About this Track
Our core classes are generally the classes you would attend in your first year at seminary. We recommend that you start with these. They cover much of the same material as the BiblicalTraining Academy, but in much greater depth. If you want to continue this level of education, move on to the elective classes.
We recommend taking the courses in the order presented, as each subsequent course will build on material from previous courses.
