CE501 - Worship and Praise
with Detrius Jones
The objective of this course is to teach the conditions under which God’s presence draws near to us. For we see God’s presence is conditional. He doesn’t come simply because we want Him to. He comes when the conditions are right. Only as we maintain the conditions that He has ordained for His coming can we hope to know the joy of living in His presence on a daily, moment-by-moment basis.

BL201 - New Testament Greek I
with Min. Samuel
This class goes deeper into the Koine Greek language with an emphasis on translating Greek to English. After a brief review of the fundamentals of the Greek language, such as Alphabet, vowels and diphthongs, verbs, 1st and 2nd Declension nouns, adjectives, and pronouns, we will proceed further with various cases, using translation exercises in the textbook to solidify the students understanding of the subject material covered. The second semester will focus heavily on translations, mainly from the textbook and Greek New Testament.
At the conclusion of this class the student will have a very good understanding of the Greek language, will be able to identify Greek Words by sight (no matter what the endings may be), define Greek Words with very little use of a Greek Lexicon, and will be able to translate selected passages of scripture from the Greek New Testament.
