Topics include: Pneumatology, Anthropology, Angelology, Eschatology, and the Eternal State. (The remaining topics – Theology Proper, the Trinity, Bibliology, Christology, Soteriology, Sanctification, and Ecclesiology – are taught in other Veritas Courses.)
116 CRAFTING MESSAGES & SERMONS
This course focuses on the art and science of crafting messages and sermons that are scripturally sound, theologically rich, personally authentic, and genuinely transformative for our listeners. We will demystify the process of crafting a logical and coherent sermon or talk. And we will study the process of moving from the scriptural text to the structure of our talks, examine some of the great preachers of history, and highlight the importance of expository preaching. [Note please there is no public speaking assigned in this class. There is a companion course, 216 Delivering Messages and Sermons, in Series Two]
118 SERVICE PROJECT

Each course includes: a syllabus, classroom videos, downloadable lecture notes, progress tracking, direct chat with your professor, our Social Wall to build community, and more. Homework is optional.
 
No grades. No pressure. Work at your own pace. Listen while you drive, walk, cook, or work out. Build your own theological & ministry library for a lifetime of service for Christ and the Gospel!
"For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ." (2 Corinthians 10:4-5)

The Veritas Story
I'm Bill Giovannetti. I grew up in Awana clubs an international Bible-based program for kids, and was mentored by some of the founders of Awana itself. Since childhood, I've had a love for Scripture, and the deep things of God.

I remember sitting in seminary classes, under professors like Dr. Paul Feinberg, Dr. Wayne Grudem, S. Lewis Johnson, Scott McKnight, and Dr. Stuart Hackett. I heard lectures on theology and Scripture, and thought, "I am the richest guy in the world."

I knew there were people around the world who would give their right arm to do what I was doing in those classes. 

Right there, a dream was born. 

I've had a passion to bring the deep things of God's Word to the everyday people of God. The wonders of his grace. The depths of his character and attributes. The glory of the Cross. The richness of our salvation in him. The incomparable wisdom of his Word.

I thought, Why should the wonders of God's love be reserved for crusty scholars and people who had time to put life on pause while they attended seminary?

Why should the Knowledge of the Holy be the exclusive domain of professional clergy and scholars?

God gave all his truth to all his people.

It's time to bring the church back to the Bible, and the Bible back to the church.

I've been teaching courses in theology and ministry at Christian colleges and seminaries for over 25 years. I've been pastoring large churches for longer than that. 

Along the way, I've never stopped learning and growing. 

Veritas School of Biblical Ministry is the overflow of a lifetime of discovering God's love for me through his Word. 

I'd like to invite you to poke around, and see if we've got something you might want. 

Seminary for all! That's the big idea. A Tribe of Everyday Scholars. 

You are invited. Thanks for being here. 

In His Matchless Grace,
Bill
