Transfer In Associate’s Degree

The mission of the Christian Ministry Major is to equip students who desire to conduct bi-vocational ministries for effective Christian leadership in the church and the world. St. Louis Christian College offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Christian Ministry to transfers who have completed an Associates Degree from another institution of higher education that contains 27 hours of courses in a specified general education core, 15 hours of general education electives, and 24 hours of other courses.  Any outstanding hours from that 66 would still need to be completed either at SLCC or at another college.

Logos Bible Software

PMN 120 Introduction to Logos Bible Software

This course provides a hands-on approach in teaching skills necessary to utilize Logos Bible Software. This is a key prerequisite to all Bible courses. Beginning Fall 2018, all incoming day students (full-time and part-time) will be required to take the course. The College provides the Logos software to the students.

All of these students will automatically be enrolled in the 1 credit hour course described above. For Fall 2019, this course will be held for five weeks on Tuesday evenings from 6:00-8:30 p.m. The course runs from August 20 to September 17.

Benefits Include

  • All Bible courses will include integration of Logos, which will enhance student learning.
  • All graduates of SLCC will get to take the Logos Bible software with them, which will enhance lifelong learning.
  • The Logos package our students receive contains over 300 resources.
  • Logos is 100% web based, so students can access Logos from any computer. All features, however, are not accessible unless downloaded to a computer.

Some Things to Think About

  • Only SLCC graduates are allowed to take their Logos license with them. Thus, until graduation, students should think of this arrangement as a “rental” because all students who leave SLCC before graduation will forfeit the license given to them.
  • Being able to take a laptop to Bible courses will be very beneficial for students.
