Perspectives on the World Christian Movement Course
Perspectives on the World Christian Movement Class will be offered at Valley Community Baptist Church from January – May 2018. With diverse reading selections and outstanding lecturers from all over New England and beyond, this is an invaluable course for anyone who wants to grow in his/her faith (especially if you have a heart for missions). Homeschool families with students in high school or local college might be particularly interested because it can be taken for college credit.
Dates: Tuesdays from Jan 23 – May 15 (15 weeks, no class on 2/20 and 3/27)
Time: 6:30 – 9:00 pm
Location: Valley Community Baptist Church, Avon
Cost: Cost varies based on the level taken and includes the text and workbook. The class is offered at three different levels.
- Key reading ($250). Involves attending the weekly lectures, roughly 25 pages of reading per week, and submitting five personal reflections (short answer).
- Certificate ($250). Requires the key reading work plus an additional 20 pages of reading per week, weekly lesson review questions, and a class project.
- College Credit ($450). Requires the certificate level work plus an additional 15-20 pages of reading per week, a mid-term and final exam, and a more comprehensive class project.
Note: once you’ve taken the class at any level, you may take it again in the future for free or minimal cost (anywhere I think!) People from Converge churches can get a $100 rebate upon request after attending the first four classes.
