COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

MULTI-MODAL

Discipleship of Men, Prof. Kirk Giles, May 5  & June 16 , 9:00am-4:00pm
This course explores the biblical design and role of men, and the importance of the discipleship of men in shaping healthy families and churches. Students will understand how to address the primary spiritual battles men face. Blueprint will provide a practical framework to assist church leaders to personally disciple another man, build a church culture that will impact men’s lives, and build a disciple making men’s ministry.
PAS503-1 (Seminary); MIN283-1 (College)

Life &  Thought of C. S. Lewis, Dr. Steve West, May 11   &  June 8, 1:00pm-8:00pm
C. S. Lewis has never been more frequently read or cited than he is today. He is widely recognized as one of the most influential Christian writers and thinkers of the last one hundred years. This course is designed to introduce students to Lewis’s thinking and writing. Students will focus on reading and evaluating a selection of Lewis’s most important works. Classes will be devoted to exploring and analyzing his thought, making it possible to more deeply appreciate all of his writings.
THS744-1 (Seminary); THE353-1 (Senior College Students)

Letter to the Philippians, Dr. Wayne Baxter, May 12  & June 23, 9:00am-4:00pm
This course examines Paul’s letter to the Philippians in light of the social, historical, religious, and political contexts of Paul and the church in Philippi in order to understand its message and apply its teaching to the church today.
BNT656-1 (Seminary); BNT360-1 (Senior College Students)

Book of Revelation, Dr. David Campbell, May 25 & June 22; 1:00pm-8:00pm
The course involves an intensive examination of the text of Revelation.  The various interpretive approaches will be examined in light of the text.  The main theological and pastoral messages of the book will be explored. The instructor will seek to dispel some of the confusion which surrounds interpretation of the text and often drives people away from paying it the attention it deserves.  The message of Revelation will be recaptured and applied to today’s world.
BNT690-1 (Seminary); BNT391-1 (College)

MODULE

Church Revitalization – Convictions, Challenges & Coaching, Prof, Keith Edwards, May 7-11, 9:00am-4:00pm
A one week biblically-based, pastorally focused, practically engaged exploration of church health and evangelism.
PAS625-1 (Seminary)

Great Women of the Faith, Dr. Michael Haykin & Dr. Linda Reed, May 7-10, 9:00am-4:00pm 
Women have played significant roles in church history.  Church history scholar, Dr. Michael Haykin, along with Dr. Linda Reed, will present for the first time at Heritage a survey of the story of the impact of these women from biblical times to the revivals of the 18th century and the missionary movement that followed.  Join us as we look at such remarkable Christians as Perpetua and Macrina, Queen Jane Grey and Phillis Wheatley, and Amy Carmichael and Elisabeth Elliot: “Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith” (Heb 13:7b).
THH603-1 (Seminary); HIS361-1 (Senior College Students)

Typical Problems in Biblical Counselling, Dr. Jeremy P. Pierre, May 7-11, 9:00am-4:00pm   
This course is designed to establish and apply a theology of human experience. Students will be challenged to consider the interplay between a person’s context and their response in the common problems of human life. God designed people to respond to the world dynamically, but humankind’s fall into sin introduced a tragic interplay between faulty response to broken contexts. The redemptive work of the gospel of Jesus Christ restores the ability to respond dynamically in faith to difficulties that plague people in a broken world.
PCS514-1 (Seminary); Prerequisites (PCS512-1 and PCS513-1)

Preaching that Moves People, Dr. Winfred Neely, May 23-25, 9:00am-4:00pm
Preaching That Moves People will explore what helps expository sermons gain and sustain a sense of movement and momentum from beginning to end.  This course is designed for preachers who desire to increase listener engagement and sermonic impact.
HOM685-1 (Seminary, GCBP students)

Spiritual Care and Counselling, Prof Nancy Wahl, May 28- June 1, 9:00am-4:00pm
This course explores the dual roles of pastoral care and counseling, including the development of a “pastoral care worldview,” and the exploration of the “redemptive” power of the pastoral encounter. It includes a study of the principles and methods of brief pastoral counseling and instruction in the use of Solution-Focused techniques or interventions, practical assignments requiring interaction with individuals, and an instructional lab.
