Learning is always exciting and much easier when you're connected with excellent teachers.
Our facilitators have many years of Christian service in local church settings, have advanced degrees in theology
and are passionate about the courses they lead and bring great enthusiasm to our learning environment.
These classes are ideal for pastors, youth leaders, teachers, preachers, small group leaders, or anyone with a passionate desire to broaden their understanding of God and his ever-advancing kingdom.
If you sense a call from God to grow in your understanding of him and live in southwest Virginia, upper east Tennessee, or beyond these classes are ideal because they are local, practical, and affordable. In addition, we are now utilizing Zoom technology and offering hybrid classes both online and in person.
This is our first class that we offered in the spring of 2018 and was hosted by First Baptist Church in Gate City. Our classes have continually grown in number with each passing semester. Because of this we're looking to expand our outreach into other counties throughout southwest Virginia, upper east Tennessee, and beyond.
Our classes are made up of passionate, open-minded, followers of Jesus who are interested in learning more about God and joining him where he is working.
We're happy to announce that we will launch our 2021 Fall semester on August 23rd and the class we are offering is "Pastoral Care & Counseling." These classes are not limited to pastors and other church staff members but are for teachers, housewi
We gather to pray, study, and openly discuss the many ways God is at work revealing himself to each of us and others in his family. We realize that the book of Acts is open-ended with God continuing to write the story of his people though each of us as his children who make up the 21st century church. We are preparing ourselves to be used by God in local churches as he leads us.
We also provide a Regional Resource Library to aid students, pastors, teachers, and others in their time of study. Those who utilize this facility, provided by and housed at First Baptist Church in Nickelsville, have the convenience of free wi-fi and refreshments. If you're looking for a quiet place to connect with God away from the many distractions of life this is a great place to do that.
