The School of Faith attempts to make First Year available to all who wish to study. So if study is your heart’s desire, or excites your spirit, or you feel God’s pull towards study, or you have peace that the School of Faith is for you, then we invite you to apply. We will do everything within our power to ensure that finance is not a hurdle for you and you have the opportunity to attend School if accepted.
Our founders did not want money to stop people from pursuing what God has for their lives. Our founders felt called to build a place where students could come to go deeper with God, believing God for provision for their needs whilst learning financial diligence. He is faithful to complete the good work He has begun in us, so as He calls us He makes a way. Our commitment to you is to train you how to have faith for provision whilst co-labouring with God to be financially responsible – and we’re all in it together.
Student contributions are set at $5,000 Australian dollars for First Year. There are also substantial additional costs including books, mission trip costs, living expenses and extra-curricular learning opportunities that are not covered by this $5,000. We expect students to partner with God and others for the provision needed and to date we have not encountered a student who has not seen the provision needed to study. If God does it for His other children, He will do it for you.
With that in mind, full expected costs and financial strategies will be discussed with each student upon acceptance into the course. If it is your heart’s desire to study, we invite you to apply as your first act of faith in studying First Year.
