If you're interested in applying for the Emmanuel Guided Reading Course, get in touch with the Course Director Steve Jeffery.
The Elders at Emmanuel Evangelical Church are committed to supporting the work of the churches attended by students on the Guided Reading Course. Consequently, prospective students will be asked to speak with their church leaders during the application process, and church leaders are welcome to contact the Course Director at any time to discuss matters related to the course.
The application process will involve an interview with the Course Director, which will include discussion of the following issues:
- Your involvement in your local church.
- Your habits of private prayer and Bible-reading.
- What books you have been most influenced by in recent years.
- How you will find the time to do the necessary reading and study involved in the course (roughly 4 hours per week of reading, plus tutorials).
You will also need to provide the names and contact details of two people who are willing to act as referees. One should be a Minister, Pastor or Elder at your church; the other should be a Christian friend (not a relative) who knows you well.
The course fees are £10 per tutorial (£300 per year), and must be paid in advance, three times a year. We don’t want financial considerations to prevent qualified students from participating. If you think the fees will present a problem, please speak to Steve Jeffery about other funding options.
