serious training, for the church

This Spring, take a step to increase your knowledge of the Bible, theology, and apologetics. You can commit to the whole session, or you can pick and choose which classes to attend.

There will be six classes in total, each covering one book. We highly encourage attendees to read the book in advance of each class.
