FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHO CAN ATTEND?
ANYONE over the age of 18 with a High School Diploma or equivalent. It doesn't matter if you have served God since you were a child or only recently gave your life to Jesus, there is something for you. His word is living and active and He desires to meet us wherever we are spiritually and take us to new places of intimacy, revelation and empowerment through the Holy Spirit. This school is designed to do JUST that.
IS THIS PROGRAM ONLY FOR SOMEONE WANTING TO PURSUE FULL-TIME MINISTRY?
No! We believe every person is called by God for ministry and has gifts and purpose attached to their life. As a christian, you have a mandate to bring the Kingdom of God to the earth. So whether you are in food service, a business owner, a doctor, a nanny, a college student, or you desire to one day become a pastor, God wants to speak to you and through you. This program will widen the spiritual foundation of your life and give you the tools to be used by God, wherever you go.
WHAT IF I HAVE TAKEN ECCSM COURSES IN THE PAST?
As we launch our in-person, 9 month program, you can look forward to a completely different experience from our online classes. Some of the same topics will be covered, but in a new and fresh way. We believe that this program will benefit prior students, so much so, that we are offering a $50 discount to any past online students who join the live program. If you are a past student you can check your email for a promo code or contact us for more information on this discount.

DO I HAVE TO COMMIT TO THE ENTIRE 9 MONTH PROGRAM?

WHAT WILL THE PROGRAM BE LIKE?
The classes will look different each week. Classes will include live teachings, video teachings, activations, small groups and other activities to promote growth and give an opportunity for you to practice the things you are learning. You will also meet with your assigned revival group during classes which help to create community and build relationships with others in the school.
