Highlights from the School Leaders Gathering

School Leadership

We were honored to host leaders from around the world during our semi-annual School Leaders Gathering last week! During this time, our group gleaned powerful insight and wisdom from several leaders of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM). We also got to hear testimonies, ideas, and strategies from leaders of Eastgate European School of Supernatural Life (ESSL), Global Celebration School of Supernatural Ministry – New York (GCSSM), and Southern California School of Supernatural Ministry (SoCalSSM).

If you weren’t able to join us for the event, we want to make sure you also get to receive from this time of impartation! Check out the highlights below. May you be encouraged to continue to equip the body of Christ to see heaven invade every corner of the earth!

BSSM Panel

At the gathering, we were honored to hear from Dann Farrelly (BSSM Dean), Bernie Ooley (BSSM Bible Instructor and a Founding Staff Member), Gabe Valenzuela (BSSM Second Year Overseer), and Leslie Crandall (BSSM First Year Overseer). Drawing from their experience in leading at BSSM, they answered questions about how to develop leaders on a team, grow a kingdom culture, deploy students, and more!

SSM Panel

We were also blessed to host Kim Carter (ESSL Director and Co-Founder), Aaron Horton (GCSSM Director and Pastor), David Oh (SoCal SSM Staff Member and BSSM alumnus), and Christeena Kale (SoCalSSM Director). We invited these leaders to share because it is so valuable to learn from those who have developed thriving and unique school environments! Likewise, we want you to feel empowered to be your own unique expression in the body of Christ.

As these leaders shared, we were reminded of the power of love and belief in a school environment. Don’t underestimate the impact you can have on the lives of your students! When you choose to radically support the expression of their unique destinies, their greatest potential can be unlocked. As a result, the world around them is forever changed.
