Midwestern Seminary offers spring extension classes
KANSAS CITY – Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (MBTS) offers spring 2008 extension classes at Southwest Baptist University (SBU) and St. Louis beginning Monday, Jan. 28 and ending April 28.
Classes at SBU will be held at 1600 University Ave., Bolivar. Subjects taught are “History of Christianity II” from 1 to 5 p.m. and “The Holy Spirit” from 6 to 8:40 p.m.
The St. Louis extension will be located at St. Louis Baptist Association, 3859 Fee Fee Rd., Bridgeton. Subjects taught are “Elementary Hebrew II” from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and “Leadership in Church/Org. Change” from 1:30 to 4:10 p.m.
“One of the unique things Midwestern offers is our extension studies program. The extension classes are a great opportunity to study without traveling long distances,”said MBTS President R. Philip Roberts.
For students who live too far away to attend classes in Kansas City, Midwestern has brought the classroom to them. Students can work toward a degree without moving to the main campus in Kansas City through extension classes offered in cities closer to them. They can also begin the pursuit of their formal theological training in their own home or by attending classes for one week on campus. The greatest advantage of this program is that it allows students to pursue their degree while maintaining their work and ministry where they live. Courses are taught by Midwestern faculty members who commute to the extension site or by qualified adjunct faculty.
MBTS also offers Internet extension classes: “Principles of Preaching” and “Introduction to Pastoral Care & Counseling,” which begin Jan. 28 and end May 15.
