Spiritual Depression...for free

That is, the course is free. This Fall the Founders Study Center is offering the course, "Spiritual Depression" with lectures by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones. You may audit it at no cost. All of our courses are made available at minimal costs (which do not nearly cover the expenses of providing them), but by God's grace we are able to offer this one to auditors for free.

If you have never read Lloyd-Jones' book that is based on the messages he delivers for this course, I strongly encourage you to do so. It is not merely for people who battle depression. It is for anyone who wants to understand the Gospel and how the Gospel works in the daily life of a believer.

Founders Study Center Fall Schedule

The Founders Online Study Center continues to have a growing ministry of providing outstanding teaching to pastors and church leaders around the world. Using the internet, textbooks, study guides and mentors, the Study Center offers another stellar lineup of classes for the Fall semester. Dr. Ken Puls, who directs the center, has provided a wonderful service to churches of our day.

Baptist Identity
Taught by one of the foremost Baptist historians of our day, Tom Nettles. Dr. Nettles has written more extensively on Baptist identity than any other scholar of our day. His lectures on this subject are outstanding.
Introduction to the Puritans
J.I. Packer and Mark Dever represent two generations of Gospel ministers who have studied, benefited from and taught the biblical insights of the Puritans. Both men are experts in this field.
Bruce Leafblad is a former professor at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. His insights on God-centered worship are greatly needed in our day. Balanced, theological and practical, these lectures address one of the most contentious issues facing churches today.
Systematic Theology I
Roger Nicole is a founding member of the Evangelical Theological Society. Among evangelical theologians he has long been esteemed as a great systematic theologian. His lectures are profound, comprehensive and imminently biblical.
Registration is now open. Check out the Study Center and if you like what you see, help us recommend it pastors, church leaders and those aspiring to pastoral ministry.

One of the most beneficial dimensions of this ministry is the mentor relationships that it facilitates. No student is left on his own to pursue the course work. Countless testimonies have come to us about the ways God has used the mentoring relationships to strengthen both the one who mentored and the one who was mentored. If you are a pastor with at least 10 years of pastoral experience, consider becoming a mentor for students in the study center. More information is available via the link.
