We have a series of courses and lectures that will help you study church history.
We have a for-credit version of this that is suitable for those seeking standing in the Christain Church (Disciples of Christ). It is a fully-interactive course, and student assignments are assessed and graded.
We also have a non-credit version that is suitable for laity and small-group studies. It is a video-only lecture and does NOT include assignments or assessments. The non-credit version is perfect for those people who want to learn more about the history and polity of the Christain Church (Disciples of Christ.)
Related courses, taken sequentially in series is called a "study track." Our study tracks are composed of both courses and lectures that are directly related to their subject; in this case, congregational transformation.
For more information about our study tracks, see "About Our Study Tracks."
Please note that our lectures and self-paced study courses can be taken at any time. However, our fully-interactive, as synchronous courses with an instructor participating and leading the course, courses are only available at certain times to accommodate the instructor's schedule. Fully-interactive courses are usually offered on a term basis in our Fall, Spring or Summer term. While you are waiting for a fully-interactive course to be scheduled, you can backfill with our lectures and self-paced study courses.
Shown below are our currently available courses and lectures for this study track along with some suggestions about their order and use in this study track.
