What is The YES Course?

The YES Course is designed to help you

  • Identify
  • Define and
  • Test

your personal belief system—even if you think you don’t have one!

The Course uses biblical Christianity as a “baseline” against which you can compare your current personal belief system. Whether your current personal belief system is Agnosticism, Animism, Atheism, Baha’ism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Mormonism, Neo-Paganism, New Agism, Rastafarianism, Scientology, Secular Materialism, Seventh Day Adventism, Sikhism, Spiritism, Taoism, Unitarian-Universalism, Zoroastrianism, or any other belief system, The YES Course enables you to identify, define, and test your personal belief system.

About The YES Course Developer

Roger A Severson developed The YES Course in part by using skills acquired during more than thirty years of experience in organizational communication both domestically and internationally, primarily in manpower training and curriculum development programs for medical, petroleum, and governmental agencies, and by researching his own personal belief system and learning why he believes as he does.

His work and travels among the people of Austria, Bahrain, Canada, Cyprus, Egypt, Estonia, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Madagascar, the Maladives, Mexico, Nepal, Pakistan, Poland, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Tanzania, Thailand, and Uzbekistan have greatly expanded his worldview.

He holds a BA from St. Olaf College and an MS from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, but considers his life and belief system to be empirical enterprises. He sometimes says of himself that he may be over the hill, but he is still climbing.
