Featured Courses

Here is a brief overview of some of our popular courses:

new-testiment3

New Testament –
Part 1, 2
(offered on-line and live)

Instructor:
The Very Rev. Dr. Reggie Kidd

The New Testament is a book of what St. Paul once called “God’s many-sided wisdom”(Eph3:10), wisdom that is central to diaconal ministry. In this two-part “flyover” of the New Testament, we will explore each book’s promise and challenge for our call to do the work of the ministry: “to make Christ and his redemptive love known” where we “live, and work, and worship”, … and “to interpret to the Church the needs, concerns, and hopes of the world.”

Know the Heretics
(offered on-line and live)

Instructors:
The Rev. Canon Dr. Justin Holcomb, The Rev. Andrew Petiprin

Heresy dominates many conversations these days. The frequency and volume of accusations suggest that some Christians have lost a sense of the gravity of the word. On the other hand, many believers have little to no familiarity with orthodox doctrine or the historic distortions of it. This course provides an accessible “travel guide” to the most significant heresies throughout Christian history.

Leadership 3D cube Word Cloud Concept with great terms such as vision, positive, winner and more.

Raising Up Leaders –
A Paradigm Shift
(offered on-line and live)

Instructor:
The Rev. Jonathan French

This course will consider why leadership matters in the church, biblical models of leadership, whether or not you’re a leader, and how to attract more leaders both like and unlike you.  This course offers an entirely new and fresh perspective on leading.

addiction

Addictions & Faith:
Where Do They Intersect?

(offered on-line only )

Instructor:
Julia Suereth

An in-depth look at the point where faith and God meet someone struggling with an addiction. Learn how spirituality can help free a person from the grips that deceive and control.
