Each semester, Kauai Bible College offers several electives which the students may choose from. No elective is mandatory; however, in order to graduate on schedule, each student is required to complete at least two credit-hours of an elective course during their first year. When selected, an elective course functions the same as any other class. Students may take more than one elective course, although it is also important to discern the workload that comes with taking additional courses. Students may also choose to audit elective courses, but they will not receive credit for the course. Here are the elective courses that are offered throughout the academic school year:
Students will be actively involved in studying three main subjects in worship ministry: practical worship ministry, sound and projection, and biblical worship principals. Each class we will set up our instruments, have a devotional discussion, and practice the music set list for the Wednesday night service. We will be working on the arrangement of songs, harmonizing vocals, dynamics, etc. Students will get hands on experience playing their instruments or working the sound projection, and leading the congregation as a team.
An in-depth study of the epistles to Timothy, Titus, & Philemon, with distinct reference to the doctrinal teaching and the Church’s situation as reflected in these writings. And an examination of how Paul handled false doctrine, the core teaching on leadership and church growth, and the application of Paul’s teaching to contemporary situations.
Life of Women from a Counseling Perspective
Women participating in this class will be look at the issues and wonders of being a woman, including biology, social issues, sexuality, marriage and relationships, and communication skills.
Objections and Heresies
This class examines early church doctrines, both orthodox and heretical. Students will look closely at early church teachings which deviated from apostolic tradition, and discuss how to biblically defend against these heresies. They will learn to distinguish truth from distortion, in order to increase their apologetic arsenal and to know what the Bible truly teaches.
Life and Times of David
This class will be a study of David’s life; his allegiance to the Most High, his heart and character, his victories,
the romantic and tragic events of his life, his failures and the resulting repentance and forgiveness, the glory of his poetry. It will be about the songs and Psalms and his legacy as Israel’s conquering hero and greatest king.
This will be a class on a view of the end times. You will be going through materials on the things to come using material from Footsteps of the Messiah, written by Arnold Fruchtenbaum, the founder and director of Ariel Ministries. This class will take an inductive look into the events before, during, and after the tribulation and provide the students with a better understanding on what is to come.
