Elders

We are just starting to develop this curriculum. Before taking these classes, you should have attended all the classes in Foundations and Discipleship.

Biblical Content

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

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.
