The Baptist Seminary of Kentucky’s Flourish Center is offering two non-credit courses this fall, Youth Ministry 1 and Introduction to the Bible
Youth Ministry 1
Youth Ministry 1 will meet weekly on Tuesdays for six weeks beginning Oct. 13 and will cover the following topics:
- Introduction to youth ministry and discipleship
- Developmental theory and youth ministry
- Introduction to programming
- Planning and administration

Youth ministry can make a significant difference for teens and their families. This course is for paid and volunteer youth leaders and is designed to benefit those who want to start a new youth ministry or strengthen an existing one.
Prepared by experienced youth ministers Sarah Clarke Turpin, Justin Sizemore, and Andrew Noe, the series includes video content as well as weekly live Zoom sessions.
Introduction to the Bible
Introduction to the Bible will meet weekly on Mondays, beginning Oct. 19.
This course will be of interest to Bible study leaders and others who want to deepen their skill with the Scriptures. The series will offer an introduction to the Bible’s content, its origins, and its basic structure and message. The role of the Bible in the life of faith will also be covered.
Each session includes a pre-recorded video and a live Zoom session for discussion and questions.
The series is led by Dalen Jackson, academic dean and professor of biblical studies at BSK, and Roger Jasper, pastor of Living Faith Baptist Fellowship in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Jackson will present the pre-session video lectures, and Jasper will facilitate the live Zoom discussion sessions.
