BMATS-Arkansas to Begin Pilot Program

Starting in January 2016, BMATS-Arkansas will implement a pilot initiative offering a whole new package of modular courses to complement our existing course offerings.  The goal is to provide these special options several times per year (up to 4x) and will integrate progressive educational models with cutting edge technologies in order to address the most pressing needs facing contemporary Gospel ministers.  Because of the unique platforms being used, these courses are available only on a limited basis, but are especially designed to provide targeted training for ministers serving in increasingly challenging cultural contexts.  If you or someone you know is interested in obtaining the most theologically sound, academically rigorous, and contextually relevant accredited theological training available, here’s what you need to know:
  • The first course will begin January 14th, 2016 in Conway, Ark. with instruction lasting 4 days but with assignments spread throughout the Spring semester 
  • The inaugural course is entitled, “Selected Topics in Theology: TH621X, Doctrine of the Word, Revelation, and Scripture,” (see * below) I’ve attached the syllabus for your review 
  • The course is a collaboration between two theological seminaries providing instruction from three instructors whose varied interests, vocational, and academic specialties will uniquely enhance the classroom/educational experience 
  • This particular course is a one-time option but the cost is still the lowest of any ATS accredited seminary in North America 
  • If you would like to find out more about how to take part in one of the most innovative, academically rigorous, and theologically sound theological seminaries on the continent, you’ll want to contact either the BMATS-Ark. Administrator with questions, or the Dean to enroll. 
I hope to see you in class,
Prof. R. Brian Rickett
