CURRENT COURSE DESCRIPTIONS
Tactics Gym (2/24-4/14)  Brandon Harris
In a world increasingly indifferent to Christian truth, followers of Christ need to be equipped to communicate with those who do not speak their language or accept their source of authority. Gregory Koukl demonstrates how to get in the driver’s seat, keeping any conversation moving with thoughtful, artful diplomacy.
You’ll learn how to maneuver comfortably and graciously through the minefields, stop challengers in their tracks, turn the tables and–most importantly–get people thinking about Jesus. Soon, your conversations will look more like diplomacy than D-Day.

Drawing on extensive experience defending Christianity in the public square, Koukl shows you how to:
• Initiate conversations effortlessly
• Present the truth clearly, cleverly, and persuasively
• Graciously and effectively expose faulty thinking
• Skillfully manage the details of dialogue
• Maintain an engaging, disarming style even under attack

Tactics provides the game plan for communicating the compelling truth about Christianity with confidence and grace.

 
Practical Skills for Living and Dying Well Hospitality Room (2/24-4/14) Adam DeBroux and Guests

As disciples of Christ, we want to respond to the grace we have received from God by offering our bodies as a living sacrifice. The Apostle Paul says that this is our true and proper worship. But how do we offer up our life as a holy and pleasing sacrifice to God? Over this eight-week class, we will learn some practical skills which will help us offer our past, present, and future to God as a living sacrifice. We will explore our past can see how it can be offered to God and used to witness to others. We will seek to understand our personality with its gifts and dangers. We will look to prayer as our expression of our daily dependence on God and prepare ourselves to offer our last days and death to the only God who can make them beautiful.  Adam requests that you sign up for this class at this link: http://bit.ly/NorthSubPracticalSkills

 
The Story of the Old Testament  Café (1/6-1/27, 2/24-4/14) – Katie Schmidt and Guests 

Have you ever thought about the overall story of the Old Testament and how to connect the dots within it? Are you able to keep that story together as you read through books that are not in chronological order? The Old Testament does contain an ongoing story that can be read much like a novel. But this story is not always easy to grasp. The individual books in the Old Testament have their own narrative, which can be understood with relative ease. Yet, stringing together all of the books to form one continuous story can be a bit challenging. This class will work through the overarching storyline of the Old Testament in order to see the big picture, understand God’s Word better, and see how the Old and New Testament fit together.
