Huntington College Graduate School offers winter semester courses at Indianapolis extension campus

FOR RELEASE
2002-12-10
Huntington, Ind.— The Huntington College Graduate School of Christian Ministries announces the winter semester schedule at its Indianapolis extension campus. Beginning January 2003, courses will be offered toward the completion of the Master of Arts in Educational Ministry and the Master of Arts in Youth Ministry.

The graduate school program is designed for the pastor, Christian education director, youth minister, or other ministry staff who would like to earn the Master’s degree or take specific classes of interest. The classes in Indianapolis will also provide an opportunity for laypersons, or those who are transitioning into ministry from a secular career, to develop their ministry skills.

“The opportunity for graduate school often requires a person to relocate or enroll in a distance-learning program,” said Dr. Gary House, Assistant Professor of Educational Ministries and Director of Mentoring at the Graduate School. “Classes at the Graduate School of Christian Ministries in Indianapolis are designed for those who want to further their education and ministry training without leaving their present ministry or work positions.”

Each course is offered in a non-traditional format, typically meeting one Friday and Saturday each month for three months. The block format is designed to be worker-friendly and to allow for an intensive time of interaction as students and professors discuss ministry ideas and issues.

Classes offered through the extension campus for the winter semester include Evangelism, and Small Group Processes. The Evangelism course will be held on Friday and Saturday, January 17-18, February 14-15, and March 14-15. The Small Group Processes course will be held on Thursday and Friday, January 30-31, February 27-28, and March 27-28.

Courses for the spring semester in Indianapolis include Counseling Troubled Families (Apr. 4-5, May 2-3, June 6-7), and Sociology of Adolescence (Apr. 24-25, May 22-23, June 26-27).

All classes meet from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Faith Missionary Church, located at 91st St. and College Ave. The cost for senior adults, 55 years and older, is only $100 per class. For more information, contact the Graduate School of Christian Ministries at 888/424-7231 or graduate@huntington.edu. Information can also be found on the Graduate School web site at www.huntington.edu/gscm.
