The 2014 GPTS Winter Term began Jan. 6 and runs through Jan. 24, with 47 students registered for on-campus courses. Five courses are being offered during this term:
  • HT10 – Presbyterian Church History, Jan. 6-17, taught by Dr. C.N. Willborn. This course includes a two-day historical tour in Columbia and Charleston, S.C.
  • AT20 – Introduction to Homilectics, Jan. 7-10, taught by Dr. Joseph A. Pipa, Jr.
  • AT30 – Reformed Worship, Jan. 14-17, taught by Dr. Pipa.
  • OT32 – Old Testament Biblical Theology, Jan. 6-10, taught by Dr. Michael Morales.
  • AT40 – Reformed Pastor, Jan. 8-10 & 13-15, taught by Rev. William Shishko. 
"Reading week" and exams will take place Jan. 20-24.

We welcome many of our distance-learning students to campus during the winter term. The intensive schedule of classes provides these students an opportunity to satisfy part of the requirement for long-distance students to spend an equivalent of one year on campus.

Spring Semester classes begin on January 28. As of the date of this publication, 61 students were registered for the Spring Semester, with some additions possible before classes begin.

Students and other participants listen to Dr. Nick Willborn unfold
history at the old Columbia Seminary during the 2013 class tour.
