SOUL WINNING PRACTICUM I. & II.



    A practical class to teach you the basics of how to go about leading a soul to Christ.  This class is a Bible-based, step by step guide to teach you the method, give you the practice, and encourage you in the performing of the duty that Christ gives to you personally.  And that duty is soul-by-soul evangelism.

    There are two sections to this course.  The first section, Soul Winning Practicum I., is required for all students.  The second section, Soul Winning Practicum II., is not required; but it is suggested that all students take it at least once.


SOUL WINNING PRACTICUM I.

This course is required for all students.

Please SIGN IN for this course if you have not already done so on a previous page.

Please download and print a Course Record Form for this course.  On it you will keep information about your progress in this course.  You will need some of that information for later forms and it will also help keep you informed about your progress in this course.

In this class we will pursue the goal of learning a biblical method of leading someone to Christ. 

The Textbook is divided into eight sections. Not more than one section may be completed each week.  At the end of each section you will stop and take the Section Test that corresponds with the section you just finished studying. Some of the section tests are “open book,” which means you may use your textbook while taking the tests, and some of them are "closed book" which means you must do them strictly from memory.  For "closed book" tests you cannot use your textbook nor any other type of material to help you while taking the test.  Nor can you have someone coach you in any way during the test.
   You must submit a Closed Book Test Contract Form before taking each "closed book" test.  You will then be sent the password for the test.

Attendance:
Course attendance:  Minimum attendance for this entire course is 8 weeks.
Lesson attendance:  Minimum attendance for each lesson in this course is 1 week.

Credits:  Course is worth 1 credit.

Testing:  Make sure you read and submit the Testing Instructions form if you have not already done so.
- Name entry on tests:  Students are required to use proper letter-case when inputting their names on all submissions to the college.  Example: If your name is John Smith, then input John Smith, not john smith or JOHN SMITH.  If you do not use proper letter-case when you input your name on a test, then the test will be Disallowed and discarded.
- You MAY NOT take any test more than once on any one day but must wait until on or after the next day to repeat the test should you not receive a passing score.  That day is to be used to find all of the correct answers in your textbook or KJV Bible, whichever is appropriate for the question, for every question missed on the test.  You must do this before attempting the test again on the next day.
- The test question answers must be exactly the wording of the textbook or your KJV Bible, whichever is appropriate for the question.

Final Test:  This test is closed book!
Once you have completed all sections of the textbook and passed all of the corresponding tests, and found the correct answers to any questions missed on any test, then you may submit a "Finish" sign in form, submit a Closed Book Test Contract Form to retrieve the password and, upon receiving the password, take the Final Test for the course.
-  Final Test is "closed book" and you must submit the Closed Book Test Contract Form to receive the password before taking the test.
-  There is a 30 minute time limit on the test.  You will see a time remaining clock in the upper right hand corner of the test screen.  Time does not start until your first question comes on the screen.
-  If you fail the test, then restudy the textbook/workbook and find the correct answers to all questions for which you gave a wrong answer.  You must repeat the Final Test as many times as necessary for you to receive a passing grade; but you may not take this or any other test in this course more than once on any one day.  One day minimum is to be taken between all takes and retakes and the time is to be spent finding the correct answers in your study materials.

You may now go to the Soul Winning Practicum class.

SOUL WINNING PRACTICUM II.

This course is not required but it is suggested that all students take it at least once.

  • In this course you will teach someone else the Soul Winning Practicum I. course.

  • You may take this course up to 4 times.

  • Please submit Begin and Finish Sign In forms each time you teach this course to someone in its entirety.  Do not submit the Begin Sign In forms until after the pastors involved have submitted their Pastor Ministry Confirmation forms according to the instructions below.

  • Please download and print a Course Record Form for this course each time that you take.  On it you will keep information about your progress in this course.  You will need some of that information for later forms and it will also help keep you informed about your progress in this course.

  • In this class we will pursue the goal of you teaching someone the biblical method of leading someone to Christ that you learned in section one of this class.

  • Pastor's permission form: Before you teach this course to someone you must have the permission of your pastor and their pastor.  Show your pastor the material you are going to use to teach them, which is the Soul Winning Practicum textbook, and let him know you have already gone through the Soul Winning Practicum class and that you are familiar enough with it to know how to properly use it to teach someone else.  If he agrees you can disciple the person, then have him use the Pastor Ministry Confirmation form that he can submit online.  Under "Ministries" have him input: "Permission for student to teach the Soul Winning Practicum course to [name of person you are going to teach]."
    -  The person you are teaching probably will be a member of the Church where you are a member.
    -  If they are not a member of your church, then you will need your pastor's permission for you to teach them and you will need the permission of their pastor for them to be taught by you.  In that case, a Pastor Ministry Confirmation form is needed from your pastor for you stating he has given "Permission for student to teach the Soul Winning Practicum course to [name of person you are going to teach]" and one from their pastor stating that "[Name of person you are going to teach] has permission to take the Soul Winning Practicum course from [your name]."  This is assuming they are a member of some church.
    -  If they are not a member of any church, then you will only need your pastor's permission for you to teach the course to them. Make sure the pastor(s) submit your name as the name of the student and the name of the one you are going to teach in the "Ministries" box.
    -  Your pastor knows if you are mature enough to teach someone else.  The decision is up to them.  Do not be angry with them if they refuse to give you their permission.  If they say, "No," then realize they are doing it for your own good and for the good of the one to whom you want to teach the course.  Should your pastor say no, then ask him when he thinks you will be ready to teach this course to someone.  Maybe he can give you some material to help you mature to the point you need to properly and biblically teach someone else this course.  Discuss it with your pastor in a non-confrontational manner and remember that God says they must give an answer for your soul.  In other words your pastor is responsible to God for your growth toward maturity; and if they don't believe you are ready to take on the job and responsibility of teaching someone, then gracefully bow to their leadership and authority.  In no way be rebellious or resentful concerning their decision.  Simply appreciate their love and care for you and respect their authority in this matter.

  • If your pastor, and the pastor of the person you wish to teach should they be a member of another church, agree, then you may submit your Begin Sign In form for this course on the day that the Pastor Ministry Confirmation forms are submitted by them.  Find out the date they submitted the forms so that you will know when you can submit your Begin Sign In form and start your attendance.

  • Instructions for study:
       The person you teach will need to take the course that you took, following the same instructions that you followed.  However, rather than taking the course online they will take it with you as the teacher.  They will go online to take their tests but you will keep track of their scores in a notebook and report to me when they have finished the course.  They must meet the same minimum attendance per lesson and minimum attendance for the course requirements that you had to meet in the Soul Winning Practicum I. course.
