School of the prophets

And Elisha returned to Gilgal, and there was a famine in the land. Now the sons of the prophets were sitting before him.”
2 Kings 4:38 NKJV


We exist to show forth the glory of Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit to a fallen humanity, to bring restoration to the whole person in spirit, mind, and body, to educate the whole man in all aspects of life: to equip men and women to become leaders for the next generation of revival, and to bring back the Church to where it once was in the book of Acts. School of the Prophets is a place where minds do shine with the light of academic excellence, but it is also a place where hearts burn with the love of Jesus.

John 5:35 KJV- “He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.”

What is The School Of Prophets?

The School of Prophets is a one to three year leadership program that partners with Bethesda College and is designed to develop individuals who feel called into full time ministry. Within three years the students will have hands-on ministry experience, receive an accredited associate’s degree in Biblical Studies with Bethesda College, and have the opportunity to become licensed with Victory Church upon proof of evidence of calling.

Our goal is to see students grow in their Christian walk and to become equipped for their future in ministry or the workplace. School of the Prophet students typically enroll full time at Bethesda College and students’ ages range from 18 to 25. Since Bethesda College courses are held nightly students are able to work outside jobs and/or attend their local colleges to further their education.
