Celebration’s School of Supernatural Ministry
Featuring the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry DVD Curriculum Celebration School of Supernatural Ministry (CSSM) is committed to the truth that God loves people, gave Himself for them and has given His Church supernatural power to bring individuals and nations into wholeness. The school emphasizes that believers need to return to the ministry of signs and wonders—to minister in love, truth and the power of God. The mission of CSSM is to equip and deploy revivalists who passionately pursue worldwide transformation in their God-given spheres of influence. It is our goal to train students to continue in the ministry style of Jesus: to enjoy the presence of God, say what He is saying, and do what He is doing.
CSSM is a Holy Spirit driven ministry school where students learn how to live in the Kingdom of God and extend its borders through a supernatural lifestyle. The school is multi-generational with participants from various ages. One of Celebration’s goals is to create a culture of honor, which manifests through joining the generations and teaching every age group to value and serve one another.
The school emphasizes hands on training and experience along with academic understanding. This creates a “do and teach” culture where all of the students are expected to take risks to stretch their faith and grow in their understanding of God. CSSM believes that each verse of the Bible is an invitation into an experience with the Lord and students are challenged to live the New Testament. This produces a class environment where disciples practice the things they are being taught while instructors coach the process and all this takes place in a setting of passionate worship.
As the year progresses and the students begin to gain confidence and experience within the safety of the classroom, they are sent on outreaches into the community. These exploits include ministry to neighborhoods, after-school programs, city outreach and serving our city. When the students take their supernatural ministry into the community, it gets pretty wild and exciting! They return to share testimonies, give thanks and debrief, always cheering each other on as they share. Boldness, passion and risk are center stage in Celebration’s school. These values define our atmosphere and are manifest in worship, ministry and in relationships with each other.
The school is designed to equip students to live a supernatural lifestyle, not just minister in the gifts of the Spirit. They are encouraged to be naturally supernatural by bringing heaven to earth wherever they go. Therefore CSSM by design, does not have dorms. Instead we encourage students to live in the neighborhoods and get jobs in the local area so that they can practice bringing Jesus to the market place as a part of their learning experience. Many of our students work part-time jobs while they attend school.
Class hours are one night a week from 5:45p.m. -10:00p.m. The class hours are
learning opportunities with the instructors but they are just a small part of the learning experience. The other hours consist of learning through homework, chosen authors or from the Holy Spirit as the students read the Word, attend services, serve on ministry teams, soaking & prayer times of personal devotion, living the supernatural lifestyle in an honorable way at work, and more. CSSM is not for the faint of heart or lazy. It is an extremely fast paced season of schooling, but the training is pivotal and strategic. We believe the intensity soon translates into “becoming”; things that are at first foreign and done out of duty gradually become second nature as students move from merely echoing a message to becoming a message.

The school culture is more adept to meeting God as you “do life.” For, the school has no general restriction on dating for our single people, which is so common to ministry schools. Rather, we have chosen to teach our students how to have healthy relationships and live in purity within the community. Of course, learning without a lot of external restrictions creates a need for a high level of discipleship, personal responsibility and accountability in our students. This is accomplished through small group interaction and a covenant community which embraces honesty, transparency and confrontation.
CSSM is not for those who are looking for a place to rehab or people who are coming out of lifestyle sins. There is too much freedom in our environment for those struggling with self-control. Celebration’s school is designed to be a ministry training center where our students embrace their royal identity, learn the attributes of the Kingdom and walk in the authority and power of the King.
The academic instruction at CSSM is unique because it is taught by apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers – not by professors or theologians. This gives the teaching a kind of living perspective with five-fold distinctions. CSSM has many powerful speakers throughout the year but the primary teaching is accomplished through use of the Bethel School DVD Curriculum and from our Leadership Staff here at Celebration Church.
The students receive a great deal of instruction on evangelical Bible interpretation but they are also immersed in a revelatory culture where the Holy Spirit becomes the chief instructor and tour guide. He causes His Kingdom to come alive through the pages of the Bible. CSSM students learn how to read, understand, and “do” the Bible – how to practice His presence, to witness, heal the sick, prophesy, preach, pray, cast out demons and much more.
The CSSM students learn in large group sessions (Once a week evening sessions),
revival groups of 20-30 people, small groups of 5, and on their own. Reading on your own time is expected and is a large part of our curriculum. There are approximately 1200 pages of mandatory reading throughout the year. That works out to 5 pages of reading everyday of the 240 days from beginning to graduation. That’s on top of 2 chapters of the Word daily. So plan on reading 30–60 minutes a day minimum. That may be brand new for many of you and it is a big commitment, but it is all amazing, transforming content.
The school year extends from September through May, and each year has a specific focus in the development of the revivalist. Graduates of 1st & 2nd year may apply for 3rd year internships or be deployed into various opportunities.
Level 1 – Level 1 School of Ministry focuses on assimilating the core values of the Kingdom into the heart of the Believer and establishing God’s Royal identity in the mind of each student. The Level 1 students receive the gifts of the Spirit and learn how to walk in the power of God. The Level 1 Program takes two years to complete on a part time basis one night a week.
Students read large section of the Bible in this 2 year program along with approximately 12 additional books. Later in the program they are released as part of the ministry team in our church services and serve in our conferences, classes and house churches. They do outreach ministry each week and the entire school goes on various mission trips nationally and internationally. Students raise additional funds for these missions trips. The school hosts one retreat early in the year (included in the tuition) which is a tremendous time of building new relationship, getting to know each other and connecting with the staff.
Level 2 – Successful Level 1 graduates may apply to attend Level 2 if they believe the Lord is leading them to do so. Level 2 students take the skills and core values they have learned in Level 1 and begin to incorporate it in their calling. They choose a revival and a revivalist from history and investigate them with a view to forging similar dynamics in their own lives. They also learn leadership principles to gain understanding on how to lead people and establish the Kingdom in every realm of society.
Level 2 students have the opportunity to travel with our leaders as the ministry team. They demonstrate signs and wonders, and may sometimes train the local congregation in supernatural ministry and take them into the community to do treasure hunts (i.e. these are prophetic spontaneous encounters where Believers look for hidden treasure in the hearts of the folks of their city).
Internships – Internships provide an opportunity to experience the Kingdom culture of leadership first hand. Our program is tailored to meet both the interns calling and the ministry of the person for whom they will intern. In addition to time spent with one’s immediate leader and learning ministry by serving, it includes; individual pastoral oversight by our team, coaching, leadership training (including some sessions with our Senior Leadership team) and regular time with other interns. Internships generally center on the five-fold ministry, youth, children, worship, prayer, missions, etc. They are primarily available to those called to career ministry in the church, although those who intend to lead in other realms of society could potentially be considered.As a general rule, we prefer those who have also completed Level 2 for these internship positions because we believe the Level 1 and Level 2 program work in tandem produce higher quality leaders.
