HQ ONLINE SUMMER COURSES: July 5 – August 28, 2021
The UBF HQ Online School Program is designed to support and equip UBF leaders including chapter directors and local UBF ministries. This biblical program is concise and relates to UBF ministry. For summer 2021, we are offering two online courses (See the course descriptions below). All courses will be offered through the online platforms on neolms.com and Zoom. To register, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 21, 2021.
BIBLE DOCTRINES: THE CHURCH & THE FUTURE
The Bible Doctrine course is designed to provide gospel workers with a sound understanding of Christian faith based on biblical and evangelical theology. This course covers two different doctrines: the doctrine of the Church and the doctrine of the Future. Regarding the church, the following questions are addressed: What is the church? How can we recognize a true church? What is the purpose of the church? How can we develop a biblical church government? What is the meaning of Baptism and how should it be done? What is the meaning of Communion and how should it be observed? Regarding the doctrine of the Future: What does the New Testament teach about the end times? What happens when we die? When and how will Christ return? What are different views of the millennium? How is the book of Revelation to be read? What will it be like to live in the new heavens and new earth?
Our prayer is that we can grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior and be better equipped as ministers of Christ.
Instructor: Dr. Augustine Suh. We will meet 4 times (Mondays, once every other week; time: TBD); introduction to the course: Monday, June 28, 2021 (time TBD)
Textbook: The Puritans: A Transatlantic History by David D. Hall (Princeton University Press, 2019, 354 pgs.)
Course instructor: P. Mark Vucekovich
Most of us have heard of the Puritans but only in bits and pieces. Much of their story has been ignored, trivialized or misrepresented. Who were the Puritans, really? How and why did they begin? Where were they from? What did they believe? How did they live? What were their legacies? And what meaning does their story have for us today? These questions are all covered in Professor Hall’s book, which is the culmination of his life of historical scholarship on the subject. He is professor emeritus of American Religious History at Harvard Divinity School, and his book won the 2020 Philip Schaff Prize in American Society of Church History.
We’re all living in an extremely polarized society, where people and groups are so easily labeled and so little understood. And we’re submerged in an ever-increasing secular world where Christians are concerned about maintaining their integrity and having an influence on the broader culture around us. The goal of this class is not only to be better informed and have a stronger sense of history, but also to learn positive lessons from the Puritans’ devotional legacy. The class also aims to equip us to better engage with American young people today who likely have a largely negative and dismissive view of this group that has had such a large influence on the country’s history.
Course Dates: Saturdays, July 10 – August 28, 2021, (either once a week or once every other week; time TBD); introduction to the course: Saturday, June 26, 2021 (time TBD)
