- Summer 2017: “Biblical Archaeology and the Christian Faith” taught by Dr. Bill Moulden. With the help of practicing archaeologists in the field, this course will bring to light the importance of this field to our Christian life and ministry. This introduction to archaeology will help students gain critical skills in how to think about the historical context of the biblical narrative as well as how to use archaeological data in teaching and preaching in the church. This is an online with a face-to-face option course. The 11 week course begins June 4 and ends August 19. The face-to-face portions of the course involve three Friday night/Saturday morning concentrated classes on June 9-10, July 7-8, and August 4-5.
- Fall 2017: “The Biblical Foundations and Practice of Christian Family Ministry” taught by Dr. Mike Shapiro, Dr. Mary Shapiro, and Sam Laing. This course will examine crucial issues in family ministry that will be relevant to families in church congregations, as well as to the families of ministry leaders themselves. Topics will include the biblical foundations of “family,” communication within marriage and family; mental health issues that ministers are likely to see in their congregations; how to build a godly family; and contemporary topics in Christian parenting, such as bible-based forms of discipline. Some of the pitfalls of ministry will also be discussed, such as how to avoid transference, how to draw appropriate boundaries, and how to ensure the ministry leader’s physical and mental well-being. This course will be held in conjunction with our ICOC “All Generations Family Conference”. Come to Denver for the face-to-face part of the class (August 30-31) and attend the Conference (September 1-3) as part of the class.

- Fall 2017: “Christian Theology and World Religions” taught by Dr. Douglas Jacoby. This course is an overview of the major world religions as they relate to Christianity. Although many faiths will be studied, we will utilize Islam as a lens by which to focus on key issues entailed in the planet’s competing worldviews.
