Making Disciples the Way Jesus Did
"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you."
Covenant Love Church takes the Lord's Commision to "make disciples" seriously. Our mission statement in the School of Ministry is: "Making Disciples the Way Jesus Did."
Our mission is accomplished through a unique ministry process which helps a disciple discover, develop, and deploy their spiritual giftings and walk in their ministry calling.
The Covenant Love Church School of Ministry trains a disciple to:
- Discover their gifts by use of spiritual gifts testing and gain deeper understanding by consistently using their identified giftings.
- Develop their gifts and spiritual maturity according to the ministry style of Jesus.
- Deploy into their ministry calling with the assistance of pastor and Ministry Leaders in their area of chosen ministry.
- Bible Study Methods
- Progressive Revelation
- Old Testament Bible Survey
- New Testament Bible Survey
- Invading Babylon
- Spiritual Leadership
Classes are attended in conjunction with Ministry Service in a chosen area. Students in the School of Ministry move through their course of study together as a class and receive:
- A deepening understanding of their relationship with the Lord
- A solid Biblical foundation for ministry
- In-depth studies of the Word of God
- Growth in community with other students
- Opportunities to serve in various areas of ministry at CLC.
Classes are held at Covenant Love Church from 7:00 to 8:30 pm on Wednesdays along with our discipleship classes. There are four yearly quarters for CLC Discipleship Ministries:
- Q1: Winter (Jan - Mar)
- Q2: Spring (Apr - Jun)
- Q3: Summer (Jul - Aug)
- Q4: Fall (Sep - Dec)
The School of Ministry is both for those who believe that they are called to a specific area of ministry and for those who simply desire to deepen their walk with the Lord through a challenging course of Bible study, practical ministry experience, and personal relationships.
Graduates of the School of Ministry are awarded a Graduation Certificate. Graduation takes place each June along with CLC members graduating from High School, College, and Trade Schools.

School of Ministry Overview
As an aid to assist you in determining your spiritual gifts as they pertain to ministry, you may take a spiritual gifts test. A listing of example tests will be provided upon receiving your application to help you personally explore your gifitings as you serve in a ministry area.
At CLC, we believe that the Word of God and the Spirit of God work hand-in-hand to impart the truth of God to growing disciples. Students attending the School of Ministry at CLC receive a great deal of Biblical instruction. They are immersed in a culture where the Holy Spirit becomes primary instructor and the Kingdom of God comes alive through the pages of the Bible in everyday life. The School of Ministry uses the unique ministry style of Jesus to train and fully equip students to hear from the Lord - to say what He is saying and do what He is doing. Students learn how to read, understand, and live the Bible.
They also learn how to pray, to worship, to witness to the lost, heal the sick and much more. Jesus' gifts and callings for His disciples are always developed in a community of faith with other disciples. Everything that Jesus did with His disciples and that we do as His disciples, primarily originates and develops within a community of believers which then spreads out into the disciples' sphere of influence. Through our discipleship process. the School of Ministry endeavors to help believers become lifelong learners and doers of the Word and Will of God.
