This is the final track in helping a church train its leaders. By "leader" we mean people like elders and deacons; the "Leadership" tab on the main menu bar is for semnary level training.
We are just starting to develop this curriculum. It is assumed that a person has taken all the classes in Track 1 and Track 2 before beginning Track 3.
The New Testament, its Basic Structure, Content, and Theology (30 hours), Dr. William Mounce. This is a more advanced class on the New Testament that will prepare a leader to defend the truth and refute error (Titus 1:9).
Practical Theology aims to spread a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples. We pray that honest, humble, rigorous interpretation of Biblical texts, as well as God-centered discussion of theological and practical ministry issues will kindle this passion and equip students to spread it winsomely to others.
