Essentials is a course designed for people to get more deeply connected and informed about the life of Vox Church by examining the core values, distinct vision, and mission. Vox’s on-ramp to membership, this class also provides people with ways to get involved through community life and serving as they learn to exercise their unique gifts within our church family.
Christian Theology, a course of the Vox Institute, is designed to equip people to walk in greater confidence by providing a biblical foundation for the most important areas of Christian belief. Important to every Christian’s faith journey is a growing understanding of what they believe about God, the truths offered in the Bible and why.
Bible 101 is a core course of the Vox Institute available to all and composed of two separate ten-week semesters. Semester one offers a survey of the content of the Old Testament with semester two surveying the content of the New Testament. These courses do not need to be taken sequentially.
Forums will be hosted throughout the year by the Vox Institute, open to the church at large and covering a variety of different topics ranging from apologetics (how to defend your faith) to a wise and biblical approach to parenting in a digital age.
Bible Classes will be offered two times per year, either locally or regionally, covering a specific book of the Bible for between 6 and 8 weeks.
