Raising support

Awesome! You are reading this page because you believe God may be calling you to apply for one of our courses! Firstly we are very excited that you may be joining us! I imagine you will now be sitting down to count the cost if you haven’t already. To help you with your planning we have put together a few of our student testimonies, some Bible verses and some fundraising ideas (and stewardship information for full time students).
May we encourage you that God is faithful. He always equips us with all that we need to carry out His purposes. If He has called you to join the School He will provide. We have had students who at first thought there was no way they could afford the fees but went on to see God’s amazing provision. Some have given up their daytime jobs or cut down on working hours to do Full-Time School and God has provided beyond their expectations!

We hope these recent testimonies will encourage you in your trust for God’s provision:

“My wife and I both began the Full Time Course in October 2016 having given up full time jobs as we believe that God told us to trust Him and He will provide. In fact, He told us that He would bless us beyond our finances!  Well, He hasn’t let us down! We have received one off gifts from friends, and anonymously, our travel expenses have been covered by a monthly sponsorship. Our part time wages have also exceeded expectations! We truly have been blessed. Our expectations of God’s provision are increasing almost daily!”

“I really wanted to do Part Time School but didn’t feel I could justify spending my savings on myself and not my kids. I asked the Lord and said if He wanted me to go, He would need to show me! Then, at The Pursuit Conference I bumped into someone from LSSM who said that if I wanted to do Part Time School it was fully paid for! So awesome! It confirmed to me the deep way the Lord has been working in me, through meeting others who have the same passion. I am now being stretched to press in further and deeper as a normal way of life. I am so grateful and excited for all God is going to do!”

“My journey to School has been an amazing one! It all started when I attended an LSSM Firestarter’s Course early in 2016. I received words of prophecy that God would provide in the area of finances. I knew I needed to trust in this area as others were also speaking into my life a similar message! I wrote all these things down. Then, following a ministry trip to the Netherlands with LSSM someone from that country offered to sponsor me to do the Full Time Course 2016/17! So here I am, learning so much and Jesus’ love is changing me. I am becoming more healed so Jesus’ love can flow out in truth, love and power…. ..and I am just learning to sit with Him. Awesome!”

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you
Matthew 6:33 ESV

Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established
Proverbs 16:3 ESV

John answered, “A person cannot receive even one thing unless it is given him from heaven.”
John 3:27 ESV

Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.
Malachi 3:10 ESV

You are a missionary to your community and beyond.
Many of us can feel uneasy fundraising for ourselves. However, we believe that when you join the School, and embark on your journey with one of our courses, your life will be so affected that those around you will benefit. You are already an amazing asset to the Body of Christ, yet early on in the course you will soon be learning and growing so much that the local church you attend will benefit immensely. Therefore we encourage you to consider fundraising amongst friends or ask your church to support you. Not only will you be blessed but it also gives other people the privilege and opportunity to support you and they in turn will be blessed:
Believers are called to set their hope on God who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. We are called to be rich in good works and to be generous and ready to share (1 Tim 6:17-19). It is better to give than receive and using the gifts we receive we serve one another (1 Peter 4:10). And of course, we reap what we sow so someone may like the opportunity to sow into you (2 Cor 9:6-7)!
We are to utilise and manage all the resources God provides for the glory of God and the increase of His Kingdom. You are so valuable that you are worth dying for. You deserve to have people responsible for overseeing and protecting you as you seek to grow in Kingdom purposes for the sake of His glory.
For full Time Students only
May we encourage you to consider stewardship.org to help with your fundraising. You would be able to set up an account where people can pay in directly and, if appropriate, you would also receive gift aid on their contributions! Check their website out.
If after prayerful consideration you decide this is not your time to join the School perhaps you would consider sponsoring a student so that if you are in a financial position to do so someone else may benefit from one of the courses. Support a Student.
We bless you in your decision making and look forward to celebrating you in person if we are to be blessed in you coming to join us!
