SCHOOL OF MINISTRY
WHY EVANGEL SCHOOL OF MINISTRY?
Evangel’s School of Ministry core axiom is “That you may live”. It is drawn from the scripture in Philippians 1:9-11 (NLT) where Paul prays for the Philippian church encouraging them to grow in love, knowledge, understanding, and action so that they may truly live lives pleasing to God. ESOM is also a great introductory school into ministry training.
The school of ministry is also designed to help students navigate through three unique challenges that this new generation faces.
Firstly, we recognize that the transition from youth/young adult ministry to the larger church body is a difficult one with few relationships to carry it through. ESOM is designed to connect you relationally and missionally to the wider church.
Secondly, we recognize that the world of young adults is increasingly hostile to the Christian faith. ESOM exists to equip our students to face that world confidently, both intellectually and spiritually.
Finally, we recognize that some may be feeling a call to ministry but aren’t entirely sure. ESOM provides the opportunity to test the waters of God’s call in a part-time, informal environment.
