Lay Institute

The Lay Institute consists of a rotating series of classes offered three times a year on topics including Biblical Languages, Church History, Bible Study Methods, Bible Overview, Theology, Apologetics, and more. They are open to anyone college-age and above, whether or not they attend Denton Bible Church. While these classes are designed for the individual with no prior specialized theological or biblical education (i.e., Seminary or Bible College) they are typically more in-depth and comprehensive than your average Bible study. Students are provided class notes and a syllabus and are responsible for outside reading.

Cost: $15.

He holds both an M.Div. from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and an MA in history from the University of North Texas.
