The 22 fulltime students made it through the first quarter of the BSM training program, which started June 15 and ended August 20. Within this period that lasted for just a little over two months, they have taken up the following courses:
(9) Major Courses: Basic Study Skills, Servant hood, Prayer and Intercession, Philosophy of
Ministry, Early Biblical History, Spiritual Warfare, Practice of Gifts, Character
Development, Man,Sin and Salvation
(4) Supplementary Courses: Devotional Life, Research and Information Management, Voice
Projection Lesson, Basic Computing
The students also started to attend special classes in Early Childhood Education towards earning 18 units in ECE. They have also finished the Basic Track in the discipleship program of FARM,Inc. and have undergone pre-service training for their first ministry assignments within the FARM church life and ministry.
The quarter ended with two days of examination. But the students’ efforts were duly rewarded when they each received a brand new NIV Study Bible. The Bibles were gifts from the team that came with Pastor-Evangelist and BSM guest teacher Pastor Laurie Hennessey from Cornerstone, Sydney, Australia.
