When Jesus walked this earth, He healed the sick, raised the dead, cleansed lepers and cast out demons. When He departed, He commanded His followers to do the same. This course explains how such a supernatural life is possible.
Through a series of eight training modules, students are introduced to the essential concepts and practices of Spirit-empowered ministry, and they are guided through exercises designed to activate the supernatural in and through their lives.
This course provides a biblical understanding of the gifts of the Spirit (e.g., the prophetic, healing, miracles) and other aspects of supernatural ministry (e.g., prayer, revival culture, deliverance). Emphasis is given to application in real life situations. The training series approximates the content of the college version of the course.
