In our NWSSM Curriculum we will be using the BSSM DVD Curriculum along with our own speakers and teachings. The Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry’s (BSSM) vision is to teach, equip, train and commission the Saints to bring revival to the four corners of the earth. The DVD curriculum is designed to enable churches to start schools of ministry and/or supplement their current teaching material with the supernatural. The dynamic group of speakers including Bill Johnson, Kris Vallotton, Danny Silk, Eric Johnson, Kevin & Theresa Dedmon, Dann Farrelly, Bernie Ooley, Mark Brookes, Gabe Valenzuela, Paul Manwaring and Banning Liebscher bring transforming messages of the revival culture, inheritance, leadership, activation, healing, the prophetic and Biblical studies.
We have five main sources of instruction. We have live staff instructors that teach on Bible, prophetic ministry, healing ministry, leadership and so much more. The school staff also does a great deal of coaching throughout the year.
Second, we utilize video curriculum from the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry, shown above. This includes a variety of world-renowned instructors.
Third, we utilize guest instructors that are regionally recognized and sometimes internationally recognized apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers (see section on Guest Instructors). These guest instructors are brought in one Saturday a month for about 5 hours of instruction. The students are able to be involved with the instructor on a fairly smaller basis this way and have instruction, question and answer time and ministry time with these amazing leaders.
Fourth, we utilize required reading as a portion of our educational process. These are books that present foundational truths that help build the students understanding, knowledge and character. The reading assignment is a little more than one book per month.
Last and the most exciting is our hands-on learning. We require each student to stay plugged in to their home church and to serve a required amount of hours in their home church and stay accountable with their pastor. We also require students to serve a certain number of nights through the year in the Lower Columbia Healing Rooms. Through this ministry, they learn about intercessory prayer, ministering to people, discernment, deliverance and healing ministry. There are also opportunities in class, in field trips and through ministry trip opportunities with our leaders to minister.
Through hands-on ministry, the students learn more than head knowledge and actually have spiritual skills when they graduate.
