Praise School of Ministry IN-PERSON & ONLINE

PCF-LA operates ​Praise School of Ministry (PSOM), a church-based institute focused on theological, biblical, & missional study in the Christian faith, certified by our mother denomination (the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel), for the purpose of equipping ALL believers in our pursuit of ever-enhancing discipleship as witnesses and workers for our shared commission in the Lord Jesus Christ. ALL believers are to be ministers in our own respective spheres of influence--PSOM exists to further equip us biblically & spiritually for this charge. Credit students who complete a full scope of PSOM courses also receive a diploma and are eligible to pursue ministerial credentialling with The Foursquare Church if they are called to such by the Lord and have demonstrated that calling through appropriate training, diligence, and dedication.

  • ISAIAH: Prophet of Suffering & Salvation with Pastor Courtney Hall: Sundays 2:30-4:30pm (PT)​

Each session we're studying a major section of the Old Testament book of Isaiah, first of the three "Major Prophets" of the Hebrew Bible. The course provides an overview both of Isaiah's text as well as his context in terms of the prophet's biography, setting in time, cultural milieu, use of linguistic & literary forms, and especially the theological themes of his inspired writings. Particular attention will be paid to the distinctives of Isaiah's ministry, personality, & text, as well as his unity with and distinction among the other writing prophets of the Old Testament and in the biblical prophetic tradition as a whole. We will also examine Isaiah's contribution to & interaction with the larger cohesive story of the Scriptures in general, and particularly the impact of Isaiah upon our understanding of the New Testament Messianic fulfillments realized in Christ Jesus. The weekly focus for each class session will be as follows:

  1. Introduction: Overview; The Prophet's Vision & Call (Isaiah Chap. 6)

  2. Part Two: Proto-Isaiah - Warnings & Judgments (Isaiah Chaps. 1-39)

  3. Part Three: Deutero-Isaiah - Exile & Expectation (Isaiah Chaps. 40-55)

  4. Part Four: Trito-Isaiah - Redemption & Restoration (Isaiah Chaps. 56-66)

  5. Part Five: Songs of the Suffering Servant (Isaiah Chaps. 42, 49, 50, 52, 61)

  6. Conclusion: Summary & Synthesis - Understanding the Impact of Isaiah
