Old Testament Survey
Professor: Dr. Asha Komanapalli
An intentional survey of the Old Testament history and teachings are presented against the cultural, geographical, and literary background of the ancient Near East. Comparative history and literature are used to supplement and explain the biblical text. This course includes a study of key theological themes foundational to the New Testament and Western culture. This course further approaches the Old Testament documents from a theistic, supernatural viewpoint as we believe that there is only one supreme God-the I AM. It is a journey acknowledging that through the historical process, God has revealed Himself to mankind through His mighty acts to the Israelites the person of the Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, and this is a vital preview to the New Testament.

The Power is in the Gospel
Professor: Kurt McWilliams
What comes to mind when you hear or read the word gospel? Do you think about the first four books of the New Testament; do you see a street corner preacher or maybe think about evangelizing? What is the gospel, really? What is this good news? In the book of Romans, chapter 1 and verse 16, the Apostle Paul described the gospel as the power of God unto salvation. In this course we will explore the power that God provided through the gospel of Jesus the Christ and the inheritance available to all believers.

7 Habits of Highly Effective People & Spiritual Disciplines
Professor: Kimberly Reichal-Vischi
Are you fulfilling your God given dreams to the fullest potential? Most of us have very many good intentions, but lose track as life keeps moving forward. It is important to take time to pause, assess, and refocus. In this course, we will discuss how to maximize your life while staying balanced through the principles of “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen Covey. The habits describe how to live proactively instead of reactively, follow through with your goals, avoid living in crisis mode, establish mutually beneficial relationships, listen empathetically, synergize efforts with others for greater outcomes, and avoid burn-out through self-renewal. The 7 Habits are an inside-out approach, establishing a healthy internal spiritual paradigm to be practically expressed outwardly. The course will include specific activities to help you develop your own expression of the 7 Habits.
Journey of Love: The Art of Receiving and Giving the Love of the Father
Professor: Kimberly Reichal-Vischi
The key of the Gospel good news is that “God so loved the world” but do we really understand what this love really means? The steps on this journey of love are: receiving God’s love, loving God in return, loving yourself, loving your neighbor, loving the unlovable, loving your enemy, and giving God’s love through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. In this course we will discuss through our own personal journeys of knowing and growing in this love. Coursework will include your own biblical research, you sharing your heart, and you reaching out to others with God’s love. This time will be interactive and personal, so come ready with a soft and open heart.
