Wherever there is a church, there is a classroom. Where there is internet access, there is a teacher.

The Carroll Teaching Network delivers accredited theological education to Christ-centered leaders in their contexts through several delivery methods (a traditional classroom setting, online with Carroll Live, or a self-paced environment).

Here you may register for available Reader courses.

We work with a network of over 1,000 local churches. Each has access to these same courses often at reduced prices. Please contact your Church Leadership about their Carroll Teaching Network portal, or starting one.

Pain and Suffering

Dr. George Layne Wallace

Tuesdays 11:30am-2:00pm CDT
6:30pm-9:00pm CEST

October 5-November 23, 2021

A popular piano player sang it in a song: “Only the good die young.” Why is that? Why do the good seem to go through life with pain and suffering while the wicked prosper? Why does a child contract a deadly form of cancer? Why does COVID rob the world of millions and wreck mental health? Why does the church in the Middle East endure persecution? How could a good God allow such pain and suffering? Find the answers this fall in the course Pain and Suffering, which addresses the biblical, theological, and philosophical issues of theodicy.

Christian Heritage I

Dr. Karen Bullock

Wednesdays 6:30pm-8:00pm CDT

October 6-November 24, 2021

Persecution and heresy. Fistfights and intrigue. Courageous missionaries and studious monks. Constantine’s miraculous conversion and an apostate emperor. The struggle of the Dark Ages. It all reads like it was written in Hollywood, but it isn’t a movie script. It was real life. From the struggles of the early church and church councils to the union of church and state and the early Middle Ages, Christian Heritage I covers the first 800-900 years of the church. You’ll explore events, themes, ecclesiastical and doctrinal developments, and uncover the fascinating stories of the rapidly expanding church.
