CLI is a ministry of ABC-IN/KY Region in cooperation with ABC-Greater Indianapolis for growing, equipping & enriching Christians for ministry in their home churches, communities and associations.
GENERAL CLASS INFORMATION:
Participants are not required to commit to a leadership program!
Those seeking topics for personal enrichment or continuing education are welcome! CEUs available!
Other Christian Denominations are welcome to participate as well!
Each class title consists of:
- 20 hours of classroom instruction & interaction usually divided into four (4) non-consecutive Saturday sessions
- outside reading along with assignments and/or projects which enrich class discussion and each student’s learning experience
Class sizes are generally small and instructors do work to meet each student where they are in their faith journey and educational capabilities.
It is strongly recommended students attend all class sessions, but those students committed to earning credit may earn one (1) excused absence per class title and still have the opportunity to earn full credit for that class title.
Students are expected to arrive each scheduled Saturday by 8:45am; class sessions start at 9:00am and end at approximately 3:15pm.
Please RSVP as soon as possible to help us determine if a class can be held. We need 10 or more students for each class topic.
If you are not officially registered by the Monday before the first class session is scheduled to meet (and you know you plan to participate), it is very important to verbally RSVP by that date, so we can plan and prepare for your participation. Thank you for your courtesy and cooperation.

Introduction to the New Testament taught by Rev. Dr. Bruce Cochran
The primary goal of this class experience is for participants to acquire and develop skills necessary to understand the Bible at a deeper level. “Introduction to the New Testament” will introduce students to the history, Jewish and Hellenistic background, language, literature, and theology of the twenty-seven books known to Christians as The New Testament. This class provides a beginning understanding of the New Testament story as well as a basic grasp of the contents, setting, and occasion of these twenty-seven books. It will be taught from a perspective that affirms the divine inspiration of the writers in their own time period and the spiritual illumination of the reader (student) today.
