Description of how faith and learning will be integrated in the course
This course reflects the mission of the College of Arts & Sciences to graduate exceptional students
deeply committed to Christ’s calling to cherish character, challenge culture, and serve the world. The
mission of CAS is dependent on discovery, comprehension and application of the eternal truths
communicated in the Bible, the Word of God. By its very nature, the study of any Scripture integrates
faith and learning. In this course we explore the nature, content and message of the books of the Bible,
and students will be prepared to read, interpret, and apply these sacred scriptures

Course Procedures
Attendance Policy (College of Arts & Sciences)
Regent University recognizes the importance of class attendance and participation for students’
learning. While attendance alone does not guarantee learning, engagement with the class through
regular attendance and participation is essential to learning, both to the individual student and to the
class itself as all benefit by others’ contributions. At Regent University, class attendance, understood as
the act of being present, is considered to be separate from participating in the class, understood as
active engagement through discussion and other forms of interaction. Both are valuable to student
learning.
Like other institutions of higher education, Regent University is required to maintain accurate
attendance records by the U.S. Department of Education. Attendance is tracked weekly. For any week (7
days) in which a student does not attend class or, for online courses, participate in academic activities
for the course in Blackboard, the student will be marked absent in the Blackboard grade book. The
standard by which a final date of attendance in the class is measured will be the last date on which the
online student engages in academic activity for the course in Blackboard or the on-campus student
attends the on-campus class for a course, whichever is more recent. “Academic activity” includes
submitting an assignment, taking an exam or tutorial, engaging in computer-assisted instruction,
participating in online discussion about academic matters, or initiating contact with a faculty member to
discuss academic matters concerning the course. Students should be aware that this date could affect
their financial aid and financial obligations.
Normally, expectations for participation—such as those for quality work in the group discussions
(including those in Blackboard)–differ from the minimal requirements for attendance. Thus, at the
instructor’s discretion, a student who is present or absent might lose participation points. Instructors
determine whether students may gain back lost participation points (for example, through additional
work). Students should be aware that instructors follow their posted policy for receiving late work from
students. Work turned in late (papers, discussion board posts, etc.) could result in the loss of
participation points or other components of the final course grade. Instructors are responsible to
maintain accurate records regarding attendance and to follow course policies for grading student work,
including students’ participation. Students are responsible to attend and participate in class and to
follow campus policies.
Student Attendance Policy
Recognizing the importance of student participation in the educational process, students will be
required to attend 15 week on-campus classes while allowing for a limited number of excused absences.
These excused absences do not require documentation of justification for the absence. However, absent
students are responsible for contacting the instructor within 48 hours of the absence to arrange for the
possibility of making up missed work. Students should keep in mind that the excused absences should
be used with prudence as absences beyond the allowable number will result in grade deductions.
As the College of Arts and Sciences offers courses in a number of delivery configurations, the following
guidelines are provided:

require the student to appeal through the extension process if he/she exceeds the designated excused

Blackboard Requirements
Blackboard has four primary purposes in our courses: (1) to provide a means for students to receive
timely information about the course in general, assignments, grades, and announcements from the
instructor; (2) to promote thoughtful interaction between the instructor and students and among
students themselves as they work through course materials; (3) to provide a means for students to
complete quizzes and other forms of evaluation; and (4) to enhance the learning process by providing a
variety of materials.
Students are expected to log in to Blackboard and check the Announcements section of Blackboard at
least once a week beginning one week before the start of the course. Students must keep their e-mail
address current in Blackboard; they are expected to check their Regent e-mail daily to ensure timely
receipt of messages from the professor.
Note that the expectations for quality work in the Blackboard group discussions differ from the minimal
requirements for attendance.
*
Please note that some instructors may have a participation or other grade component which may be influenced
by attendance; therefore, excused absences, while allowable, may affect a student’s grade.

