Classes & Training

New Policy: Please do not be late for these classes.  If you arrive late, you may be asked to take the next class or receive half of the baby bucks earned at the staff's discretion.

We believe that the Bible is the authoritative Word of God and provides guidance for our lives.  We believe in chastity outside of marriage and fidelity within.  We believe in the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman as taught in the Bible.  We teach our classes according to these beliefs.  You may or may not agree with our viewpoint, but we want you to be aware that we hold those values and teach according to them.
