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.

Spiritual Leadership: Dr. Evertt Huffard
This course meets in the monthly intensive format, February 1-2, March 1-2, and April 5-6. Class schedule on Fridays will be 1:00-4:45 PM and 6:00-7:45 PM; on Saturdays 8:00-12:00 AM and 1:00-2:45 PM.
This study of the dynamics of spiritual leadership will focus on your personal development as a leader in three areas: life maturing, inner life maturing, and ministry maturing. The primary methodology for this course will be biographical; a heuristic model will be used for a life-history approach to understanding spiritual influence. Our goal is to discover principles of spiritual formation in our own lives in order to become more effective leaders and mentors. Because spiritual gifts, life experiences, and personality uniquely equip us to serve God, we do not all develop the same way at the same time. However, the study of patterns of development can yield principles for application to mentoring. This study should leave you with a greater awareness of how God shapes your life. To some degree, this will be a practicum in the providence of God with an emphasis on the implications for spiritual formation and mentoring
