The human spirit was made to be fathered and raised up. We already have many great teachers. Now we need spiritual fathers and mothers, or 'mentors' to raise us to walk in what we have learned, and empower us to be who God has made us to be.
A Raising Up
God often calls us, and then there is a period of character building and developing skill before we enter into our calling. Just like for David, when Samuel anointed him to be King over Israel, there were years of preparation between God calling David to be King and David taking up his post. David learned how to lead, how to be humble, and how to know God's heart before he needed these skills, and they laid a foundation for him to be a strong King. School will help you develop, as well as guide you through the preparation journey so you're not "wandering the wilderness for 40 years."
The journey is much like shaping metal, we are often put into the fire of adversity, then shaped and allowed to cool, before going back into the fire again. This process can’t be rushed or circumvented, but it can be guided, allowing the process to occur efficiently. The School aims to guide and teach lessons learned from previous generations to save you from reinventing the wheel on your way to your destiny, and avoid extra hammering...
Practice Before The Game
Just like in sport, the best players have practice behind them and know they can succeed before they step out onto the field. We often say "God doesn’t call the equipped, He equips the called". When we feel God's call, our next step is to practice and become equipped so we can step out onto the field knowing we’ll succeed. School is a place where you’ll have a safety net to practice what the Bible teaches, through ministry opportunities that allow you to move in the supernatural, development opportunities on campus, and practice in and out of class with other students.
[The teachers] inspire leaders into the impossible and set fire to complacency.
They inspired me to become more dangerous for Jesus and take on challenges that I otherwise would have felt ill-equipped for.

I began to walk with great faith and boldness into any AND every situation because I started to understand for myself what it meant to be a child of God.
- Kate, Mission Training 2014
It was new teaching on the supernatural I hadn't heard before which I have seen fruit from and has lead me into deeper intimacy with God. What I liked most though was that we practiced doing what we were learning in the training session.

Journey Of A Lifetime
We believe that studying at the School can be the start of your ‘journey of a lifetime’. Whether you are looking to spend a year exploring how you can best serve God and fulfill your calling, spend a year going deeper with God and discovering a greater measure of His indwelling, or spend a year creating strong relationships with other students to extend Kingdom influence, there is something here for you.
