What is ESOM?
What is Encounter School Of Mission?
Encounter School of Mission is a supernatural school of mission designed to equip and raise up kingdom carriers who bring back life to every corner of culture. It is a nine month course that helps you discover your kingdom identity, understand your kingdom authority and brings clarity to your kingdom assignment. Believers are people entrusted with enormous authority and an assignment to lead the earth into life. Encounter school of Mission helps you fulfill that assignment as you learn how to live a natural supernatural life through practical hands on experience in the community.
Why are we doing it?
Something incredible happens when the church shows up in the community and demonstrates the kingdom with compassion and authority. God has given His church supernatural power to bring life to broken communities, broken workplaces, broken families, and broken bodies. Our desire is to help the Church all over the world to leave the building. We want to see a generation raised up who are intentionally infecting their community with the Kingdom through the daily routine of life... The result: the lost are saved, the sick healed, the poor welcomed and the captives freed.
How do we do it?
By being trained and apprenticed here in Causeway Coast Vineyard you will learn what it means to bring the Kingdom to everyone, everyday, everywhere through these key distinctive aspects:
• Local church based - with a commitment to local community involvement & focus on the place to which God has called us.
• Relentlessly Supernatural - with an emphasis on ministering in the love, power and truth of Jesus and following His ministry style.
• Mission and Evangelism - with a clear focus on reaching the lost by demonstrating the extravagant love of God to a wide range of people.
• ‘Hands on’ Training & Experience - with a ‘learn by doing’ emphasis where teaching content explains and interprets the ministry.
• Boldness, Passion & Risk - are all centre stage. ESOM provides a safe place within a loving atmosphere to learn, step out and take risks.
Who is it for?
We are looking for people who refuse to reduce faith to what’s manageable, live beyond what’s comfortable, and reach for the impossible. Our students are devoted followers of Jesus Christ, team players with definite leadership potential, and a passion to learn how to live a life of extreme risk. We are open to students of all-ages who are ready to be step out and be stretched!
