Old Testament Survey New Class Fundraiser
March 30 Fundraiser Update
Thank you to all who have helped raise 8,633 (35%) of our $25,000 goal!
If you have not yet donated, would you consider donating today?
We have tentatively rescheduled the recording for August because of the pandemic.
Your donation helps us cover the costs of recording, editing and creating supplementary material for this Old Testament Survey class. As is the case for all our new content, the only way we can complete the production of this class is through your generosity!
You can also JOIN US in our recording studio with Dr. Miles van Pelt. Our professors find that it is an enormous benefit to be able to record in front of a live audience and this, in turn, makes your learning experience better. At the end of each lesson, you get to ask questions and interact with Dr. van Pelt.
