Student Testimonials:

"...allows you to ask questions on the go. Immediate feedback and you can hear/see the context of speech as opposed to reading comments. I enjoyed the personal examples and relevant discussion that you would not get from self-directed courses."

"Reading the books and the discussions in class rekindled something inside my heart... the teaching and the fellowship was real and very edifying."

(Two credit hours ) Offered during the fall semester, this is a special class on understanding and applying the Biblical principles of personal relationships within the family. With the moral fabric of our nation already badly eroded by the persistent flow of humanistic thought into the mainstream of our culture, the traditional views of the family and moral ethics are quickly fading away. This course is designed for those who are sincerely interested in learning how to protect their own families from the destructiveness of worldly philosophies and to help others do the same through the application of the Biblical principles of parenting and other family issues. Class size is restricted for this course, so those desiring to attend should sign up as soon as possible. Single people are allowed to attend. A husband or wife may take the class without their spouse, but married couples are strongly urged to attend together if at all possible.
