Discover what you're called to do, by learning who you were made to be...


Learn to live a naturally supernatural lifestyle through the full Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry First Year course. 

The course is intended to teach you your identity as a son or daughter of God, how to go deep with Jesus, to carry God's presence, operate in the supernatural, and move in your gifts and passions to fulfil what you were made to do. You'll also gain ministry experience and learn practical skills to fulfil your call - all as we minister to the people of Melbourne. When you graduate, you'll also have established a network of people to partner with you in your next step.

[Our instructors] 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.

- Maie, Ministry Training 2016

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.

- Phil, Mission Training 2015

More About the Course

The First Year course is comprised of lectures, practical tutorials, experiences, mentoring, and outreach that culminates in a missions trip. The course can be studied as a full-time course during weekdays, part-time during evenings and some weekends, or fully online.

In First Year you'll discover and unlock what is already true in you. You were made glorious from your first moment, many of us were just never told! As Jesus restored everything to you on the cross we know the battle is now for the mind to activate what we already have. First Year will demonstrate who you are and what is already yours, and give you experience in taking hold of your inheritance and putting it into use.

The course will bring a greater intimacy with God, activate and grow faith, practically demonstrate supernatural ministry, as well as give you natural skills like administration for ministry, emotional IQ, diligence and leadership. You'll also understand how intimacy with God applies in society today as we influence our modern community. So whether you’re an apostle or doctor, the School of Faith will help will get you there.

Please note: This is not intended to be your last year of study in life, this will be your first year of walking intimately with God into your call for the rest of your life.

The course is full-time, running 5 days a week from 10am – 3pm, which equates to 22.5 contact hours per week. The course can also be studied part-time, on evenings and weekends, and fully online study is also available. We think you’ll also get as much from the atmosphere and life with other students as you do from in-class teaching, as what you do outside of class teaches you just as much as class time. We employ a 'teach, discover, practice' philosophy, which means there are multiple ways you'll develop, and as you seek, the chief instructor on campus, the Holy Spirit, will reveal more to you. 

Alongside face-to-face in-class teaching and learning, there will be weekly ministry opportunities, and each year level will have the chance to participate in a mission. Students may choose to go on a local trip or an overseas trip to practice all that they have learned.

Our booklist covers histories of the lives of those who have moved in great signs and wonders in the past, strong teaching from the present, and foundational works that we consider are a spiritual inheritance written down by those who have come before us. 

Your tutors are a combination of those who hold five-fold ministry offices, Bethel alumni, guest speakers and BSSM staff via prepared video. Your tutors are all presently ministering in areas they are instructing, with experience in practical supernatural living.
