Equipping Classes

Each semester The Austin Stone offers a wide spectrum of classes, each one intended to allow students to encounter God and truth through His Word, turn daily to Jesus as their only hope for joy and salvation, and seek the redemption and restoration of the world through the spread of the Gospel.

To register for a class, click on the section info for the class you're interested in. Online payment is required to hold your space in a class. If you don't complete the registration, your spot will not be reserved. Classes are closed to new registrants after their start date.

Our classes fill up fast and we want to hold spots for those who are able to commit.

Don't let course fees prevent you from registering. Email your campus staff to request a scholarship.

 

Class Commitments

Class Commitments:

Because our classes rely heavily on discussion and community, we ask participants to commit to the following before signing up. Space is limited, so please do not take a spot in a class if you cannot:

  • Attend the first class of the semester
  • Attend at least 80% of the class meetings. For most classes this will mean missing no more than one class.
  • Each class may have additional requirements to enable you to get the most out of the semester.

If you have any questions about these requirements, please email us: gettrained@austinstone.org
