Ministerial Ethics

This course will develop the biblical framework of the guidelines and specific moral role of the minister of God. Various lessons and modern-day examples will be brought to the forefront with the purpose of demonstrating the standards God has sent for those He has called to serve in a ministerial capacity. Emphasis will be placed on the fundamental truth that a minister of our Lord is first and foremost a servant.


Bible Foundation and Doctrines

In this course, an overview of the Old and New Testament will be provided. Students will learn the importance of having a complete perspective on how God has worked with and through various people through the ages. Students will also expand their knowledge regarding "old" covenant era, "new" covenant era, key Biblical events (including prophesies), their meaning and how we're impacted today. At the end of the course, students will fully appreciate that "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." (2 Tim 3:16-17)

A survey of Biblical doctrines, including God’s Word, The Holy Trinity (God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit), Man and Sin, Salvation, Angels, The Church, and Eschatology (the part of theology concerned with death, judgment, and the final destiny of the soul and of humankind).


Prayer and Worship

This course will demonstrate and illustrate the power, importance, and effect of prayer through a survey of the role of prayer in the lives of the men and women presented in Scripture, with particular focus on the prayers of Jesus.. This course will teach students what prayer is and what it is not, and how God uses prayer to facilitate His will in our lives.

Students will be taught the key elements of true worship that glorifies God. In so doing, students will gain an understanding of what it means to worship God “in truth and in spirit” (John 4:24) and to discern true worship from a counterfeit.


Gifts of the Spirit

In this course students will be taught what gifts God has given to us in and through His Holy Spirit. The role, function, and scope of the gifts will be considered, along with considering the means by which an believer can know the gifts they have been given. Students will learn the importance and the reason that the spiritual gifts were given, and how they all operate in unison to equip the body of Christ to serve His purposes. Counterfeits to the spiritual gifts will also be considered to guide students away from that which does not glorify God.


Evangelism and Outreach

In this course students will consider the components of the gospel of Jesus Christ and will learn how to convey it to others. Students will learn the balance of becoming all things to all men to win them to Christ, while simultaneously avoiding compromising or softening the message. This class will guide students in avoiding the removal of key parts of the gospel in order to appeal to the sensibilities of others.


Apologetics

This course will provide students with the foundations to engage non-believers regarding Biblical truth and evidences for the Christian faith. Students will be taught the importance to “Always be prepared to give an answer for the hope of your faith” (1 Peter 3:15). Topics of study will include the historical and scientific accuracy and infallibility of Scripture, the certainty of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, and logically refuting opposing beliefs.
