SOM Plus

Apply for SOM+




The past eight years we have had hundreds of students completing Year 1, seeing many of those students go on to complete Year 2 and a few even move on to Year 3. The mission of School of Ministers continues to be to, “revive, refine and reach out.” Prayerfully we look for any opportunity to accomplish this mandate. Through prayer and much consideration and reflection, comes the addition of SOM+ to provide further equipping to various believers in any one of a number of life situations.


Who Is This For?

SOM+ is intended for students who fit into one of the following two categories: 1) are former students of School of Ministers 2) are over the age of 30.


What Is The Schedule?

Classes will be from 9am-12pm on Wednesday mornings (together with SOM Year 1 students). This will include a mix of teaching, small group discussion and personal reflection.

Our winter schedule will be “Confident Christianity” and will run January 23, 2019 – February 20, 2019. Classes will include approximately 4 hours of homework and will be taught by Thom Dick with one week taught by Ray Yoder. Here is an overview of the course:

Many approach “apologetics” and defending our faith with either fear or boredom and decide that such approaches are only for really smart people and deep thinkers. Through this course we’ll look at a few challenging questions that both believers & unbelievers wrestle with regularly. Topics will include, “Does Truth Exist,” “Is There a God,” “Which God is It” and “Why I Believe in the Bible.” The goal is to understand the value of apologetics and to grow confidence in our own faith.

Application Process

Those interested in signing up should click on SOM+ Application Form. A confirmation of the application will be sent by email.
