A. Serious students are to contact Coleen at the WYOMING Network Office (307) 234-4102 to register or enroll for a class. Use our secured online payment source on the register tab. A Text Overview/Study guide is sent once payment is made for the course. **You can also email a registration form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
B. Students are to purchase the textbook, read it, and answer questions from the Text Overview. All answers must be typed and two copies made. Both copies must be brought to class--the student will keep one and the other will be submitted to the Network office upon completion of the class.
C. All classes are held at Radius Church, located at 4301 Casper Mountain Rd., Casper, WY 82601. Students are to sign in for class upon arrival—name, phone number, and email address are requested. Classes held at various locations in the building. All classes begin at 8:00 AM!
Class Time Schedule (Some flexibility allowed per instructor):
1) Session #1: 8:00 - 10:15 AM
2) Break: 10:15 AM - 11:00 AM
3) Session #2: 11:00 AM - 1 :30 PM
*We are experimenting with different schedule formats.
D. Students trade their Text Overview with another student and go over it in class with the instructor. The discussion will ensue as the material is taught question by question until completed. Group interaction is encouraged!
E. Students help compile the Text Overview score--for example, the student got 50/58 answers correct-86%. The corrected Text Overviews are given back to students for review before the final exam is taken. NOTE-the final exam comes exclusively from the Text Overview.
F. The instructor distributes the final exam. After completion, the student returns it to the instructor for grading. Once grades are finalized, the material is sent (both Text Overviews and Tests) to Coleen for recording. The WYSOM team will take all percentages and compile the grade on the following scale: class attendance-20%, Text Overview-40%, and Final Test-40%. An email is sent to students the following week with the earned grade.
G. All students are encouraged to register/pay for the next course of study before they leave if they have not already done so! Once received, Coleen will send Text Overviews to students so they can begin preparing for the next course. Students are responsible to purchase books online (amazon.com) or in a bookstore (See Materials tab).
H. Weather can be a challenge in Wyoming. In case of inclement weather, we can postpone the class. It is suggested to reschedule the following Saturday. Please contact the director the Friday before the class if you think the weather is questionable so a decision can be made and communicated. This is vitally important.
I. All courses in WYSOM are designed to enhance biblical knowledge and practical skill in ministry for those who sense the call of God or for those who desire spiritual enrichment and discipleship. I encourage all to pray and seek the Lord regarding this opportunity! We are to help individuals build a strong biblical foundation and lasting relationships—this is what makes WYSOM special!
J. There is also an internship component for WYSOM. All students are expected to serve in their churches under the mentorship of a leader in the church such as a pastor or elder. Contact the Network office or me if you have any questions in this regard. More information will be sent out upon request.
