ADULT CLASSES:

How to Read The Bible - Dr. Michael Binder and Dr. John Dunne 
When the Bible is interpreted well it has been life changing for many, but when it is interpreted poorly it has been damaging. This class will focus on how to approach reading scripture in a way that can let the Bible influence our lives. Tools, resources and case studies will be used to equip class members.

City Vision  - Pastor Stephanie O'Brien & Pastor JD Larson 
What is God’s heart for the city? How can we discover what God is up to in Minneapolis? This class will explore, a theology of the city, missional tools for discovering what God is doing in our city, and practical experiences that help us learn how to participate in the Kingdom of God right where we are!

Intercultural Competence: Cathy Bergland and Dr. Ramón Pastrano 
Back by popular demand! With experience coaching in cross cultural leadership, Cathy and Ramón are skilled in helping leaders grow in intercultural competence. This class will include an assessment called the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) that will help the learner take next steps in their own growth. Cathy and Ramon lead Impact Lives, a non-profit based here in the Twin Cities. Read more at ImpactLives.org
