E2 Classes

e2E2 classes focus on Christians who aspire to leadership in the church on at least a lay level. These folks may hope to lead a Community Group, teach in Sunday School, or serve as an elder or deacon in the future. These classes intend to prepare God’s people to shepherd others. In this class you should expect the teacher to use the term “justification” without apologizing and then explain what it means and why it’s critical to understand this doctrine to be able to explain to others and apply it to everyday life.

We are excited to announce a new E2 class beginning this Fall on 2nd Saturdays from 9am-11am beginning in September. A number of our Seminary professors will be leading the teaching and discussion times for this training on a variety of topics critical to leadership development. Please sign up to receive the pre-class readings for each meeting.
