School of Transformation
Full Time

NEW SEMESTER STARTING ON SEPTEMBER 3, 2024!

The Father’s House School of Transformation is a vocational ministry school. We combine class time with hands-on ministry and one-on-one mentoring so that students can put what they learn into practice in a safe environment.

The full-time school can take up to three years, starting with a foundational six months of teaching and training in Level 1. You would then graduate on to increased levels of practical ministry alongside teachings in Levels 2, 3, and 4.

You will live and work with us as part of our community and become part of our team. You will have the opportunity to take part in weekly mentoring appointments, monthly prayer ministry sessions, and church services on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

6 months

Build a foundation on Christ that will result in freedom, fruitfulness, and purpose. The focus is on you growing in relationship with Jesus and becoming who He has created you to be.

Part of your schooling will be practical application. This could include spending your afternoons in a local non-profit run by the Father's House Restoration Ministries, kids ministry, media, construction, and more.

Mentoring & Prayer Ministry

As a student of the School of Transformation, you will be assigned a mentor that will meet with you regularily and help you walk through this journey. You will also have someone to lead you through prayer ministry, going after healing for the wounds of the heart that build up through life's circumstances.

Personal Study

You will be given homework assignments throughout your time as a student. These assignments may include reading through the gospels, book reports, and progress journals. Assignments are carefully planned with the purpose of finding out who God is and who that makes you.
