Upcoming Courses

Biblical Basics of
Spiritual Warfare

Spiritual warfare is not something for which only the elite should be trained but is a part of every disciple's calling. In this one-hour workshop, we will review the biblical evidence for the practice of spiritual warfare. We will also learn to identify and pray against specific "strongholds" or areas of our personal and societal lives which are not in alignment with the Kingdom of God. As we pray "your kingdom come" from the Lord's Prayer, we take our place under the direction of the Lord of Hosts in the battle raging in the spiritual realm.

Sacred Pathways

In his wisdom, God created imbedded humanity with unique temperaments and personalities. As a result, the Christian Church cannot advocate a one-size-fits-all spirituality. In this course students will have the opportunity to read and discuss Gary Thomas’s book, Sacred Pathways: Discover Your Soul’s Path to God, a work that discusses nine temperaments and how they can help Christians better understand personally approaching God.

The Learning Cycle

This workshop on curriculum design is adapted from "The Learning Cycle" by Muriel and Duane Elmer (Intervarsity Press, 2020). In this presentation, we will learn how to structure curriculum so that those we teach remember, value, and are changed by the lessons we give.

Exalting Jesus
in Ephesians

In Ephesians, the Apostle Paul, the great interpreter of the mind of Jesus, opens to us the wonders of Jesus’ person, work, and call! In this class we will soak in the letter the apostle Paul wrote from a prison cell in Rome. We might consider the first half good news, and the second half good advice! The first half of the letter is about the “wonder of grace” and the second half is about the “walk of grace.” As we will discover, grace brings us into intimate relationship with Jesus Christ―“In Christ” as Paul will say again and again.

The Book of Job:
Faith in Seasons of Suffering

The Book of Job is one of the more mysterious and difficult books of the Bible. Its central theme of faith in the midst of suffering is clear, yet sounding the depths of its response to the theological problem of pain and evil is challenging at every level. We will conduct this course as a multinational Bible study comprised of smaller discussion groups.

Jesus in the
Jewish Holidays

This course will focus on the major Jewish holidays in the Bible: Passover, Shavuot (Pentecost), Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Succot (Feast of Tabernacles), and Shabat (the Sabbath). We will review how and why they are celebrated. In addition, we will try to understand how each one represents elements of Jesus’ life, ministry, and purpose.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer:
His Life and Theology

Dietrich Bonhoeffer stands as one of the most influential theologians of the twentieth century, and yet his life and theology are still something of an enigma. Hanged at the age of only 39 on April 9, 1945, for his part in a conspiracy to assassinate Adolph Hitler, Bonhoeffer is remembered for his versatile and brilliant contributions to our understanding of the unity of the church, the significance of grace in a secular age, and the practice of Christian community.

Prayer in an Age of
Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality (VR) is a technology that has long existed in the twilight between science fiction and science fact. First introduced to the consumer market in 2016, VR now offers a number of unique advantages to global prayer networks. This interactive workshop will offer an orientation to Prayer Room Neapolis (Aqueduct Project’s first actual VR Prayer Room) and discuss some of the particularities of facilitating prayer in an immersive environment. Participants are not required to have access to a VR headset in order to attend.

Introduction to Prayer

Learning to pray is the proper starting point for the study of theology. This course is designed to give class participants a basic introduction to the practice and theology of prayer in the Christian tradition. Course sessions will explore the theological framework of prayer and study the prayers of the Bible as a pattern for our own prayers. Following this class, students will be able to evaluate the dynamics of their personal prayer lives and be prepared to lead corporate prayer services.
