The church audit program serves members of congregations which support the school with at least $1200/year ($100/month). Members of these congregations may audit select courses each semester for $25 per course. That’s right – any member of a supporting congregation can attend the same graduate courses as credit students and learn from world class professors for next to nothing!
What is an auditor?
An auditor takes a course, but does not receive credit. Some auditors will read all of the assigned texts and even take the exams, others will simply come to the class meetings to hear the lectures. Click here for registration information.
What courses are available?
HST offers a variety of courses in ministry and theology, and we try to make as wide a range as possible to our church auditors. These are the upcoming church audit courses. Click the course name for the syllabus (if available), and the professors name for information about the professor.
Monday, 6-8:45 pm, August 18 – December 8.
This course provides an introduction to historical, biblical, and cultural aspects of worldwide evangelism, with the purposes of both preparing individuals for service as missionaries and assisting sending churches in their tasks. This includes a survey of principles, methods and practical aspects of developing and maintaining a missions ministry in a local church. Recommended especially for missions committee members.
Tuesday, 6:00 – 8:45, August 19 – December 9.
Throughout the centuries the Gospel of John has been the favorite Gospel for many Christians. It is often described as a stream a child can wade in and an ocean an elephant can swim in. Bring your (metaphorical) swimsuit for this in depth look at the deeps of John’s great portrait of the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us. You will dive into the English text of the Gospel of John, and focus especially on major theological themes of John’s account of Jesus’ ministry and death.
