II. Literature Review
RES 101 RESEARCH METHODS [required independent study]
This course is an overview of research methods necessary for academic writing of a Masters Thesis.
APO 101 APOLOGETICS
COURSE DESCRIPTION The course will seek to formulate the rational basis for believing in Christian theism, with responses to objections and critiques of competing world views. Apologetics is the study of how to give reasons for our Christian hope (1 Pet 3:15). The course has three parts:
I. Christian Theory of Knowledge, II. Historic and Contemporary Views of Apologetic Method, III. Topics in Apologetics. In the first part, we shall ask what Scripture says about human knowledge, particularly the process by which a non-Christian comes to know Christ. The second part will deal with the controversy over apologetics and discuss representatives/thoughts of different apologetic schools. The third portion, will discuss issues under debate between Christians and non-Christians, such as the existence of God, the truth of Scripture, the problem of evil, and the currents of modern and postmodern thought.
MONO 101 BIBLICAL MONOTHEISM
This course is an introduction to the concept of the nation of Israel having one God who is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent.
CHMN 101 CHURCH MINISTRY
This course is an introduction to the various pillars of church ministry.
PTSTR 101 PASTORAL CARE
This course is an overview of the various forms of care provided by God's shepherds, such as emotion, social and spiritual care.
KING 101 KINGDOM PRINCIPLES AND CONCEPTS
This course will provide an overview of God's desire to establish His kingdom on earth; review Kingdom Principles that may help one learn to think and act like a Kingdom resident and ruler.
LEAD 101 CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP
This course is an analysis of the tasks, styles, and models of leadership, giving special emphasis to the biblical guidelines and church context of Christian leadership. In this modern era, Christian leadership is a subject terribly trivialized. Perhaps no other topic is so reduced to microwaveable principles than that of leadership. This course, to the contrary, claims that to be a better leader, one must be a better Christian. Leadership that is distinctively Christian is examined in the course through biblical, theological, historical, and practical analysis so that God’s people might more thoroughly follow the Way and show the Way to others.
COUN 101 INTRO TO CHRISTIAN COUNSELING
This course serves as an introduction to biblical counseling. It will focus on various types of support so that special attention is given to challenging issues that pain today’s generations. This course will provide a biblical basis for a counseling ministry.
