Check Out the MCM Ministry School

mcm-ministry-school_newlogoThis past year we started a new ministry school in partnership with Mission SOS. The MCM Ministry School is a branch campus of the Mission SOS Bible College in Stockholm, Sweden. Classes are held four days a week here in Pittsburgh at Allison Park Church. I have personally worked with the students at some of our MCM church plants this past year and am so impressed with their passion for God and ministry. If you know someone that is looking to go into ministry, I would definitely encourage them to check out the school. Here’s a brief explanation about the school:

The MCM Ministry School is designed to provide a prospective student not only with classroom training but with real life experiences in ministry. Every day we involve students in our PRAYER SCHOOL. Once a week, we engage in mcmstudentsPRACTICAL COMMUNITY OUTREACH in connection with one of eight churches that have been planted in Pittsburgh. Once a year, the students participate in an INTERNATIONAL TRIP to work in partnership with Mission SOS in a Signs and Wonders Festival among UNREACHED PEOPLE’S GROUPS.

The passion of the MCM Ministry School is to raise up faith-filled adventurers who are committed to living out the supernatural lifestyle of the book of Acts. The practical experiences come in the context of a growing church that is actively planting churches and sending teams to reach unreached people groups.

A Winning Lifestyle – Johannes Amritzer

Johannes Amritzer spoke tonight at our Leader’s Roundtable for our MCM churches.  It was a powerful night!  Here’s the notes:

  1. Never stop praying (‘Devote yourselves to prayer…’ Col. 4:2a)
    • ‘Salvation is not just a logical decision, it is a miracle.’ – The gospel is the power of God…
    • When we pray, we are not changing God, but we are being changed.
    • Also, when we pray we change the spiritual atmosphere.
    • The gospel without spiritual warfare and prayer is just intellectual.
  2. Expect the Best/Positive (‘…being watchful and thankful.’ Col. 4:2b)
    • Always expect something.
    • The Holy Spirit wants to lead you to good waters.
  3. Open Doors (‘And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ.’ Col. 4:3a)
    • God is going to open doors for you and you have to expect Him to open up doors.
    • This is the great thing with partnerships.  We can walk through each others’ open doors.
  4. Right Language (‘…that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should.’ Col. 4:4)
    • Don’t speak the church language.  If you can help it, don’t even start speaking the church language.
  5. Proper Conduct/Behavior (‘Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders…’ Col. 4:5a)
    • Humor is a great key.  If you’re a happy Christian, that will solve a lot for you.
    • Be someone that people love to be around.  That people aren’t avoiding you.
  6. Don’t Miss Your Chance (‘…make the most of every opportunity.’ Col. 4:5b)
    • The Holy Spirit plays on the same team as you.
    • When the Holy Spirit passes you the ball, don’t blow it!
    • This isn’t your team or your game.  You’re not in this by yourself.
  7. Spice Up Your Speech (‘Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.’ Col. 4:6)
    • If we could quit being so religious all the time and give some answers that people can actually understand, things would be better.
    • We must combine grace with salt.
