RFT School of Ministry Courses
Note: Courses may change from semester to semester. Please contact the church two weeks prior to each semester to hear the latest classes.
NEW MEMBERS: This class will help you understand what is expected of you, as a member of Riverside Faith Temple Ministries. If we understand and accept the rules of conduct, we will be an encouragement to one another and not a stumbling block.
FUNDAMENTAL FOUNDATION: Every building needs a strong foundation. The most impressive buildings will collapse without it. This class will prepare you for all of life's trials and tribulations that you might be a man or woman of great spiritual and moral strength.
DISCIPLESHIP I: There are important attitudes and outlooks one must have to succeed in Christ. A disciple is more than merely 'born again,' but bears a responsibility of service to his Lord. You will learn the value of obedience and dedication to God as well as the joys of service to Him. You will also learn to recognize the tricks of our great enemy and those who serve him.
DISCIPLESHIP II: In this class, we learn of our responsibilities toward the local church and of that church's responsibility to the local community. Our stewardship requires that we repay some of the grace God has bestowed upon us by offering that grace toward others. We must remember from where He has bought us and assist those less fortunate to obtain His grace for themselves.
DISCIPLESHIP III: "Taking off the Mask" - Facing God and man honestly without falsehood. Recreating yourself through the Word of God as a complete individual, submitted to His Word both in thought and deed.
MINISTRY TRAINING: What are my gifts and talents? Where do I fit in? How do I find what God has for me to do?
PROPHETS: The ministry of a prophet. This class will enable you to function as a prophet of God. No gift is more needed in today's world, and it may be that no gift has been more abused. In this class you will learn to accurately hear and relay the Word that God has placed within you. A prophet must be of unimpeachable character and integrity. To speak for God they must hear His voice clearly, speaking a sure word, uncolored by the cares of life.
Five-fold Ministry Program courses are coming soon. Our goal is to fully prepare our students to function in all areas of ministry.
