We love gathering as the generations and nations to seek God and learn from him and one another. We have seen a special richness during these times over the years, so we want to encourage anyone 18 upward; families, singles and couples, whichever stage of life you are in, to come and join us for this season to go deeper with God together.

Come ready to be challenged to know God more, and be equipped to step out in faith to make his name known in the nations.

See below for details and for options for further learning opportunities.

The Lecture Phase

The Lecture Phase is a time of 12 weeks of training to go deeper with God and to be equipped for the final Outreach Phase.

This time of training, based here at The King’s Lodge in the heart of England, will consist of teachings given by speakers from all over the world on varying topics to help you grow stronger in your faith in and knowledge of God.

Some topics that will be covered include:

  • Hearing God’s voice
  • The Character and Nature of God
  • The Cross and Lordship of Christ
  • Evangelism and Missions
  • The Father-Heart of God

This is just a taste of some subjects that will be covered in this time. Along with the lectures, your learning experience will include encountering God through worship, intercession, small groups, one-on-ones, work duties, and local evangelism. These activities are incorporated to create applicable opportunities that will bring you closer to God and others in a greater way.

The Outreach Phase

The Outreach Phase is the time following the Lecture Phase, where you will go out from The King’s Lodge to apply all that you’ve been learning to practical ministry in a local community or other nation.

We will be doing around 8 weeks of outreach for this school. During this time, you will have the opportunity to introduce people to the love of Jesus. It’s a chance to put into practice all that God has spoken to you during the Lecture Phase and reach out with His love to impact many lives. Through this time of outreach, you will see the kingdom of God further advanced in the nations. It’s a chance to say “Yes” to God and faithfully step out to experience how He wants to work in and through you to touch the lives of others.
