1. How long do your courses take to complete?
The courses at Setting Captives Free are 30 to 60 days in length. The specific number of days for each course is listed on the “About this Course” page. The lessons of all the courses are designed to be completed one lesson per day. Ideally, you should complete one lesson, meditate on the truths taught, and then return the following day for the next lesson. However, there is no obligation to complete a lesson every day.
2. How do the lessons work?
Each lesson is broken down into steps. You will begin at step one, complete it and then click the button to continue on to the next step. When you submit a step, your answers are saved into your account so if you have to leave and return, you will be able to pick up where you left off on your last visit. You will be able to review your lesson responses in your account at any time.
3. Do I only have 30 days or 60 days to complete my course work?
No, you may work through the course material at the pace that is comfortable to you.
4. Can I do more than one lesson each day?
No, we ask that you complete only one lesson per day. It is important that you take the time to meditate on the content of each lesson and that you consider the feedback from your mentor if you have one. Rushing through the course material will not allow your heart and mind the time it needs to benefit fully.
5. What is a mentor at Setting Captives Free?
All mentors with Setting Captives Free have been through the course that you will be taking, have experienced freedom through the gospel, and are now volunteering their time to help you if you need/want it. Your mentor will receive your lesson submissions, review your answers, and respond to you with feedback. You will receive an email to alert you when you have feedback available, usually within 24 hours.
6. May I have a mentor from my church?
Yes, you will have the opportunity to enter the email address of anyone you would like to serve as your mentor or accountability partner.
7. May I have both an online mentor and a local mentor?
8. Is your site secure?
9. How do I add an accountability partner to my account?
To add an accountability partner’s email address, go to your course homepage and click on the three vertical dots next to the blue button labeled “Go to Current Step.” Select the option labeled “Settings” and a new window will open, allowing you to input the accountability partner's email address. You will need to click the update button before closing the window to save your changes.
10. How does the accountability partner feature work?
If a student is not assigned to a Setting Captives Free mentor then the accountability partner is able to not only "add comments" to the student's lesson but also leave "final feedback". In fact, the accountability partner must submit the final feedback in order for the student to be alerted to the fact that the accountability partner has left comments for them to read.
