PUBLICK MINISTRY I.-III.

Please read all instructions before proceeding to your first class.

General instructions for this course:
1.
You may not complete more than one lesson in one week in one book unless instructed otherwise.  That does not mean more than one book per week but rather not more than one lesson per week in whatever book your are currently studying.
2. 
You may not study in more than one book at a time.  They are to be studied sequentially.  That means you must complete the first in the series before going on to study in the second book.  Then you must complete the second book before going on to study in the third book.
3. 
Each section is worth 1 credit; however, you must complete the entire 3 book course and pass the final test in order to earn any credits at all.
4.
  All tests are open book except the Final Test which is closed book.
5.
  Please Sign In for each of the three parts of the course individually (Publick Ministry I., II., & III.)
and mark the form "Begin."  You do not submit a Finish Sign In form when you finish each lesson in each of those three parts, nor do you do so when you finish parts I. & II.  You only do so and mark the form "Finish" when you have completed the entire 3 part course, that is Publick Ministry I.-III., and you are ready for the Final Test which will cover all three parts of the course.
6. Download and print the COURSE RECORD FORM.  On it you will keep a record of your sign in "Begin" date because you will be required to enter it on the Sign In "Finish" form that you will submit at the end of the entire course.  You will also keep other pertinent information on that form such as date and score for each test so that you will be able to keep track of your progress through the course.

 

  • TESTING: The links to the tests are incorporated into the textbooks.
    -  Make sure you read and submit the testing instructions form if you have not already done so.
    -  You may not take more than one test in one day in any one subject.  If two lessons and tests are allowed in one week, as several are in this course, then you cannot take the two tests on the same day.  They must be spaced at least one day apart. One test must be passed and the correct answers to all questions found in the textbook. Then the next test may be attempted on or following the next day.
    -  Each of the three sections of this course, PUBLICK MINISTRY I., II., and III., have lesson tests incorporated into them covering just the material found in each of them individually.  There are no Final Tests for each of these three individual sections.

  • There will be a Final Test covering all three of the sections jointly.

  • ATTENTION:  If you fail a test, you MAY NOT attempt that test again on the same day.  You must restudy the textbook/workbook and find all of the correct answers to the questions missed and then retake the test no sooner than the next day. If this requirement is not met then the test will be disallowed and you will have to retake the test again when you have met this requirement.

  • STREET PREACHING REQUIREMENT & EXEMPTION:  If you reside in a country where street preaching is illegal, please submit an Exemption form requesting an exemption from the street preaching requirement and you will be granted an exemption.  In the field on the form marked "* Waiver for" you will select "Exemption from actual Street Preaching."  If you are granted an exemption and a test question asks if you have fulfilled this requirement, please answer "Yes" on the basis of your exemption.  If you are not granted an exemption, then you must fulfill the street preaching requirement in order to pass this course.  Click HERE to access the Waiver Form.

  • FINAL TEST:
    - The Final Test will be closed book.
    - The link to the final test will be found at the end of "The Ministry" textbook which is the final book of this 3 book, 3 part, series of courses.  You must turn in a Closed Book Test Contract form at that time in order to receive the Password for the Final Test.
