The Main Campus Summer Intensive  provides a survey of the first 4 quarters of the Encounter School of Ministry over a fast 4-day period. The Summer Intensive  is a powerful experience that helps bridge the gap between the supernatural lifestyle of Jesus and the everyday experience of many believers. Focusing on topics from the first four quarters of Encounter School of Ministry, participants get a taste of the joy, transformation, and renewal that is at the heart of Encounter’s mission!

Sessions & speakers


night 1 
q1: identity & transformation

This class is an overview of the first quarter of the school. All fruitful ministry flows not from greater performance or striving but from our identity as beloved sons and daughters of God. The transformation that we need to undergo comes from the “renewal of your mind” (cf Rom 12:2) and thinking from the mind of Christ.

SESSION 1: Identity & overview
SESSION 2: RENEWAL OF MIND, STUDENTS OF THE SUPERNATURAL



night 2 
q2: HEARING GOD & THE PROPHETIC GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

Our goal is to grow in our relationship with God and strive to become more aware of the way he speaks to us for our own sake.  From that foundation, we are able to move in the prophetic gifts of the Holy Spirit which God enables us to hear His voice in different ways for the world around us. 

SESSION 1: HEARING GOD’S VOICE
SESSION 2: PROPHETIC ACTIVATIONS


night 3 
q3: POWER & HEALING

Jesus never proclaimed the Gospel without demonstrating it in power and love.  Jesus’ healing ministry is at the heart of His Gospel of power and he expects his disciples to minister his healing on the earth (cf Mt 16:18-19).  This class provides a foundation for partnering with the Holy Spirit to bring healing to the world around us. 

SESSION 1: THEOLOGY OF HEALING
SESSION 2: FIVE-STEP PRAYER MODEL

 


night 4
q4: INNER HEALING

Jesus Christ came to set the captives free and release prisoners.  He wants us to partner with Him to bring freedom and wholeness to a broken world.  One of the most intense quarters, this class will scratch the surface in understanding how we can be more effective in healing hearts with Christ and setting those free from oppression by the enemy.

SESSION 1: INNER HEALING & FREEDOM
SESSION 2: PRACTICAL TOOLS

what to expect?

breakthrough
PROPHETIC WORSHIP

The Encounter School of Ministry values freedom and joy in our response to God’s goodness. We express this in our school culture through childlike worship. Classes begin with an extended time of praise as we cultivate our awareness of God’s manifest presence and celebrate together His goodness.

RENEWAL OF THE MIND

Students learn about the nature of transformation by the renewal of the mind and seek to shift from thinking from an earthly perspective to a heavenly perspective in regard to ministry

MINISTRY TOOLS

We believe that as you embrace your identity and live out of the inheritance Jesus won for you, your mission, ministry, and God-given dreams will flourish in every season of life.

NEW CONNECTIONS

We believe community is essential. You’ll meet with other passionate disciples to encourage and build you up. You never know where the Spirit might lead with your new brothers and sisters in Christ.

PRAYER MINISTRY

You will have many opportunities to both receive and offer prayer ministry, practice with the gifts you have understood and activated, and share God’s heart with your neighbors.

REFRESHMENT & RENEWAL

Burnout often accompanies life in mission. Be renewed, transformed, and set on fire for the Kingdom.

healing testimonies

Sharing testimony is to prophesy what God is going to do again. We hope you will receive inspiration and healing from what God has done in the life of others.

Media

Check out our media projects and gain encouragement and inspiration.
