There is no better way to start off the new year than renewing your commitment to be a fully activated Christian who understands the Words, Works, and Wonders of Jesus in your life.

Understanding the Old Testament II
Joshua—in Hebrew the same name as Jesus—led God’s people into the Promised Land after 40 years of wandering. What does God teach us about him and Caleb as the people of faith who were forerunners of what God’s plan was for all the people? The lessons about living in the fullness of God’s promises are just as valid for us today who are to follow the New Testament Joshua—Jesus—into the “land” he promised us. God gave us this historical section of the Scriptures to show us in detail what living by faith means, and how the kings, sanctuary, priesthood, lives and words of many people were selectively picked by the Holy Spirit to give us timelessly applicable lessons about how to daily walk with the great I AM.

God wants us to learn how to live responsibly in the natural world so that we will understand how to live in a spiritual way that will please Him. There are over 2,300 verses dealing with money in the Bible, but only about 500 on prayer and faith. God causes wealth to flow to certain people and away from others. And so does the devil. God desires to make you as wealthy as possible without destroying you (1 Timothy 6:9). You build the foundation that determines how much wealth God can give you. That foundation is your character, which is built through the many choices you make in life. This course will give you an abundance of principles for financial success which you can apply to build the character you need for more of God’s wealth to flow into your life.
The God-given vision of this Bible School is to raise up pastors and church leadership teams to start and lead new congregations both near and far. There is nothing more exciting than the birth of new Kingdom Families who are reaching cities and nations today and for generations to come. In I Corinthians 3:10 Paul described the new churches he helped plant as buildings which were carefully built from the ground up. He said, “By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care.”
In this class Pastor Dale will impart the plans, strategies, values, and processes involved in starting and leading a congregation like Heart for the World Church. God taught him and his wife, Sharon, as they built two churches from the ground up. These churches are continuing to grow and impact nations to this day.
Come and learn, from Pastor Walker’s 45 years of experience. He will teach you the details of how to design and lay out the blueprints required for building a church with a healthy, vibrant congregation. Come and get connected with others who sense the call of God to bring together the gifts and talents of people of all ages and backgrounds to become wise builders in God’s kingdom.

Learning Evangelism from Jesus
As the greatest evangelist, Jesus exemplified how to attract people to the gospel. He modeled how to initiate spiritual conversations full of grace and truth. Christian evangelism, then, both in theory and practice, must be shaped by His pattern. Each class of Learning Evangelism from Jesus recounts one of those stories, draws useful lessons for student lives and communication of the gospel, and concludes with questions for further reflection and application. This class is a “field driven experience” course. Each student locates a weekly evangelism project, usually at his or her own church, then comes to the professor to work out a plan for supervision. The student registers and pays for it as a college course; and will purchase the textbook and will select from the reference list a book to read and write a report on; and spend at least an hour per week cultivating, developing, strategic relationships and evangelizing opportunities and turning in a weekly report on that outreach activity.
Prayer is powerful! the Queen of Scotland once said, "I fear the prayers of John Knox more than all the armies of foreign powers." All the great revivals of history have come from prayer. Miraculous signs and wonders come when people pray. In fact, an Oxford University scholar write a book called Shaping History Through Prayer and Fasting which details how many times the course of history was changed by prayer, including many miraculous events in the founding of America. Since the Bible records the most powerful kinds of prayer, this class will lead you through fascinating stories of the Bible and teach you how to pray with power for supernatural results in your world. Come for new insights that will change your life.
