The turningpoint School of Ministry is a training and development arm of the turningpoint Churches which delivers courses to assist in the enlargement and development of individuals to reach their full potential as God designed.
Biblically Based — accepting that the Bible is the very Word of God. Through a systematic study of God’s Word participants will become thoroughly grounded in the Scriptures and in their faith, fulfilling the apostle Paul’s exhortation to, “Do your best to present yourselves to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” (2 Tim 2:15)
Intensely Practical — equipping people for effective ministry. Our desire is not only to impart theoretical knowledge, but also to give practical training in all aspects of ministry. “Christ gave some to be apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, to equip God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.” (Ephesians 4:11-12)
Character Transforming — developing a strong discipleship emphasis. Our aim is to develop men and women of Christ-like character. We are therefore committed to developing the essential qualities of discipleship and desire to see a growth in stability and integrity, the distinguishing marks of all followers of Jesus. “In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in Heaven.” (Matt 5:16)
Spiritually Inspiring — imparting spiritual life and power. Our aim is to instruct men and women on how to move in the dimensions of the supernatural power of God (being open to the works of the Holy Spirit), developing an intimate relationship with Him is a priority of any ministry. “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you and you will be My witnesses”. (Acts 1:8.)
To train effective Christian Ministry in His Church locally and abroad effectively communicating the Gospel.
Each course at turningpoint School of Ministry is specifically designed to train and equip men and women for the work of the ministry according to Ephesians 4:11-12.
We recognise that a ministry depends totally on the gifting of God and our aim is to identify, develop and release the gifts that God has given.
