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.
Mondays, 6-8:45 pm, August 21 – November 27.
Let the wise man hear and add learning, and let one who has understanding acquire guidance, in order to understand proverbs and epigrams, the words of the wise and their enigmas.” Proverbs 1:5-6
This course is devoted to the study of wisdom in the biblical books of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Job. You will learn to read the wisdom books in their ancient and biblical context, develop your skill in understanding Hebrew poetry, and strive to integrate wisdom teachings into your life and character. The class has a special focus on the book of Job and innocent suffering. These fantastic books express God’s wisdom as it is seen in the created world and applied to the every day human experience. Come learn with us and “acquire wisdom” (Prov 4:5).
The Book of Revelation: Dr. Richard Oster
Mondays, 6-9 PM, January 22 – April 30
