what is school of ministers

School of Ministers is an eight-month discipleship opportunity for young adults (ages 18-30) that runs yearly from September to April at Southland Church in Steinbach MB. Imagine joining a group of people that spend 2 days a week seeking God through prayer, studying His word and learning to live life on mission.

Through SOM we want to live out what the church experienced in Acts. We want you to have the opportunity to grow in a passionate relationship with Jesus. We hope to empower you to be a joyful, generous, and fearless disciple of Christ.

We want to joyfully follow Jesus. Forsaking all else, living lives of passionate
generosity while having a confidence in our faith that causes us to be fearless.

what to expect

School days are set on Wednesdays and Fridays. This provides students plenty of time for volunteer hours, homework and part-time work. This unique aspect of the school opens the door to being intentional in the workplace, at home, and in community.

Students will have the opportunity to discover what the bible says about end-times, hearing God’s voice, worship, prayer and various cultural topics.

We will also learn about how to study the bible by doing an in-depth study of various books of the Bible. For those who want to specialize in learning about different topics we have many tracks to choose from. View Tracks

As a mission of Southland Church, we expect students to participate in regular church activities and church-wide events. These include joining a small group, attending weekend messages, monthly Prayer Summits and volunteering in the church. Together these work as catalysts for hands-on learning outside the classroom.

tracks

We want to empower you to use your passions and gifts that God has given you, to bless the church and the community! As part of each school day we will be giving opportunity for hands-on training in tracks of your choice. All track choices will be made in the first month of the SOM.
