SCHOOL OF MINISTRY

The Vision of SOM
School of Ministry provides in-depth foundational training in areas of Christian Ministry, Theology, Leadership and Christian Life Skills. This  School of Ministry serves the vision of Changing lives, Transforming Cities and Discipling nations. The school is committed to raise, equip and send Kingdom minded believers endowed with a healthy shift in emphasis from receiving in church and Lecture halls  to ministering in strategic spheres of societal influence with godly strategies and solutions for Governance, Business, Education, Media, Art& Entertainment, Family, and the Body of Christ.

Our Aim
To make our training

  • excellent, Biblical, practical
  • applied theology, not just academic
  • available to all, men and women
  • available at  minimal cost

Our Model and Pattern
The School of Ministry is modelled after the school of Tyrannus (Acts 19:9) where Apostle Paul during his extended ministry in Ephesus devoted a good measure of his time to teaching scriptures in the school of Tyrannus. While we do not know whether Tyrannus was the name of the school or its owner, we do know that Paul used this location to train believers from every walk of life in the teachings of the Scripture in order to impact the world for Christ. Later, Paul was able to say that “all of Asia has heard the Gospel” (Acts 19:10). No doubt, his ministry at the school of Tyrannus played a major role in that. Following this model, The School of Ministry provides a dynamic and interactive format to study God’s word in depth with excellent instruction adapted to the students schedule and circumstances. The School grants opportunities for students to connect, partner and network with Apostolic Leaders, Itinerant Ministers and Missions Mentors who have attained a high level of proficiency in missions and real life prototypes and models in different settings.

What makes The School of Ministry (SOM) Unique?

  • Training Takes Place on-site; Students do not have to leave their families, jobs or communities
  • Giving the task of the Great Commission to national believers
  • Portability of the Schools of Ministry allows the training curriculum to travel
  • Combines theoretical education with practical, on-the field training
  • Appropriate for many socio-economic levels
