This class is for officer candidates (though open to all men in the church) and is offered bi-annually. It consists of a 13-week inductive study of the Westminster Confession of Faith designed by Terry Johnson, the senior minister at Independent Presbyterian Church in Savannah. Nearly 200 men have completed this class in thirty-plus years. Today these men form the backbone of the church. As far as humanly can be discerned, because these men have been grounded in the Westminster Standards, they ensure that the Independent Presbyterian Church will continue faithfully to preach the Reformed faith and practice historic Reformed ministry and worship into the distant future.
