Bible Certificate Program Update
We’ve been so excited to hear that 186 of you were interested in the Bible Certificate Program at Southland University! We were blown away by the response and wanted to give you a few more details and make sure everyone gets an opportunity to sign up!
The Bible Certificate Program is a partnership between Southland and Cincinnati Christian University (CCU) which offers a series of higher level Bible learning experiences. Participants work toward completion of a certificate in Theology and Bible Doctrine. CCU faculty, teaching at Southland, will offer an accurate and relevant study of Scripture which will change the way you live out the truths of the Bible. What does the certificate mean? It’s not a degree. It’s not a coupon for a free coffee at our Cafe’. It’s just proof that you put in the work and have a greater understanding of what happens between Genesis and Revelation.
We'll be offering six classes over the course of three years which will cover the basics of the Old and New Testament, as well as theological concepts in Scripture. These classes are set on a college level, a step beyond what we normally teach through Southland Bible Studies.
Here’s what the entire program entails:
- The Bible Certificate Program takes place over three years. You must complete six courses in those three years. Each course will consist of six sessions. Within each course, you will only be allowed two absences. If you aren’t able to attend an entire BCP course, elective courses will be offered. You may participate in up to two electives over the three years to satisfy program requirements.
- The cost of each course is $10 for a total of $60 over the three years. That covers materials and a portion of the professors’ expenses. If that cost is a problem, a limited number of scholarships may be available.
- After each course there will be a comprehension paper due from each student. Each paper will be graded as pass/fail to determine whether credit is gained.
If you think you’d be interested, be sure to check out the Southland University page. The first class starts Thursday, April 16, from 6:30-8pm at the Richmond Road campus in Parkside Theater. If you’re ready to sign up, you can register here for the first class. The $10 fee is due at registration.
No childcare will be provided for this class.
Thanks again for your interest!
