Spiritual Gifts- USP200

Dr. Angela · October 1, 2023

This course is designed to walk students through the understanding of spiritual gifts as actually written in scripture. Most teachings lump what scripture distinguishes into one classification. In this course students will examine manifestations of the Spirit vs. gifts of the Spirit, as well as, their interaction with the ecclesia’s officers.

Where to Begin 

  • To begin your course successfully it is highly recommended that before you start any of your assignments that you take time to review your course syllabus in its entirety. Your course syllabus is essential to passing your course effectively. As you review make note of your course objectives and student outcomes. These will tell you what your professor is looking for and hoping to see reflected in your assignments. The statements used in these sections should appear in your answers and how you assimilate the material. Lastly, review your grading criteria and measurements so you know what you professor is using to determine your final grades. This way you won’t have to guess why you received a certain score. If you have questions about your course syllabus you should contact your professor at the beginning of the course and not at the end when your scores are final.

Course Success Tips

  • Before jumping in to complete your first assignment, take time to review your entire course schedule. This is where you see all of the assignments that will be due throughout the course. This will help you to prepare your time and your schedule to complete what you need to pass with flying colors. Set days in the week to accomplish your assignments. Try not to wait to the last minute and most of all do not skip assignments in hopes you will finish later. The pace of this course requires that you are organized, focused, and committed to a working routine. Lastly, use your weekends wisely. While in school it is expected you will need to make sacrifices. Weekends are definitely one of them. Take time to not only study to complete your test but catch up lectures and future reading assignments. This will help you stay ahead or caught up without feeling so stressed or rushed. The weekly flies by so be sure you build time in for your studies and your focused attention.
