Theological Education: centers on courses that are designed to give students a broad introduction to primary areas of study that are requisite for the professional ministry. Courses cover: Bible, the History of Christianity, Theology, Ethics, Homiletics & Worship, Pastoral Care, and Christian Education.
General Studies: courses that introduce students to the liberal arts and humanities, such as, language & literature, Western Civilization, history, philosophy sociology, art & music appreciation, anthropology, religious studies, political science, etc. These courses will offer upper and lower-level introductions to the individual disciplines. The general studies courses will provide students with the foundation that is essential to all future academic work, whether in a secular or religious institution. It also prepares students for professional vocations. Moreover, the general studies curriculum will ensure that our students will be able to UNDERSTAND AND COMMUNICATE with other people, even as they seek to minister to them. General studies is central to any serious higher education program.
Practical/Skill Instruction: courses in practical, hands on, supervised learning, i.e. field education. These courses are skills-oriented, and seek to put students directly in the work context so that they may do ministry up-close, either in a church or a Para-church setting. These courses will prepare students for work after they have graduated.
Holiness-Pentecostal Studies: a core of courses that examine the history, theology, and values of the Holiness-Pentecostal tradition, of which the FAC is a product. The aim is to demonstrate the distinctiveness of the Holiness-Pentecostal tradition and to show the continuities and discontinuities between the traditions.
