Adult Education Specialist
James R. Kautz teaches Adult Bible Education classes, which are three to six sessions in length. The classes are on themes of individual books, in-depth studies of specific sections of a book, comparisons between books, and the Church year calendar in relation to the Scriptures. The Bible is viewed as the “cradle in which Christ is found” and God’s creative word, which sustains our existence in hope and love.
