“Hard work never killed anybody, but why take a chance?” – Edgar Bergen.
You may be very well fed from the pulpit and in Sunday School at your Church. And while we greatly appreciate the excellent preparation of our pastors and teachers, you and I know we could benefit all the more from doing some digging ourselves. We know we need to wrestle with God’s Word and the deep truths we find there about God and ourselves. It will take some hard work. But it probably won’t kill you.
If you’re ready to be challenged, to wrestle with the great truths of Scripture, to dig deeply into God’s Word, then Birmingham Theological Seminary is ready for you. Contrary to popular opinion, you do not have to be a pastor or headed into ministry to take classes at BTS. Many of our students are simply taking a class or two to learn and to grow. We encourage you to do the same.
The fall semester kicks off on September 5 and the course listing is available at bts.education or at our office in A203. Please consider taking a course in Bible, theology, counseling, apologetics, or Church history. Most classes are in the evenings on weekdays, though there are a couple of 6 a.m. classes for the early birds.
In recognition of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, we are offering a course in Birmingham on The Life and Theology of the Reformers on Wednesday nights at 6:30. This course is free for new and returning inactive students and will feature guest lectures by Dr. Harry Reeder on Luther, Calvin and his recent Reformation tour.
We look forward to seeing you in the classroom!
