaincy ministry ranges from battlefields to airfields, hospital rooms to break rooms, prison chapels to ships at sea. Though chaplains are often associated with military forces or hospitals, they may also serve in a number of different situations, such as disaster relief (first responder), corporate, fire departments, police departments, airports, race tracks, sports teams, nursing homes, hospice, and correctional institutions.

The Person and Ministry of the Holy Ghost
This course will be an examination that concisely defines the particular ministry and person of the Holy Spirit.
According to The Joshua Project research, there are 16,825 people groups across the globe. Sadly, 6,989 people groups have not yet been reached with the Gospel. We call these Unreached People Groups (UPG’s). This doesn’t always mean they don’t have a Christian church. It may mean they don’t know a Christian or they’ve never heard of Jesus and that He loves them. This course will unfold the need of reaching the nations to the many strategies Holy Spirit is using to take the Gospel across cultures. Jesus spoke of the lost coin, the lost sheep and the lost son. Why? Because he is distracted with the lost. So they must be on our radar in these last days as well. To reach the UPG’s you can go to the nations, or in your own neighborhood. From the largest ethnic group in the world (450 million Arabs), to the 8,000 Faroese, or to the one left alone by the side of the road. Just go…and make disciples of all nations.
Courses I & II

Cults and Religion
Cults and World Religions is an apologetics class to help acquaint Christians with several of the major religious groups that one will likely encounter from time to time. This course will embrace two major topics: (1) cults, and (2) major world religions. Knowing what another person believes and why that person holds those beliefs can be very helpful when seeking to lead another person to Jesus Christ. While this additional knowledge is by no means a prerequisite for evangelism, it is clearly a helpful tool for evangelism. To accomplish this first objective, the professor will expose the students to the major issues on each group: origin, founder, major viewpoints, and major theological deviations. A second objective that is tied to the primary objective is to build upon the biblical knowledge of the student and to provide a systematic understanding of key biblical principles regarding the Gospel message. This course is built on the assumption that a thorough knowledge of the Bible and its theological truths is the best way for helping those who are in false religions.
