The Leadership Institute

The Leadership Institute Class

Triad Baptist makes the classes offered through The Leadership Institute (E4-12) available to people that are members of other Christian churches.  One does not have to be a member of Triad Baptist.  To enjoy this benefit, one simply needs to be a member in good standing with his or her local church.

We are excited to offer our Winter/Spring class of The Leadership Institute. This course can be taken for personal development or for master's credit: participants may decide the depth that they want to participate in the course. 

(After registering for the course, please contact Adam Wingate to ensure your registration was processed.)


Class: Survey of Theology Overview (THE506 e4-12).

In Survey of Theology, professors such as Larry Tyler, Alan Cox, Rob Decker, Jerry Hullinger, and the late Hoyle Bowman, along with several others, commit to communicating biblical and practical theology. This course contains an overview of the key doctrines of Systematic Theology and its application to the Christian faith. The study of these basic doctrines has always been a core component to any degree at Piedmont International University and will help the student to understand theology and put it into practice for life-long ministry. While this course is research intensive, it will help the student to engage a theological topic and produce a well-argued position on that topic. In this course, the presenters will address topics such as:

  • Bibliology: The Doctrine of the Bible
  • Theology Proper: The Doctrine of God
  • Anthropology: The Doctrine of Man
  • Hamartiology: The Doctrine of Sin
  • Soteriology: The Doctrine of Salvation
  • Ecclesiology: The Doctrine of the Church
  • Eschatology: The Doctrine of Last Things

The course presenters are chosen experts in their respective fields of theology and give the student substantial resources to demonstrate a rationale for their systematic beliefs. While the areas covered in this course represent an overview of Systematic Theology, there are several additional resources included in the course workbook and course texts that will aid the student in continuing to develop their personal application of that theology well beyond this course.
