Church Audits

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.

mark.powell.2The Trinity and Christian Spirituality: Dr. Mark E. Powell
Tuesday, 6-7:30 pm, January 20 – May 12.

Dr. Mark E. Powell has recently released a book, Centered in God: The Trinity and Christian Spirituality. This one-credit course explores this doctrine that is so central to the Christian faith in a way that will help Christians not only understand more about God, but will help them grow closer to God. Dr. Powell created this course with church auditors in mind.

Huffard-05-webMulticultural Ministry: Dr. Evertt W. Huffard
Thursday, 6:00 – 8:45, January 22 – May 14.

Dr. Huffard has cross-cultural experiences as a missionary to Muslims in Israel and in inner-city ministry in LA. He combines this personal experience with academic preparation in teaching multicultural ministry. Building on a biblical theology of diversity, hospitality, reconciliation, and inclusion, this course will study issues of leadership, worship, and evangelism in a multicultural church. Models of multicultural churches will be surveyed. Application to various ministries will be experienced through a field education experience and case studies.
