Your instructors at the School of Faith have a heart for revival and are uniquely suited to raising people into their call.
School instructors are dedicated to building a move of God that awakens and influences Australia and other nations. They work to raise revivalists into a movement, training men and women of faith who can lead the nation to turn our hearts towards God, healing our land and people.
You’ll be learning from Australian instructors who have studied under people such as Bill Johnson, John Paul Jackson and Kris Vallotton, who are walking out supernatural ministry now, and are commissioned by God to raise up the next generation of fruitful disciples. They work to enhance the BSSM First Year content through their gifts to raise disciples, adding to lessons from Bill Johnson, and Kris Vallotton.
Our staff have an acute understanding of how Christians are to be salt and light - leading, loving and adding to the world without being of it. They have worked on the mission field, in top accounting firms, in education, as trades people and in the arts, and also fulfill offices of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers. They teach to share their experience in supernatural ministry and walking intimately with God, both in ministry positions and in secular jobs.
The School also welcomes guests throughout the year to teach on subjects in which they have specialty. Guest instructors may be recognised prophetic voices, those who excel in dream interpretation, bible exegesis, photography and more. Guests add a richness to our course, so we enjoy drawing on the gifts of specialist instructors to teach, impart, and enhance your understanding and preparedness for graduation.

LEADERSHIP - AUSTRALIAN BASED

Tristan and Sian believe there's nothing greater than someone realising their worth to God and stepping into the fullness of life with Him. They know we were made glorious from the beginning, and it is their hearts' desire to see the sons and daughters of God know who they are in Him and rise up, empowered to live from His Kingdom. The Conway's believe God is never far from sinners and saved alike. Their passion is to help people understand that there is no sacred and secular division, there is only the Kingdom. Our God is faithful and as we act to reveal Him, cities and nations will be transformed!

Bill and Beni Johnson
Bill and Brenda (Beni) Johnson are the Senior Pastors of Bethel Church. Bill is a fifth generation pastor with a rich heritage in the things of the Spirit. Together they serve a growing number of churches that have partnered for revival. This apostolic network has crossed denominational lines in building relationships that enable church leaders to walk in both purity and power.
The present move of God has brought Bill into a deeper understanding of the phrase, "on earth as it is in heaven." Heaven is the model for our life and ministry. Jesus lived with this principle by only doing what He saw His Father doing. Learning to recognise the Holy Spirit's presence, and how to follow His lead will enable us to do the works of Christ, destroying the works of the devil. Healing and deliverance must become the common expression of this gospel of power once again.
Kris and Kathy Vallotton
Kris Vallotton is a noted prophetic voice in Northern California, and has trained prophetic teams in this region. He is a sought after speaker with a vision for equipping an "Elijah generation" for the end-time harvest. Kathy's practical wisdom and prophetic insight combine to give her a unique and profound ministry as both an instructor and BSSM's administrator. Kathy is also an anointed worship leader, assisting with the training of the worship teams at BSSM.
Both Kris and his wife Kathy have a vision to raise up a company of warriors to impact this generation for Christ. Their goal is to see the fulfillment of Isaiah 61 with their own eyes. This prophecy begins with individual people getting delivered and healed - it ends with the ruined cities being restored.
