|Help the Hurting, Share the Shepherding||Elective||$100.00 ($50.00 if family enrolled)|
|Course Description : Learn how you can come alongside your pastor to give biblical hope and help to your church friends and family. Our churches are full of hurting people. They struggle with marriage, depression, loneliness, anxiety, anger, wayward children, and so much more. They need someone to walk beside them and help them gain biblical perspective and hope to resolve their problems. But pastors can’t do it all. Come learn how people change, how to ask better questions, and how to connect the riches of Scripture to the problems of life. Your advice and conversations can be wiser and can touch the hearts of those you love.|
|How to Interpret and Teach the Bible||Core||$100.00 ($50.00 if family enrolled)|
|Course Description : A basic introduction to Bible exposition with an emphasis on the teaching and preaching of Scripture. The course includes an introduction to interpretive principles necessary for arriving at the Holy Spirit’s intended meaning of a given passage, and then developing that meaning into engaging sermons and Bible lessons.|
|Romans||Core||$100.00 ($50.00 if family enrolled)|
|Course Description : This class will offer an analysis and exposition of Romans, with attention given to theological and interpretative difficulties. Additionally, the class will offer an evaluation of relevant practical issues and proper textual application for today.|
