  • The student will examine methods of evangelism from their spiritual and historical foundations and be equipped to share his/her Christian faith in “…Jerusalem, and in all Judea and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth” (Acts 1:8b).
  • The student will acquire methods of study and research that lead to lifelong habits of learning, clear thinking, and logical communication.
