Classes Available to Audit for January 8 - March 15

Bible Hour: Based on the principle of “hiding God’s word” in our heart, the time will be used for an organized process of memorizing scripture, scripture facts and scripture relationships.

Life of CHRIST: A comparative approach to Matthew, Mark and Luke as the “synoptic gospel accounts.” The parables and miracles will be studied in detail.

Homiletics 3: How to plan/prepare sermons in advance and how to plan a balanced year of sermons. The full-time students will present topical, textual and expository sermons they have prepared.

Greek 3: A study of the value and nuances of the Greek language along with translation work using knowledge gained in Greek 1 & 2, and continuing work in Greek vocabulary.

Numbers/Deuteronomy: A topical/textual study of Moses as a leader, the wilderness wanderings and the warning speeches of Moses before Israel disperses to their tribal possessions.

Bible Gleanings: This class will read through books of the Bible with considerable discussion of information and truths gleaned from each chapter.

Joshua/Judges/Ruth: A topical/textual study of the early history of Israel in the promised land including the conquest of Canaan and the period of the judges.

Church History: This class begins at the end of the NT and tracks the LORD’s church through the end of Roman rule and into Catholicism.  It will document the errors, chronologically, that led to the growth of different fractions and denominations, up until the Reformation Movement whereby the reformers tried to correct these mistakes. The Restoration begins in Holland and follows the pilgrims over to America in search of simple NT Christianity. This class tracks the different cities where the LORD’s Church emerged and why and how that eventually led to men who found commonality in Scripture to restore the Lord’s Church. It includes how they were able to evangelize a new country through writing, radio, colleges, and the providence of God, uniting all races after the Civil War.

Preacher’s Work – Hermeneutics: A study of Hermeneutics is the science of interpreting scripture based on rules of interpretation and proper exegesis. Biblical hermeneutics also requires understanding the methods GOD uses to reveal His truth, i.e. direct statement, implication and exemplification through literal and figurative language. This class will teach and harmonize the principles of hermeneutics and exegesis as they are applied to scripture.

Auditing Classes

Classes may be audited at no cost except for purchasing the book(s). If an audit student needs a book for a class, they may purchase it from the school. Audit students should register no less than two weeks before class starts. This allows for the school to purchase the needed books and distribute them the first day of class.

Audit students are not required to complete homework assignments, tests, or class projects. However, we encourage you to do so to get the full benefit that can be received.

Ladies Online Class

Currently, we have one online ladies class each year. The class topic varies and will be advertised in advance. It starts in September on the Thursday after Labor Day and is a 10-week course taught by Teresa Glenn and Stephanie Ransom. This class is not a credit course.

Registration for the ladies class opens the first of August and closes the week before class begins.
