We're nearing the home stretch of SOCPM's current term. Except for Dixon's Malachi Dads, the other five classes are in the midst of 'Bonus Programming' (BP). There is no issuing of certificates related to the BP but offers students additional equipping in sharing the Gospel.

Debates on creation versus evolution are common amongst believers and non-believers in prison. In an effort to better equip SOCPM students SOCPM's Discipleship classes viewed 'Evolution's Achilles' Heels' a DVD produced by Creation Ministries International. Utilizing stunning animations, fifteen scientist show how theory's of evolution, are in fact fatal flaws.

Malachi Dads is a good all around course on the role of men in Christian fatherhood and marriage but Voddie Bauchman's four-part series 'Love and Marriage' personalizes the delivery in a manner that SOCPM's students can relate to, thus listen with more intentionality.

SOCPM is looking to make BP a regular part of a term's 14-week sessions. Please pray that God will guide me to the fruit-bearing material the students need in addition to God's Word for equipping to share and defend the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

To Him be the glory!
