203(Four credit hours) This course looks at the history of Israel during the captivity and return from Babylon to rebuild the Temple and Jerusalem, the intertestimonial years, and the time of Jesus Christ’s earthly ministry.  Emphasis is given to the centrality of the Person and ministry of Jesus Christ to Israel’s Messianic hope of a restored kingdom on earth.  Covers Ezra through Esther and Matthew though John.

304(Four credit hours) This course deals with the Poeticals, or Wisdom Literature of the Bible found in the books of Job through Song of Solomon.  Each book will be studied in its dispensational setting as part of all Scripture, (II Tim. 3:16).  The primary textbook for this course is the Bible.

211(Two credit hours)  This course presents the Bible as sufficient for providing answers for all of man’s personal problems in every area of life, and as such shows how it is to be used for dealing with one’s own personal problems or in counseling others who are in need.  Bible Counseling is shown to be the Christ-centered and Holy Spirit empowered practical application of Biblical truth to an individual’s life with the goal of spiritual victory, maturity, and fruitfulness toward God.  

216 (One credit hour) This course focuses on the practical application of God’s grace as the answer to the problems encountered in life by individuals, with the centrality of the Lord Jesus Christ being emphasized.  Students will gain a greater understanding and appreciation for the Dispensation of the Grace of God as they learn how it applies to personal problems.  They will also learn why a “law-centered” legalistic approach to life is actually the root cause of many of the personal problems that people have.  This class will include time spent in role-playing counseling sessions.

212 CHURCH HISTORY: (Two credit hours)  An overview study of the major events affecting the church from the time of the Apostle Paul to the present.  A knowledge of Church History is essential to understanding the doctrinal and practical issues that led to the formation of the various denominations and other groups that exist today.

307 – MISSIONS, & CHURCH PLANTING: (Two credit hours)  These two subjects deserve to be handled together as they enhance each other and compose a vital part of the local church ministry.

MISSIONS - Using Paul’s missionary methods, a workable mission philosophy will be taught.  Present world fields will be looked at with an introduction to Grace missionaries currently laboring in them.

CHURCH PLANTING - Extending the local church at home and in foreign lands was the Apostle Paul’s desire and God-given mission.  The Pauline pattern of church planting will be studied as the example the church of today is to follow.

 308 – DANIEL & REVELATION: (Two credit hours)  Because of their intricate relationship to each other these two important prophetic books will be studied together and compared.  Emphasis will be given to their dispensational perspectives and how they relate to other Bible books as well as the prophecies found in them concerning the fulfillment of God’s purpose for the nation of Israel, and the Lord Jesus Christ’s Second Coming in power and in glory.

311 – CHRISTIAN WRITING: (One credit hour)  This course presents the need to effectively communicate by encouraging letter writing.  Beyond this it promotes formats for writing articles, newsletters, tracts, printed Bible studies etc.

318 – INDUCTIVE BIBLE STUDY: (Two credit hours)  In this class students will learn and put into practice the principles of inductive Bible study as they work through a selected Bible book.  As the students go through the Scriptures they will analyze the book’s content and chart it as a whole, chapter by chapter, subject by subject, and verse by verse.  This is a rewarding study that will supply the earnest student with the tools for a lifetime of fruitful Bible study.  (317-Advanced Dispensational Hermeneutics is prerequisite for taking this course).

319 – YOUTH MINISTRY: (One credit hour)  This class focuses on the basic principles of conducting youth work in the local church setting.  Effective methods of youth ministry, Biblical counseling, activities, soul-winning, and camp will be covered.

321 – CROSS CULTURAL STUDIES: (Two credit hours)  This course is designed to instruct the student on the importance of understanding a given culture.  The student will also be made aware of the potential problems that can arise should one not seek to understand the host culture and tries to simply impose their own cultural understanding on those with whom they seek to minister.  By understanding the cultural nuances one can minister more effectively and with less difficulty.  This is critical to successfully carry out ones mission to proclaim the gospel of the grace of God.

322 – THE LIFE OF CHRIST: (One credit hour)  This course focuses on the life of the Lord Jesus Christ from a three-fold perspective. It looks at the Lord’s life as presented in prophecy; the manner and purpose in which He carried out His earthly ministry as found in the Gospel Records; and from His heavenly position today as the Head of the Church. Emphasis is given to His role as the Suffering Servant, His Headship of the Church, and how members of the Body of Christ are to serve Him today.

 324 – THEOLOGY IN MISSIONS: (Two credit hours)  This course is designed to view missions through the ministry of the Apostle Paul.  The theological basis for mission is born out of God’s commission to and through the Apostle Paul and God’s strategy for leadership, evangelism, training and establishing churches on the mission field.

 

ADDITIONAL CLASSES AND THEIR COURSE DESCRIPTIONS:  In addition to the classes listed in the preceding schedule, BBI offers a special class each semester.  These special classes are offered to promote the understanding and application of the Biblical principles that pertain to the relationships that exist between a husband and wife, and parents and their children.  1001-Biblical Principles of Family Life and 1002-Biblical Principles of Married Life or their equivalents are required for graduation from BBI.

