Streaming Courses

Our streaming courses are a unique opportunity for churches outside of the Charleston area to access Ridley courses via a streaming video service that can be watched in a context of prayer, worship, and group interaction; this is a great resource for Christians who want to go deeper in their faith, at a small group or a larger church gathering. In addition to the video teaching, each course includes printable materials that go along with each lesson.

The Ridley Institute streaming library will offer a solid foundation in four vital areas of Christian education and equipping: Christian Confidence (the Bible), Christian Belief (Theology), Christian Formation (Prayer/Spiritual Growth), and Christian Living (Ethics). Each of these four tracks is anchored by a foundation course, followed by two additional courses. In the table below, you can see when we anticipate each course being available for streaming.

Live Courses

Every fall and spring semester, we offer a live course taught at St. Andrew’s Church in Mt. Pleasant, S.C. These courses are designed to help people grow in their love for God and apply their faith in everyday life. While outside reading will be recommended, there are no assignments. The level of teaching is deep enough for life-long disciples, but still accessible to those who are new to the faith. Courses include dinner, a 40-45 minute teaching, small-group discussion, and Q&A with the teacher. They typically run for 8 weeks on Tuesday evenings.

For those who live outside the Charleston area, most of the courses will be made available in a streaming format.

Our next live course is:

Hearing God Speak: An Introduction to the Bible

Cost: $95
Course Dates: February 19 - April 9, 2019

February 19 – April 9. Participants will learn to trust and engage the Bible as the primary way to know God and hear him speak. Classes are held at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Mt. Pleasant, S.C.
