About the School
The boy Samuel ministered before the Lord under Eli. In those days the word of the Lord was rare; there were not many visions. 1Samuel 3:1, NIV84
Throughout history, the need for the true voice of God remains critical to navigate life in a manner that both pleases the Lord and reflects the reality of a heavenly Kingdom. Yet, as in Samuel’s day, “the word of the Lord is rare.” Oh there are MANY words. Many even ascribed to heavenly origin. Yet tragically, in so many instances, both the message and the messenger are either so esoteric or the word so vague or inaccurate as to bring disrepute on the entire ministry of the prophetic. This is why many churches have abandoned the prophetic in their midst. It is less for theological reasons than for the need for submitted, credible individuals to rise up and speak up with the accuracy, power and authority that God’s word also has inherent in it. This is why we created the School of Prophecy (SOP) … to train men and women how to operate accurately in their gifting and calling and be a blessing to those that receive their ministry.
The School of Prophecy, part of the Schools of Empowerment, focuses on equipping you with in-depth instruction, impartation, and hands-on equipping in prophetic reception and ministry. During the school we will examine the Scriptural basis for ongoing prophetic ministry, its proper place and placement in the church and guidelines for its contemporary practice. You will also learn, through practical activations, how to hone your skills in communicating revelation on an individual and corporate level. SOP will be divided between information, impartation and demonstration that will allow you to return to your church, campus and community confident in His voice speaking to and operating through your life.

How our students have been encountered
“One of the greatest impact moments at SOE was during our time of healing and deliverance. The women who prayed for me explained what my root issue was and graciously and tenderly walked me through it. I received sonship that day. I knew what sonship was, but it was more head knowledge than personal identification. It is now my heart’s cry: I am His beloved and He is my Abba!!”
“Oh My! Life after SOE is certainly not the same. Since I attended SOE I am more confident in my giftings through the Holy Spirit and I have had the opportunity to help minister to others as God has made opportunities available. SOE also gave me the opportunity to experience healing for some deep inner wounds. To God be the Glory!!!!”
“SOE gave me a lot of confidence in God and a solid foundation for closeness with Him. Since then I have been getting to see co-workers miraculously healed and/or strangers supernaturally encouraged.”
“Life after SOE has been great! I have so many tools in my tool belt and I feel very equipped to access the power and person of God in a confident way. Since the school I’ve just been looking to stir up everything that was deposited in me.”
“I learned so much at SOE. I appreciated the intellectual information as well as the activation. The various speakers were extremely motivational. The school solidified my faith and expanded my boundaries in a good way. “
“I appreciated the foundational focus on God’s word and intimacy with God at SOE. That both of those should be what we build on in walking in the gifts and power of God.”
