Many Christians don’t have a clear path to grow spiritually and end up missing out. The Rock School of Ministry is an equipping school that provides next-level training that fits into anyone’s schedule. So you can know your purpose and live the supernatural life God intended. This is accomplished through a variety of intentionally planned, in-depth experiences such as: Biblical Courses, Retreats, Saturday Seminars, Hands-On Ministry Practicum, Vision and Calling Coaching, and more.
The school is for any believer who is 18 or older and wants to get to the next level in their relationship with God. It’s not just for people who feel called to vocational ministry, or pastors, but it’s also for those who feel called to the workplace, entrepreneurs and business owners. We have had people from all ages and all vocations benefit from this program.
The Rock School of Ministry is a ministry school that includes, but is not limited to, the following: all classroom instruction, assessments, books & materials, online resources, weekly outreaches, a 4-day spiritual formation retreat, 3 Saturday Seminars, Personal Vision and Calling Coaching and more.
At Rock School of Ministry, you get to set your own pace for completing the program.
Classes are held Monday and Wednesday Mornings – 9:00am – 10:15am & 10:30am – 11:45am. If the mornings don’t work for your schedule, we have Evening options available! Evening classes will be held Tuesday and Thursday – 6:00pm – 7:15pm & 7:30pm – 8:45pm. ***Tuesdays will be online***
