Fellowship University

Fellowship-U-logo_no-line“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.” 2 Tim 2:15

Have you ever pondered those words, “rightly handling the word of truth” and found yourself lacking in confidence? Biblical knowledge influences how we think, and how we think feeds our behavior. This principle is clearly implied by the Apostle Paul in his words to Timothy. Perhaps, like many of us, you have a desire to grow in the area of biblical literacy but you struggle with knowing where to begin.

THE PURPOSE

Fellowship U is designed to provide you with a structured learning environment in which to increase your knowledge and understanding of scripture thus providing a greater capacity to love God and obey his promptings. This is a comprehensive curriculum designed to provide a foundation in the following areas:

  • Biblical Content
  • Theology
  • Biblical Interpretation

THE PROCESS

Fellowship Bible Church has partnered with BiblicalTraining.org to develop a custom course of studies designed to meet the above stated purpose. BiblicalTraining.org is an educational ministry providing Christian education through online lectures by some of the top bible scholars in the world, each an expert in their respective fields of study. Students are provided study notes and assigned weekly audio lessons which can be heard at their convenience. Classes of 10 to 20 people then gather for a weekly discussion forum led by a facilitator. Discussion questions are provided each week in advance in order to stimulate the discussion.

THE COMMITTMENT

Fellowship U is a three-year study. Each year consists of two 15 week semesters (fall and winter). Before enrolling, students are asked to commit to one full year (two semesters) of study in which they agree to listen to the assigned lessons and come to the weekly forum, prepared to participate in the discussions.
