Winter Term

Jan 04, 2021 to Feb 05, 2021
During the month of January, Faith Builders offers classes during a five-week term. The courses offered are focused in the areas of Bible, Theology and Music.

This five-week term offers courses and schedules to serve a wide variety of students, from young people seeking spiritual growth and practical teaching to seasoned pastors seeking refreshment and encouragement. Students can attend for two, three, or five weeks.

Winter Term includes courses to challenge and deepen your faith and equip you to serve your church better, whatever your phase or direction in life.

Full-time Faith Builders instructors are joined by church and mission leaders with teaching experience. A complete listing of courses follows.

The need to develop plans for responding to COVID-19 has delayed our planning for Winter Term. We do plan to hold Winter Term on the dates scheduled for 2021. We expect to have applications for Winter Term 2021 available by September 30.
