CLI-Winter Quarter 2017

CLI is a Christian Education ministry of ABC-IN/KY Region for growing, equipping & enriching Christians for ministry in their home churches, communities and associations.


Participants are not required to commit to a leadership program!

Those seeking topics for personal enrichment or continuing education are welcome! CEUs available upon request!

Other Christian Denominations are welcome to participate as well!

Each class title consists of:

  • 20 hours of classroom instruction & interaction usually divided into four (4) non-consecutive Saturday sessions
  • outside reading along with assignments and/or projects which enrich class discussion and each student’s learning experience

It is strongly recommended students attend all class sessions, but one (1) absence will be excused, if notes are obtained from a student that attended the Saturday you were absent and if the instructor’s make-up assignment is submitted.

If you would like to register as an “audit student” and not earn credit (nor a completion certificate), the registration fee is less and the requirements listed for each course are only recommendations.

Registered students may invite their spouse to register as a “spouse audit” free of charge.

Class sizes are small and instructors meet each student where they are in their faith journey and educational capabilities.

Students will arrive each scheduled Saturday by 8:45am; class sessions start at 9:00am; class sessions end at approximately 3:15pm.






If registered by the EARLY registration deadline for a course title:

  • $125 for individual registrations
  • $99 per person for groups of 5 or more from your church

What a BLESSING for 20 hours of classroom instruction & interaction!

Normal Registration is $135; Late Registration is $150

New Option Now Available – Register as an Audit Student (and not earn credit nor a completion certificate) for only $90!!

If you are not officially registered by the Monday before the first class session, you are REQUIRED to verbally RSVP and be CONFIRMED by that date (see dates on registration form). This is for planning and preparation purposes. Thank you for your cooperation.

Introduction to the Old Testament (C102)

The goal of this experience is to introduce students to the history, literature, and theology of the thirty-nine books known to Christians as The Old Testament and to Jews as the Hebrew Bible (or Torah). It will provide a beginning understanding of the Old Testament story as well as a basic grasp of the contents, setting, and occasion of these thirty-nine books. The class will be taught from a perspective that affirms the divine inspiration of the writers in their own time period and the spiritual illumination of the reader (student) today.
