The School of Commission (SOC) is a teaching ministry of the Lord's Sanctuary Church, committed to (i) equipping the saints for the work of ministry for the edifying of the Body of Christ (Ephesians 4 vs 11 - 12) – thus effectively making fishers of men by the Holy Spirit. This school was launched in September of 2005, after God by the Holy Ghost impressed upon the heart of Pastor Stanley Nevera to start the school. Since then, we have seen the Spirit of God equipping and edifying the saints through ministration of the anointed word of God communicated by the lecturers at SOC. The school is interdenominational and open to anyone with a hunger for the word of God as well as for the work of ministry, at any level. God has so blessed us with a number of highly qualified and anointed ministers of the word, with strong anointing in the teaching gift.
Compelled by the divine commission on SOC to equip and prepare the saints for service, the School presently runs a programme that is split into two parts namely the Basic Ministry Essentials (BME) course and the Applied Ministry Essentials (AME) course. After completion of the full programme, i.e., BME + AME, our students are then commissioned for service. This document describes the former course (BME) and it is hoped that after reading through this curriculum, the reader will not only know what BME is all about, but that s/he may also consider enrolling in this course. May God bless you richly in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!!!
