This summer’s class is an introduction to the Old Testament. You’re invited!

February 27, 2013

As was reported a few weeks ago, the Anglican School of Ministry will continue its academic mission preparing ministers, educators and leaders. Here is a link to the ASM home page. The continuing education school which I am privileged to lead has been reorganized and recognized by the Arkansas State Board of Private Career Education as an exempt religious institution. Our new name is Christian Foundations for Ministry and our goal is to help train lay leaders for service in God’s kingdom. Many of the classes are also appropriate as refreshers for clergy and to provide spiritual stimulation for those seeking a deeper understanding of the Christian faith. Here is the  CFM Catalog.

The principle summer offering is an introduction to the Old Testament and the text will  be an excellent workbook produced by the Trinity School for Ministry in Pittsburgh. This is a 12-week class and our first meeting will be on a weekday evening in late May or early June. There is no formal homework, no term papers and no exam. Students are expected to do about two hours of reading every week. The discussions are “live” on the internet and are not public meetings. Since I am in Little Rock, Arkansas, there will probably be a core group gathering in one location. Here is  the  Syllabus FOU 001.

The tuition is very reasonable ($150.00), the conversations are outstanding and it is always a very lively group. Non- Anglicans are very much welcome! My email and phone number is on the syllabus. Let’s rap.

FOOTNORE: CFM has a new, and very well received, course directed at local teachers and small group leaders. It would be my pleasure to lead that course this summer. Interested? You know where to find me!
