Ventures in Christian Discipleship courses announced

Published on Sep 16th, 2014 by wpd-office | 0

McPherson College has announced its course offerings in the 2014-2015 Ventures in Christian Discipleship program. Ventures courses, while not for college credit, offer high-quality instruction at a reasonable cost. The goal of the program is to empower lay people, especially in smaller congregations, to more effectively carry out the work of discipleship, following in Jesus’ footsteps to transform ourselves and the world. You are invited to journey with others on this new pathway sponsored by McPherson College.

For registration, course descriptions, and instructor introductions, go to . (See below a brief listing of course offerings)

Registering online is the preferred method. All course times are Central Time. Costs listed are per person. Group rates of $75 per webinar are available for five or more participants who wish to gather in one location for viewing and discussion. Prices are highly subsidized to encourage participation.

Technology Requirements for Online Courses: If you can surf the web, you will be able to participate in our online courses! For the best experience, we recommend that you have a computer with high-speed internet connection and external powered speakers. We encourage several people to share a computer to participate in a course together! No camera or microphone needed for most courses.
