The Online Campus Summer Intensive  provides a survey of the first 4 quarters of the Encounter School of Ministry over a fast 4-week 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!

Live Zoom Session Options (TUESDAYS):


Week 1: identity & transformation

LIVE ZOOM: JULY 20

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.

The following content to be released and watched prior to your live Zoom session:

SESSION 1: Identity & overview w/ patrick reis
SESSION 2: RENEWAL OF MIND, STUDENTS OF THE SUPERNATURAL W / JOE PHILIP

Week 2: POWER & HEALING

LIVE ZOOM: JULY 27

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 2: FIVE-STEP PRAYER MODEL

Week 3: HEARING GOD & THE PROPHETIC GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

LIVE ZOOM: AUG. 3 

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.

Week 4: INNER HEALING

LIVE ZOOM: AUG. 10

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.

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.

powerful LESSONS & speakers

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.

DYNAMIC zoom ROOMS

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. Live sessions will include breakout groups for activations and prayer ministry. 

WORLDWIDE 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 & IMPARTATION

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.
