equipping ordinary people to lead others to BE the Church
Our dream is to help ordinary people who desire to serve Jesus by giving them significant opportunities to glorify God and push back darkness.
Our dream is that ordinary people would rise up out of the cushioned seats of our churches and move beyond the walls of the church to take the church to people.
Our dream is that ordinary people that most would see as the B team would rise up and claim their purpose God has called them to.
Our dream is that ordinary people would see that God has uniquely qualified them and called them to make disciples of all nations, neighborhoods and circles of influence.
Our dream is that students would know they can be the church NOW and make a significant impact for Jesus.
Our dream is that ordinary people would truly seek Jesus and be willing to be in accountable relationships as they are in the battle for souls.
Our dream is that a seminary type education that doesn't cost a fortune would be available to All!
Our dream is that ordinary people would move from collecting data to utilizing it to make disciples of all nations.
Our dream is that it would be this generation that is the last person to share the Gospel with the last person who has never heard the Gospel before Jesus comes back.
Our dream at the conclusion is that you will have drawn closer to Jesus, been strengthened as the body of Christ and either start a new work to reach the lost or help another ministry in reaching the lost.
Each semester you will go through one or two 8 week courses to help sharpen you. Examples of classes will be Biblical Interpretation, Apologetics, Old Testament, New Testament, World Religions, etc. The whole goal is to give you a biblical framework to do your ministry.
1. Church Planting
2. Local Missions --this will include partnering you with a local ministry or church plant, including Mobile Missions Network, to serve in and lead in. We have partners throughout Tulsa where you can get hands on ministry experience.
3. International Missions --this will include partnering with our international missions director, Earl Krumsiek. You will get practical experience in learning how to prepare yourself and others on the mission field along with opportunities throughout the year to participate in international mission trips.
The main focus here is helping you find where God wants you to plant to glorify Him and push back the darkness. It’s not just seeing or learning or hearing but experiencing the same power that raised Jesus from the dead. It’s “tasting and seeing the Lord is good.” Many in our churches see and hear, but they never experience God for themselves. They are living vicariously through others, BUT God wants for YOU to experience Him!
How much does it cost?
Your cost is the cost of books which you will find out before the first week of class plus we ask you to give a gift card to a restaurant or other gift card at the end of the semester for the efforts of those teaching.
