OVERVIEW

A 3 PHASE PROGRAM

The MAP School is a 3-Phase training program designed to equip young leaders for the unique dynamics of prayer and missions in this generation. Each of the 3 phases will have a particular focus as well as a missional assignment incorporated into it.

***There is a Phase 1 “Immersion” option for those who want to take a semester to dive into prayer and missions but aren’t quite sure yet whether they desire to or should devote the next few years to that specific kind of training. Here is an overview of the 3 phases of MAPS.

  • PHASE 1: IMMERSION

    Semester 1 is an immersion into the culture of prayer and missions and an introduction to its biblical foundations. During this semester, focused time is taken on the student’s personal healing and identity in Jesus. It is important to us that our young leaders and missionaries are healthy and whole individuals who have experienced comprehensive healing and restoration in their personal lives and in turn can minister that healing to a broken generation. Our first 8 weeks are focused on dealing with ungodly beliefs, wounds from the past, and the power of the work of Jesus on the cross. Alongside this focus on personal healing, the first semester will also consist of teaching God’s grand plan for the nations, the Spirit’s activity in this generation, hearing the voice of God, introduction to day and night, and introduction to supernatural ministry. Many classes will be taught by the leaders of The Prayer Furnace and leaders in the prayer and missions movement.

  • PHASE 2: PREPARATION

    This second phase of MAPS is focused on leadership training. In Semester 23 our students will be giving themselves to rigorous study of the Bible with relevant classes aimed at equipping them for the challenges they will face both theologically and practically in leadership in the decades to come. During this phase our students will have the opportunity for “hands on” training in leading corporate prayer, worship leading, singing or playing their instrument in a prayer and worship context, teaching, preaching, leading outreach teams and organizing events. Our goal is for our students to develop a life in the Spirit , Biblical understanding, and practical leadership skills to be successful in their long-term assignments. Classes and practicums will include Introduction to End Times, Jesus in the Gospels, Book of Daniel and Revelation, Perspectives in World Missions, New and Old Testament Survey, Sozo Training, Partnership Development… and much more!

  • PHASE 3: SENDING

    Phase 3 is the culmination of MAPS. During Semester 4 our students will be in specific training for cross cultural and frontier missions. Students will be placed on teams that will be sent together for 90 days into an unreached nation to give leadership to day and night prayer and evangelism in that context. This phase is designed to give our students a tremendously valuable experience in team leadership in a cross cultural context that will expand their perspective and worldview. Each team will pray through their assignment, raise funds together, cast vision together and be sent together. We are always amazed at the stories that they return with!
