Memphis School of Preaching

Ongoing Spiritual Training

The Memphis School of Preaching's M.O.S.T. (MSOP Ongoing Spiritual Training) program will be resuming on Thursday, February 11, 2016. The classes will meet every Thursday between February 11 and May 12, with the exception being March 31 which coincides with the school's lectureship Preach the Word. Again this year we are excited to offer all three classes not only on campus but also over the internet (please visit for details on how to take part on-line). On campus, classes will meet in room 405. These classes may be audited or taken toward a certificate (awarded after the successful completion of 72 semester hours) or an advanced diploma which is the equivalent of an MA in Biblical Studies (awarded after the successful completion of 72 hours and contingent upon a student's having completed the MSOP two-year program or a like training program or having a BA or BS in a Biblical area from a four-year college). Here are the courses being offered this semester:

SPRING, 2016, Course Offerings

11:00 AM - 2:00 PM Acts (Part II) K.A. Mosher, Sr. 4 hrs.
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM New Testament Introduction D. Cates 4 hrs.
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM The Messiahship of Jesus D. Walker 4 hrs.

FALL, 2015, Course Descriptions

Course #626: Acts (Part II),, taught by Keith A. Mosher, Sr. [B.A., M.A., M.Th., D.Min.], will be from the perspective of a harmonizing of Paul's epistles with the book of Acts.

Course #620: New Testament Introduction, taught by Daniel F. Cates [B.A., M.A.], will be an introduction of every book of the New Testament from a "lower criticism" perspective; that is, seeing the who wrote the books when and from where, why they did, and what students of the Bible can gain from each book.

Course #649: The Messiahship of Jesus, taught by Don Walker, will examine the “eternal purpose of God” as it centers upon Jesus Christ, the Son of God. The Messianic ideal will be presented through the pages of Scripture in both the Old and New Testament. The student will examine what Scripture teaches concerning the Messiah from everlasting to everlasting and the New Testament’s claim that Jesus of Nazareth is the Messiah of God will be examined in light of Old Testament teaching.

As in the past, the courses will be of special interest not only to preachers, elders, and Bible class teachers, but, indeed, to all Christians! Also, as in the past, there is no charge for these classes as far as tuition or fees of any kind are concerned, regardless of whether one is just auditing or taking the classes toward the certificate or diploma. Registration will take place at the first class meeting on February 11, 2016 (copies may be made of the attached enrollment form for any who would be interested in filling out the form before classes begin). The Memphis School of Preaching is located at 3950 Forest Hill Irene Road, Memphis, TN 38125. Feel free to call if you have any questions; the number is 901-751-2242. We look forward to helping you make the MOST out of your spiritual training!
