UNTIL CHRIST IS FORMED IN ME

‘UNTIL CHRIST IS FORMED IN ME” is the promotional title of the course “Christian Character Development ” in BSM Online which starts this first week of August 2022

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
This course covers themes on Christian character: its meaning and the principles and process of Christian character development. A special focus is on how to have meaningful devotional time with the Lord which is a fundamental key to the development of Christian character.

THE ROLE OF THE COURSE IN THE BSM TRAINING PROGRAM:
Included in the 5M’s of the BSM philosophy of training is morals. We believe that the minister, above all, needs more than just academic qualifications. He needs the spiritual character development to qualify in the ministry. BSM is concerned not only with the academic development and ministry skillfulness of the students. We set Biblical standards for spiritual and character maturity, godly values system and lifestyles which are consistent with the high calling of the ministry. At the beginning of the school year, we see our students as God’s raw material that can be molded into the kind of people God wants them to be, contingent to their willingness to cooperate in God’s work of grace.

SYSTEMS IN AN ONLINE TRAINING PROGRAM

How is BSM Online compared to the in-person training program? We are not deviating from our fundamental purpose and philosophy of training as a ministerial school. Because of our philosophy of training, we seek to have interactive and engaging classes by maximizing the use of technology and a workable platform for virtual learning. With determination and creativity we have designed systems to enable us to cause the students fulfill the academic and non-academic activities that we have spelled out for their training. Here are some of these systems.

MAKING ATTENDANCE IN AN ONLINE CLASS WORTHWHILE

These few moments were captured from Max Learning Class, BEREAN Online course with Ma’am Zeny Calusay. She emphasized that every time students attend a class session, a learning, a change should take place in their knowledge, understanding, attitude, skill or behavior. That is what will make the time spent attending a class worth it.

BSM ONLINE SY 2022-2023 KICKS OFF WITH TWO CORE COURSES

BSM ONLINE SY 2022-2023 starts with two core courses; namely “Wisdom from Above” (Philosophy of Ministry) with Rev. Rey Calusay and “MAX Learning” (Effective Study Skills) with Rev. Zeny Calusay. The lessons in these two core courses when applied will help the students maximize their benefit from the other courses in the entire training program.

ALL ABOUT BSM

Two orientation sessions were conducted for the BSM Online Batch 02 students to give them all they need to know about Berean School of Ministry. Content of the presentations included: History and Purpose for Existence of BSM, Academic and Non-Academic Programs and and introduction to resources that will give students access to the ministries of Destiny City Church. It was emphasized that the student’s exposure to the culture of the host Church is an integral part of the training of the students.

ONLINE CLASS DRY RUN FOR BSM BATCH 02

A week away from start of formal classes, a dry run on how to profitably join and participate in the online classes in BEREAN.PH discord server was conducted with the seventy (70) plus students enrolled as the BSM Online Batch 02. A team of tech people were positioned to assist the students.

GETTING READY FOR BEREAN ONLINE CLASSES

Berean School of Ministry is a church-based training school of Destiny City Church. The natural setting for ministry training is the local church. It is because of our commitment to church planting and missions that BEREAN SCHOOL OF MINISTRY was started in 1986. We motivate, train and mobilize leaders for the great commission. Hundreds of our graduates are now serving as pastors and leaders in local churches, missionaries in local and foreign mission fields, and influencers and messengers of the

gospel message in the workplaces.

The restrictions due to the COVID19 pandemic led us to start BSM Online in 2021.We are not deviating from our fundamental purpose and philosophy of training as a ministerial school. Using technology and a workable platform, we make adjustments in methodology because of the current situation.

We are excited to start the second schoolyear of BEREAN Online and to tackle the challenges of the virtual setting for teaching and learning. The first few days or even weeks will be challenging both to teachers and students but it could also be fun!
