What is School of Ministers?

School of Ministers is an eight-month discipleship opportunity for young adults (ages 18-30) run yearly from September to April at Southland Church in Steinbach MB. The goal is to build incredibly strong foundations of faith in Jesus Christ through learning how to align our hearts with His and allowing Him to revive us from within. This creates space to refine us to live holy lives, and propels us to intentionally reach out to advance His Kingdom in our community and beyond. We desire to see willing disciples of Jesus working with the local church and strengthening a generation for whatever lies ahead!




"I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts."
Isaiah 57:15b NLT



"I will bring that group through the fire and make them pure.  I will refine them... They will call on my name, and I will answer them."
Zechariah 13:9 NLT



"I will make you as a light for the nations, that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth."
Isaiah 49:6b, ESV

What to Expect

School days are set on Wednesdays and Fridays, as well as an optional Monday morning session. This provides students plenty of time for volunteer hours, homework and part-time work. This unique aspect of the school opens the door to being intentional in the workplace, at home, and in community as students learn and grow in a variety of areas such as:

  • Hearing God
  • Old Testament survey
  • Dating and Marriage
  • End Times
  • Attributes of God
  • Confident Christianity
  • Evangelism
  • The Importance of the Church

Students are also giving an opportunity to receive direct mentorship in one of the following areas:

  • Worship
  • Deeper Bible Study
  • Prayer
  • Small Group Leading

As a mission of Southland Church, we expect students to participate in regular church activities and church-wide events. These include joining a small group, attend weekend messages, monthly Prayer Summits and volunteering in the church. All of these act as catalysts for hands on learning outside the classroom.
