Why Preacher School? Because everyone is a minister! Every believer has been called into the ministry of reconciling people back to God through living and spreading of the Gospel. Preacher School is designed to help people confidently preach and teach the gospel in the full demonstration of the Spirit, where signs, miracles, and wonders become normal; just as it is written in our Bibles.
Very early in His ministry Jesus stood in a synagogue and proclaimed, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, (and) to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor” (Luke 4:18-19). This same anointing rests on the believer, it is the Presence of the Holy Spirit in and on our lives. God’s intention is for all disciples of Jesus to minister in the same way Jesus ministered: full of the Holy Spirit and power, and obedient to accomplish all God’s purposes.
When Jesus sent out His first twelve disciples He said, “Proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give” (Matt 10:7-8). Matthew records Jesus explaining, “this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations,” and commanding, “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matt 24:14 and 28:19-20).