Please check the Start Here link in Blackboard for University Library information and Academic Support
information, Blackboard Tutorials and Resources, Academic Honor Code, Writing Styles, Discipline
Policies, and Disability Services.
Some basic computer skills you are expected to have mastered before taking an online course include
the following: sending and receiving emails, opening or sending an email attachment, searching the
Internet, using Microsoft Word and downloading files. Numerous online tutorials are available to teach
you how to use Blackboard. When you log into Blackboard, access the RU Resources tab at the top right
of your screen.
If you have technical problems with Blackboard and/or are not able to log in, please contact the Help
Desk/IT department. You can e-mail the Help Desk at: helpdesk@regent.edu or call at (757) 352-4076.
Late Assignment Penalties
Timely participation in class activities is critical for the benefit of both you and your fellow students.
Therefore, all assignments must be submitted in a timely fashion. The penalty for lateness on other
assignments is one letter grade per day.
Class Participation
Active preparation and meaningful participation is a key component of this course.
Required Work Hours
As per Regent University’s Credit Hour policy, 45 hours of total student work are minimally required for
each credit hour earned in a course; therefore, you should calculate the average number of work hours
per week required by this course (e.g., a 3-credit course lasting 15 weeks requires at least 9 hours per
week of student work) in order to give you an approximate understanding of the amount of time you
should devote to its requirements. For online, 8 week classes, the student work effort per week is in
effect doubled to about 17 hours per week (vs. 9 hours per week for 15-week courses).
Writing
All papers and essays at Regent University must follow the writing style format required by the degree
specialty for which they are being written. The writing style to be used in this course is Turabian.
SafeAssign™
In order to support students and faculty in reducing plagiarism, the College of Arts & Sciences utilizes
SafeAssign™, a plagiarism prevention service offered through Blackboard. SafeAssign™ detects
unoriginal content in student assignments and provides an easily identifiable report for faculty to
distinguish between original and plagiarized content. This service helps educators prevent plagiarism by
detecting unoriginal content in student papers.
College of Arts & Sciences Academic Policies
For additional academic policies, please review the latest college catalog here.
Required and Supplemental Resources
Students are responsible for acquiring the following books and materials for this course by the time the
course begins:
?

Reading:
The reading assignments in this course should be completed carefully with meaningful note-taking.
Doing so will make the quizzes and writing assignments much easier to finish successfully.
Discussion Boards:
In this course there will be weekly online discussions (except for week 8). For each Discussion Board
there must be one original thread which addresses the questions and/or topic posted in Blackboard.
(See the Dialogue section located under the respective week in the Course Content section.) Original
threads are due by Thursday at midnight, and must be at least 500 words in length. The purpose of
these parameters is to promote writing that is both thorough and concise. Since not everyone will see
things identically, students are to review one another’s postings in order to further their insight and
learning. At that point, each student is required to respond to at least two posts of other students.
These reply posts are due Sunday by midnight and must be at least 250 words in length.
Quizzes:
There will be weekly quizzes over that week’s reading in The Mission of God’s People. The quizzes are
open book and notes, but are timed. Some questions are basic, while others are more involved, so take
careful notes.
Term Paper:
Discuss the following: (1) what you consider to be a theology of the Church, (2) its implication for a
biblical perspective on Christian ministry, and (3) a personal strategy for implementing these truths in
your life. As regards content, a well-written paper will include all of the following:
1. Theology of the Church (based on the course texts): (1,000 words minimum))
a. A discussion of biblical texts, in their contexts, and how they inform your
understanding of a biblical theology of the Church.
2. Implications for Christian Ministry: (1,000 words minimum)
a. A discussion of your conclusions in Part 1 and how they apply to Christian
ministry in today’s world.
b. A comparison/contrast between ministry characterized by loving and humble
service (based on Cruciformity) on the one hand, and, on the other hand,
ministry characterized by “self-actualization,” i.e., “being all that you can be.”
3. Personal Strategy: (500 words minimum)
