Vision and Goals
I believe God sees this course as a fellowship. We are a team
brought together for a season of growth through mutual training, challenge,
equipping, and discipline. All these serve the ends that every participant
attain new and lasting appreciation for the Holy Bible of the
Church of Jesus Christ, particularly the New Testament, and that every participating follower of Jesus gain
new and lasting love of the Bible and skill in the Church's practices of Scripture.
The Bible is an incomparable treasure, and we all need its riches. I teach biblical studies to help weave Scripture into the lives of students as firmly as it is woven into the life of the Church. More specifically, the course intends its participants:
I describe the general objectives of all my courses in my rules
of the game.
You and I are also about to do a whole lot of work, because while the
power to do these things is God-given, they don't come easily.
