are affiliated with CFIA. The training provides the attendees with two-weeks of
concentrated sessions with teaching on grace, leadership, worship, and the Kingdom
of God. As of now, the attendees are enrolled by invitation only. If you are interested

Our Pastors and Leaders School is a two-week, intensive training program designed
to give those who are already active in ministry a solid grace-theology foundation
as well as teaching in other key subjects such as Servant-Leadership, Worship, Women
in Ministry, and the Kingdom of God.
Attendees range from village pastors to Bishops and high-ranking ministry officials.
Some have grade school level education, some have master’s degrees, and there are
many in between.
No matter the background of the attendee, we have thankfully experienced overarching
excitement and appreciation from the graduates of this program.
The School is held at a location determined by the host leader. Each school session
is limited to 30-40 attendees in order to keep class sizes small and allow the teaching
to have the greatest impact possible on those attending. Sessions are taught by
Harvey and Deborah as well as by local ministry leaders who are affiliated with CFIA.
The purpose of the school is to equip the attendees to teach the subjects to their
Students are selected and invited by the Host leader keeping in mind the 30,60, 100
fold harvest principle related in the parable of the sower.
Students are assigned a group of cohorts for discussion sessions to aid in immediate
application of the subjects learned. Cohorts discuss new material daily and select
a representative to present their group’s discussion conclusions to the class.
Graduating students receive a certificate as a statement and proof of their completion
of the program. These students work very hard throughout the program and the certificates
are well deserved!
Harvey and Deborah usually conduct a three-day follow up with graduates one year
after completion of the program. The follow ups include more advanced teaching on
the subjects introduced during the school as well as direct question and answer sessions
to allow the graduates to work through real-life issues they encountered when teaching
the material to their own congregations.
