Jesus was the greatest influencer the world has ever encountered! As His children ambassadors, we are called to influence those around us in the same way He did: by loving and serving humanity. We are called to shine with the favor of His face so that individuals, cities, and nations can encounter His goodness.
In this hour, God is using schools of supernatural ministry to awaken generations of believers to the reality of the King and His kingdom! We believe that by equipping men and women to walk in the love and power of the Holy Spirit, the kingdom of “righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit” will be fully revealed upon the earth (Romans 14:17).
Our BSSM School Planting team is thrilled that you are interested in starting a school that raises up revivalists who transform culture. Before you begin building your school, we want to encourage you to discover the unique vision your school is called to pursue! As you continue reading, it is our prayer that you would embrace your unique identity as a leader and uncover the heavenly blueprint God has fashioned for your community.
There Is No Place the Kingdom Cannot Reach
As a school leader, God wants to tap into all the gifts, strengths, and dreams that make you uniquely you. You’re not meant to be a replica of another leader; the world needs you to be you! We encourage you to build your school with the revelation of who God has made you to be. When you walk in this confidence, you will be able to establish the unique identity of your school community.
Remember, your school doesn’t have to look the same as BSSM or any other school out there. God might invite you to pioneer and build something that has never been done before, touching a geographical region or sphere of society that has not yet experienced revival.
For example, there are testimonies of lives being dramatically transformed while attending a supernatural school inside a prison! Others have designed schools that are teaching kingdom principles to government leaders. We are in awe that God is anointing leaders to train up revivalists in such a variety of places. There truly is no place that the kingdom cannot reach!
So who are you called to influence? What places do you have a passion to see transformed? What prophetic words have you received? Be led by His Spirit! He will guide you every step of the way as you build out of the specific dreams He has placed in Your heart.
If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It
One of the world’s greatest imagineers, Walt Disney, once said, “If you can dream it, you can do it.” Disney was able to create the fantasy world we can experience at his theme park simply because he could imagine it. He was able to fashion plans to fulfill his vision because it was a reality in his imagination.
Disney never saw the grand opening of Disney World. However, at the theme park’s official opening, Disney’s brother, Roy, shared a profound statement. When someone came up to Roy and said, “It’s too bad Walt couldn’t be here to see this,” Roy responded by saying, “He did see this, and that’s why you can see it today.”
A vision that expands the kingdom is formed through the eye of an individual whose imagination is partnered with God. Marked by divine wisdom, such vision unlocks the plans of heaven to infiltrate the earth. Kris Vallotton once said,
“As human beings, we reach our highest potential when we harness the power of our imagination to birth the realities and purposes of God for us and for the world.”
We encourage you to capture a vision for your school by spending time in God’s presence and allowing your imagination to dream with Him. Dream about your school’s future knowing that there are no limitations to what God is able to do in your city, nation, and beyond. Tap into the great plans He has for your students by envisioning your school’s ideal future. You will be amazed when you do.
Imagine your school is fully up and running: your leadership team is assembled, you are meeting in the perfect venue, and you are seeing tremendous fruit in the lives of students. Envision that your school is moving in its unique purpose and answer the following questions.
In the ideal future of your school…
- What do you see?
- What do you hear?
- What do you feel?
- Whom has your school impacted?
- How do they feel?
- What spheres of influence and/or regions of the world have been transformed?
- How has the kingdom been expanded?
- What legacy is your school leaving for future generations?
After imagining your school’s ideal future, we encourage you to create a vision statement for your school based on these answers. Work together, share what you create with students.
This is so good! Thanks for sharing. I have just had my dreams in my head and never wrote them down…i am encouraged by this.
Hi Edla, thanks for your comment! We are excited to hear about your future plans for a school. If you have any questions or need any help, feel free to email us at email@example.com
For the first time I actually envisioned my school. I can see it, feel it, expect it! Just doing the above mentioned exercise has given me a name for this school.
You’re welcome, Sacara! We are excited for you and can’t wait to see your vision come to pass! Blessings 🙂
We are beginning to imagine our school again after taking off 2020. This is helping to imagine the school God has in His heart for our region and city. And the specific impact He is calling for. God bless!
