The Bible Study
The Chicago Master's Commission wants to ensure character development for each student by placing an emphasis on academics. One way we accomplish this is by implementing and challenging our first year students to read the entire Old Testament and challenging our second year students to read the New Testament. The Bible Study assists in helping the students gain a deeper understanding of the Word of God and the particular book they are reading each week that they can in return apply to their lives to become a better individual and follower of Christ. The Bible says in 2 Timothy 3:16-17 “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work”. The Bible Study workbook consists of answering different questions pertaining to the book of the Bible they are reading that week. Some example questions include: Who wrote the passage? What time period was it written in? Where did the passage take place? All questions must be answered in complete sentences, and the students must use proper grammar. The Bible Study workbook consists of critical thinking questions that challenge the student’s understanding of the Bible and how they are going to apply the book of the Bible they studied to their lives.
Life Lessons, Leadership, and Enrichment
At the Chicago Master's Commission, we also offer a variety of classes that are taught by in-house pastors and CMC staff members. The first years in the program attend weekly Life Lessons classes. These classes teach very practical and spiritual lessons that we find essential for the development of young people so that they can live lives of excellence. Our second and third years attend Leadership classes that are specifically geared toward teaching them the practical and spiritual aspects of being a successful leader. Every student also gets to attend our Enrichment classes. These classes, taught by pastors and leaders of New Life Covenant Church, are classes that are formed out of specific topics that today’s young people are faced with and how the Bible instructs us to deal with them. The combination of the Life Lessons, Leadership, and Enrichment classes gives each student teachings that prepare them to be successful practically and spiritually as they develop.
