REQUIREMENTS FOR COMPLETION
2.1 – Saturation & Practicing God’s Presence
Second semester students are not required to go through the self-guided study a second time (though it is recommended); however, all second semester students will meet with a professor four times throughout the semester (every three weeks) to discuss practicing God’s presence, their personal saturation studies, and ask questions about these two foundational concepts.
2.2 – Classes
We believe that Jesus is speaking through the Word to source and reveal the answer to every subject and issue in our lives. We do not merely want to teach a class on ministry, we want to get into the Word of God and allow Jesus to speak through the Word to source and illuminate what Biblical ministry is. We do not want to teach history, we want to get into Scripture and allow Jesus to reveal through His Word the answer and source of history. Everything comes back to the authority of Scripture.
SPM classes rotate each semester; therefore, if you stay an entire year you will have taken all the course offerings. Whichever semester you begin SPM, you are expected to participate in that semester’s classes. For a description of classes that are taught, please visit course descriptions.
2.3 – Weekend Services
We view our weekend services as not only worship gatherings but also as classes in worship, Word, and the Body of Christ. Students are expected to participate in the weekly services as they would any other class.
Saturday Evening Service
Sunday Morning Service
Sunday Evening Cross Style Center Service
