2. Students are also required to report their grades for verification to the Administrative Office every 6 months.  This is accomplished by means of the Transcript and Grades Form.

COURSE LIST


Practical Christian Ministry   
   If you are actively involved in a ministry in your local Church on a regular basis, then you are eligible for 1 credit per quarter (6 credits per year) for practical Christian ministry.  This course is a Local Church course and can only be taken if you are member serving in a local Church.  If you are not an active member of a local Church then obviously you cannot be actively involved in a ministry of a local Church and, therefore, you are not eligible to take this course and you are exempted from taking it.
  There are no textbooks or videos for this course.  It is a practical service course for which you can receive up to 6 credits per year.
  The requirement is that you submit quarterly report forms.


Critical Thinking    

    To carry out the command given to us in the Great Commission we must teach the students/members to critically analyze their beliefs using the Bible as the standard of judgment of right and wrong, truth and falsity. We will begin carrying out that responsibility by teaching Critical Thinking methods so the disciples can learn the truths that God has given to them, their reasons from the Bible for believing each of those truths, and how to logically defend those truths against falsity and the purveyors of false teachings.  (3 credits)
