“Preparation for underground work begins by studying sufferology, martyrology.”
—Richard Wurmbrand (1909-2001), Founder of VOM
The Voice of the Martyrs (VOM) and Oklahoma Wesleyan University (OKWU) partner together to offer mini-term courses within OKWU’s Global Studies program.
Each one-week mini-term offers an intensive, three-credit-hour, advanced college course that takes place on the campus of OKWU in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. The course also includes a service project with VOM at the ministry’s Bartlesville headquarters. The total cost of the program is $600, including academic credits, housing, books and meals on the campus of OKWU. Academic credit can be transferred to other academic institutions.
Here’s what previous mini-term students have said about their experience:
“Not only was I able to gain valuable information about Christian response to secular powers but I also had a great time meeting new people!”
—Cynthia C, Florida
“The faculty members facilitated a great learning environment. The God and Government class stretched my mind and challenged many of my preconceived ideas concerning God and secular Government. The instructor guided the class through scripture and academics as he enabled us to form more than just opinions on matters at hand. The university that I attend accepted the transfer of OKWU's credits without any hesitation. I would recommend the class to anyone able to take it.”
—Aaron L, Louisiana
“The mini term was an intense course, yet with a heart-felt worship session drenched in biblical truth, countless hours spent in the word of God, essays after essays, debates, and unforgettable fellowships; it was a week very well spent with my brothers and sisters. The historical and theological studies of the topic “God and government” with Dr. Jarmola helped me find the answers to my questions as a Christian service member, and further brought me to my knees in worship to the Lord in His sovereignty.”
—Jeff K, New York
