Interested in Auditing a Seminary Course?

Feb 25, 2021 | News, Theological Seminary

In our Theological Seminary, you can earn a Master of Arts (MA), Master of Divinity (MDiv) and Doctor of Ministry (DMin) in areas such as Counselling Psychology, Leadership, Theological Studies, Educational Ministries and so much more.

Maybe you’re not interested in enrolling in a full-time graduate program, but you’ve always wondered what it would be like to take a Seminary course from Providence? Well, now is your chance!

“Our hope in the seminary is that there would be two to three courses every year that would be offered at a discount to church leaders. For this calendar year, we are offering two modular courses,” explains Dr. Joshua Coutts, Assistant Professor of New Testament.

During the month of May, Providence will offer live Zoom courses at a special reduced rate of $250 per course. The courses will cover content for a one-week module or two-weeks module. You can view the course descriptions below or click HERE for details.

Dr. Coutts is delivering a course on the book of Revelations, and says, “Although scheduled before the pandemic, both of these courses are quite timely in various ways, and I think could be a great blessing to pastors and interested church leaders.”

He continued to share that Providence Seminary is pleased to welcome as guest professor Dr. Victor Shepherd who is a Professor Emeritus at Tyndale University and a Professorial Fellow at Wycliffe College in Toronto. “Dr. Shepherd brings years of expertise and wisdom, and a pastoral heart to his course called Themes in Theology: The Human Person.”

Below are the course listings. If you have any questions, or need more information, send Gayle Penner an email at gayle.penner@prov.ca. OR you can register online HERE.

What does it mean to be human? How is the human reality shaped by relationship with God and others? What does it mean to consider humans as “in the image of God”? These and other questions will be explored in this Spring 2021 course, accessible to students, pastors, and interested lay people.

For many readers of the book of Revelation, the puzzling imagery and structure generates either an obsession with the book or else a wary avoidance altogether. Both responses are regrettable. This vision was entrusted to the Church through John to equip us for faithful witness to Jesus in challenging circumstances. This course seeks to recover the tremendous potential of Revelation for forming disciples of Christ by understanding it historically, theologically, and pastorally.
