The first ten students to complete the eight-course Bible Certificate program offered by The Bible Seminary will be recognized during Sunday morning worship services at Grace Fellowship UMC, 2655 S. Mason Rd. in Katy on Sunday, Dec. 18.
The adult students started the lay training program in 2008. Designed to train local church leaders and all who are interested in further Bible training for the expansion of God’s kingdom, the eight courses cover all 66 books of the Bible in evening classes that meet once per week throughout a typical semester.
Students love the program, and how it positively impacts their lives and perspectives.
“I feel such a closeness with God that I haven’t felt in such a long time,” writes one student.
“God has recalibrated what I value in terms of my choices and behavior,” says another. “God has given me a passion to look at the world and our opportunities differently.”
Since the inception of the program, more than 400 students have enrolled in Bible Certificate classes.
One of the 120 students enrolled in the Fall 2011 semester notes, “Getting a glimpse of God’s desire and plan for the earth has reminded me there is a purpose for why I am still breathing.”
The ten Bible Certificate recipients include Heidi Arneson, Nancy Borden, Silas Borden, Kathleen Bruscia, Krystyna Cawthorne, Pam Elliott, Lin Ermon, Janice Havins-Hamric, Paul Lyles, and Marilyn Payton.
In addition to upcoming Spring 2012 Bible Certificate classes, The Bible Seminary is launching a new, graduate-level Master of Divinity program starting with the Fall 2012 semester.
