Instructor’s Note

I am deeply indebted to many people for the ideas contained in this course. I have been impacted and trained by Pastors Chuck Smith & Pastor Bob Hoekstra during my years at the Bible College. 

To create the course lectures, Pastor Bob Hoekstra supplied the basic framework for the curriculum. He exhorted me to refresh, revise and move forward in accordance with 2 Timothy 2:1-2. “You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.”
