"shepherd the flock of God among you...And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory."

1 Peter 5:2-4   

We are all called. Some are called to the marketplace, some to the church, but we are all called to release the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.

Ephesians 4:11-12

"11 And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the [d]saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ..."

If you feel a calling as a pastor or apostle to either the church or to the marketplace, or are just interested in learning more about what it looks like to be a shepherd, join us for this week long intensive the evenings of June 12-16.

The school will conclude on Friday, June 16 at 8:30 with a certificate ceremony and prayer.

Subjects include, but not limited to: Your Calling, History of the Church, Leadership, Preparing a Sermon, Interpreting the Word Correctly, The Purpose and Administration of Communion, Walking in the Authority of Heaven, Understanding Spiritual Warfare from a New Covenant Lens, Knowing Who You Are in Christ, The Heart of A Shepherd, Marketplace Pastor.
