New Hope School of Ministries
Any time a believer dives into deeper study of the Word, it is inevitable that he will be blessed from the effort. New Hope Ministries, in keeping with their mission statement and purpose, has sponsored a nine-month, extensive Bible training course for the 26 years.
Attendees in the New Hope School of Ministries (NHSM) have the opportunity to study in-depth matters pertaining to their faith, Christian witness, prayer, as well as practical Bible study.
“Everything in life has a start and an end. We don’t want to ever ‘graduate’, but to take it and make it a lifestyle,” an alumni says.
New Hope School of Ministries students graduate after attending two classes each week during the course of the nine-month program.
Students will have specialized training in many areas of their Christian life with classes in How to Study the Bible, Faith, Sound Doctrines of Christianity, Prayer, The Holy Spirit, Evangelism, The Book of Romans, The Biblical Feasts, Covenants, Leadership and in-depth research into the Old and New Testament. In addition to the classroom lectures, each student is required to complete eight-teen hours serving in six different areas of ministry during church services, along with three church sponsored events.
Gwen Brown, who graduated from the first class of the School of Ministries in 1991, now teaches two of the classes and serves as the director of NHSM. Brown comments that the school has changed over the years and that classes offered now are focused not merely on learning but on helping each student find and grow in their own personal walk and calling.
“They’re learning to implement what they’re learning.” Brown explains. “They’re putting their faith into action.”
In spite of how the classes have changed over the decades, she still recalls how it felt to be a new graduate of the School of Ministries.
“I knew that after those nine months, I knew the Word better and had a closer relationship with the Lord. What I’m doing today is directly because of the foundation placed in me that year, the NHSM is an eternal investment.,” she says.
The school is open to everyone, and New Hope has always encouraged and invited students from other churches. It is not necessary to take all of the classes or to take them all in one school year.
They can be completed in one or two years.
There is a cost involved for the school, but that should not deter anyone from attending. Different payments options can be made available.
