How to Enroll and Register for a Course
Begin by filling out the enrollment form.
There are three ways to participate in courses at the Founders Study Center. On the form, please select one of the following three options and complete the requested information:
1) Directed Studies: Students are guided through a course by a course mentor. Directed studies courses are offered during the Spring (January—May), Summer (May–September), or Fall (September—January) semesters. Students may choose from any of our available courses.
For the Fall semester (September 12, 2016 to January 31, 2017) there are 8 available courses:
Preaching and Preachers (16-sessions)
Pastoral Theology (16-sessions)— NEW
Theology of the Reformers (16-sessions)
Spiritual Depression (16-sessions)
Evangelism and Excellencies of God (10-sessions)
Intro to the Puritans (10-sessions)
Baptist Covenant Theology (10-sessions)
See our current course catalog for more information on these courses.
Students in directed studies will have access to their chosen course (both 16-session and 10-session courses) for the full duration of the semester (until January 31, 2017). See Important Dates.
2) Free Course Audit: Each semester we will offer a course that students can audit free. Our free course audit for the Fall 2016 semester (September 12, 2016 to January 31, 2017) is the 10–session Worship course.
3) Full Site Subscription: Students will have unlimited access to all our available courses for $12.00/month (currently there are 7 courses online; we will be adding the Pastoral Theology course on September 12th; see above). Students can select 2–5 months for a multiple month discount or a full year for just $99.00.
Orientation for the Fall 2016 semester will begin on September 6, 2016. Students who enroll for the fall semester will be given access to the Student Forum by September 6th to participate in orientation. The fall semester officially begins September 12, 2016. See Important Dates.
Auditing a Course
If you wish to audit the Worship course this summer, you can sign up for our free course audit. If you wish to audit another course (or courses) you can register for our full site subscription and select the amount of time you wish to have access to the course(s).
Finding a Mentor
Students who are taking a course as directed studies are responsible to make arrangements for a course mentor.
It is our conviction that the proper place of training for the ministry is not online, but in the church. While the Internet is a great means of making resources available, it is no substitute for personal training and discipleship. Therefore this Study Center serves in conjunction with a mentoring program that allows students to work through courses as directed studies with respected, experienced pastors. You can find the list of pastors available to mentor our courses under Current Course Mentors. A list of available openings for new students as well as contact information for each mentor will be available in the Student Forum.
What Will It Cost?
If you are signing up for our free course audit, you can do so at no cost. If you are registering to take a course as directed studies or enrolling for the full site subscription for more than one month, you will need to send in course fees.