1001 – BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES OF FAMILY LIFE: (Two credit hours)  Offered during the fall semester, this is a special class on understanding and applying the Biblical principles of personal relationships within the family.  With the moral fabric of our nation already badly eroded by the persistent flow of humanistic thought into the mainstream of our culture, the traditional views of the family and moral ethics are quickly fading away.  This course is designed for those who are sincerely interested in learning how to protect their own families from the destructiveness of worldly philosophies and to help others do the same through the application of the Biblical principles of parenting and other family issues.  Class size is restricted for this course, so those desiring to attend should sign up as soon as possible.  Single people are allowed to attend.  A husband or wife may take the class without their spouse, but married couples are strongly urged to attend together if at all possible.

1002 – BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES OF MARRIED LIFE: (Two credit hours)  Offered during the spring semester, this is a special class on the Biblical principles of marriage.  With the institution of marriage under assault because of the increasingly secularist/humanistic world view that has permeated our society, it is vitally important that those who want a secure marriage understand the Biblical principles of marriage, and how to apply them in their own relationship.  The roles and responsibilities of husbands, wives, and couples as well as how to solve the most difficult problems of married life will be covered.  Those who are interested are encouraged to sign up for the class as soon as possible.  Single people are allowed to attend. Married couples are strongly urged to attend together if at all possible.

1005 & 1006 – WOMEN IN MINISTRY*: (Two credit hours each) These classes are offered on a limited “as needed” basis.  These classes are for any woman who has a desire to grow spiritually and to learn more about what the Bible teaches about being a Godly woman.  They are especially recommended to those who are planning to be pastor’s wives, missionaries, Sunday School teachers, etc.  No pre-requisites are required for these classes.

**This class may be taken as a substitute for 209 Homiletics I from the core curriculum.  

1007 – ADVANCED PUBLIC SPEAKING FOR WOMEN: (Two credit hours) This course is offered during the fall semester in conjunction with 209 Homiletics I.  Berean Bible Institute recognizes that God uses women in ministry in unique and powerful ways.  Women use their gifts on the mission field, in the home, or speaking at women’s retreats or Bible Studies.  It is essential that they receive training to effectively present God’s Word wherever He provides the opportunity. Advanced Public Speaking for Women is designed to give them training in preparing and presenting the Word of God in an effective way in a group setting.  115 Public Speaking is a prerequisite for taking this course.  

INDEPENDENT STUDIES:  These courses are formatted in such a way as to allow the student to complete them during a semester without spending time in class.  The student receives a syllabus and curriculum and periodically meets with an academic advisor to discuss course content and progress.

1101 – READINGS IN MISSIONS: (Two credit hours)  This course is designed to further introduce the student to various works in the field of World Missions. The student will be assigned specific reading and writing assignments as well as be required to meet with a faculty member concerning the progress of the students work. 307 Missions and Church Planting is a prerequisite for taking this course.

 1102 – READINGS IN CHRISTIAN EDUCATION: (Two credit hours)  This course is designed to further introduce the student to various works in the field of Christian Education.  The student will be assigned specific reading and writing assignments as well as be required to meet with a faculty member concerning the progress of the students work.  Either 202 Christian Education I or 302 Christian Education II must be taken as a prerequisite for taking this course.

 

SPECIAL MINISTRY COURSES:  BBI occasionally arranges special ministry seminars in which students may participate to earn credit as an elective or in meeting requirements of a particular program.  These courses are designated as 1200 level courses and are announced as scheduled.

 

PRACTICUM'S: (Three credit hours)  The Berean Bible Institute Ministry Practicum is a practical training course that combines real hands-on ministry experience under the mentorship of a ministry professional.  This course is done through a non-traditional format in that it is measured based on the supervised time spent under a ministry mentor’s direction.  Students who participate in the Ministry Practicum must complete at least 100 hours of supervised experiential training.  It allows the student to participate in various ministry experiences in their chosen field of study.  Students are required to meet with a faculty advisor at the beginning of their graduating year to map out how this requirement will be accomplished.  No student will be allowed to graduate unless this requirement is fulfilled.

Upon completion students are required to submit a Practicum Resume detailing the ministries performed in meeting the requirements of the Practicum.  The student must have their Practicum Resume read and signed by their practicum ministry supervisor, before it is turned in to their advisor.  Practicum’s must be complete at least two weeks prior to graduation.

STUDENT MINISTRY PROJECT: (Two credit hours)  A student ministry project is the process in which a student plans and completes a thesis paper in the subject of the track the student will graduate in, either Pastoral Studies, Missions, Christian Education, or a broader topic in Interdisciplinary Studies.  The process is structured with regular meetings with a BBI advisor or faculty member in which the student will present and discuss his or her topic, research, outline, contents, etc. The thesis is required to contain at least 20 pages of written content.  Any student ministry project must be approved by an academic advisor.
