Foundation Seminars

Foundation Seminars are short-term, content-driven courses designed to help you grow in a particular area of interest or need. These seminars help us comprehend the subtle intricacies and overarching truths of our God and the theology, ministry and history He has authored. Foundation Seminars are styled as lectures and discussion, with occasional reading assignments outside of class. Our vision for Foundation Seminars is to help adults acquire a comprehensive Christian education resulting in spiritual growth and service to God and others. Foundation Seminars are offered periodically. The topics below show you the types of courses we offer.

Church History:

The Reformation Dawns and Spreads

9:00 AM Sunday / Meets Online (Taught by Wayne Knowles and  Rich Main)
Despite the spiritual darkness of the Middle Ages and the doctrinal errors of the Roman Catholic church, the Reformation dawned and spread through the courageous efforts of faithful reformers such as Wycliffe, Hus, Luther, Zwingli, Calvin, and Knox. Learn about the “5 Solas” of the Reformation and hear the stories of these great heroes of the faith as we take a historical tour of the Reformation through Europe, Great Britain, and ultimately to the shores of America.
