Raising up leaders and creatives for Kingdom purposes.
To equip, empower, and release spirit-filled leaders and creatives into our city, nation, and world.
Tehillah Ministry School is a discipleship program open to all who want to grow in Christ and desire hands-on ministry training. Here at Tehillah Ministry School we not only offer the academic side of post-secondary education through our partnership with Vanguard College, but we focus on developing our personal relationships with God and learning leadership skills that will last a lifetime.
First Assembly Church, the home of Tehillah Ministry School, has a deep heritage of raising up leaders. This is done through teaching and hands-on experience. Our vision is to raise up spirit-filled leaders and release them into the call that is on their lives. Developing intimacy with God is our greatest focus. We do this through a weekly schedule that prioritizes worship, prayer, and studying scripture. We also have leaders that take the time to invest into students individually.
Tehillah Ministry School participants will have the opportunity to learn and grow through involvement in three main areas: tuesday night classes, internship programs at their local church or in a business, and Tehillah Monday gathering.
The classes offered will teach theologically sound doctrine. Participation in classes is a part of the Tehillah Ministry School program. Registration for individual classes is open to the public. If you would like to attend a class you can register independently for each subject course.
Christoformity: Spiritual Formation in the Image of Christ
… we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image… (2 Corinthians 3:18) … until Christ is formed in you… (Galatians 4:19)
Many of us come to faith in Christ because we recognize some aspect of our human lack: our lack of meaning, our sense of futility, our need for internal order and freedom from fear, or guilt, or shame. For many of us, salvation is conceptualized as freedom from the things that threaten to undo us. But what if salvation is more profoundly about a freedom for what God has in mind for us? What if our salvation is more like an invitation to a journey of becoming — a journey into personal growth, maturity, and God-given identity?
In this course, we want to see the ways that we can be formed, conformed, and transformed into vibrant and alive human persons. We want to learn how to respond to the call to be more like Jesus, while we also become our own unique one-of-a-kind selves. By paying attention to what Jesus says and does, how he lives and thinks, we discover freedom’s purpose. This is spiritual formation. This is Christoformity.
Teacher: Rev. Robert Osborne (MCS)

The Leadership track of Tehillah Ministry School is designed to equip believers as leaders for their calling to business, the arts, the church, in their family, in education, or in missions. This track will focus on specific topics such as: intimacy with God, the character of God, effective communication, business and career ministry, spiritual gifts and their practice, and more.
Time: Tuesday - 7:30pm to 8:30pm.
During the internship phase students will learn practical ministry skills and be developed by a leader. They will have placements in local churches and businesses. It will be the responsibility of the students to submit their requests for approval to the Tehillah Ministry School staff who will facilitate the options.

We continue to grow deeper through friendship, prayer, worship and inspired teaching every Monday.
