The world is filled with challenges to biblical faith. There is a need and market desire for Christians to go deeper than their Sunday School learning. Believers who seek to be equipped to answer these challenges have few options short of attending Bible College or seminary. Dr. Sloan sees the need to offer a bridge of learning for the growing Christian in a manner that is accessible, on-demand, self-paced and self-directed. Furthermore, there is a desire among pastors and Christian professionals to enhance their qualifications through university-offered certificate programs. The Houston Baptist University Certificate of Study in The Story of the Bible will provide laypeople with substantive educational materials on theology, history, and interpretation concerning the meta-narrative of the Bible through interactive, online learning. Culminating with an annual graduation celebration, laypeople will have earned the achievement of: The Award of “Certificate of Study in The Story of the Bible.” The purpose of the certificate is to foster research and learning that promotes new ways of thinking designed to close the gap of biblical illiteracy in the church while inspiring Christians to love God with all of their minds (Matthew 22:37).
