MAPS has multiple 1 year schools around the country. We are currently running schools in VA /FL/KC. These schools are an immersion into the culture of prayer and missions and an introduction to its biblical foundations. Our schools include 1 semester of training and 1 semester of sending. During the 1st 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 healing and restoration in their personal lives and in turn can minister that healing to those that are broken and hurting. Alongside this focus on personal healing, instructors from around the nation will teaching a 7 module course on God’s grand plan for the nations, the Spirit’s activity in this generation, hearing the voice of God, introduction to day and night prayer, supernatural ministry, history of missions, and many more 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. 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.
During the 2nd semester of our schools, 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 serving day and night prayer and evangelism at one our bases in the 10-40 window. Each team will pray through their assignment, raise funds, cast vision and be sent together. This phase is designed to give our students the tremendously valuable experience in team leadership on the frontier that will expand their perspective and worldview. We are always amazed at the stories that they return with!
