The Presidents’ class was formed in 1986 by Dr. W. A. Criswell to attract and provide in-depth Bible study for business and professional leaders. It has evolved into a loving, caring class of approximately 150 members that welcomes men and women of all ages and walks of life. Dr. Paige Patterson currently serves as the teacher and is providing verse-by-verse lesson instruction through selected books of the Bible. These lessons are highlighted by visual on-screen slides presented through the state-of-the-art technology offered in Center Stage. A question and answer period follows each lesson.

This member-led class believes that all mature Christians grow and benefit from fellowship and service and is structured to provide those opportunities. The class has an active prayer ministry and enjoys fellowship time at regularly scheduled events throughout the year with the Christmas dinner being the annual highlight.

The class meets in CenterStage at 11am every Sunday and is also available on Zoom.
