GPS is an 8-month discipleship school dedicated to equipping people to discover their specific God-given call to transform society through each of the Mountains of Influence. Students will hear from leading experts as they explore each of the mountains of society, beginning with the Mountain of the Lord (Isaiah 2:2) and continuing with the other 7 mountains: arts & entertainment, business, education, family, government, media and religion.
The Mountains are Calling!
God is inviting His people to dream big, to act big, and to build big. It won't be through cookie-cutter methods, but through creative Kingdom solutions. There are new dimensions of innovation and creativity God is releasing now, and you get to be a part of it.
For too long, Christianity has been defined by a limited view of church. As a result, Believers have built walls around their lives, trying to keep culture out of the church; unfortunately, this has resulted in keeping the church out of culture. This was never Jesus' design for your life! Before the church was instituted as a place that people "came to," Jesus established it through His disciples and commissioned them to go into all the world, transforming every area of society. The “Mountains of Influence” are what make up society, and it is imperative for the Kingdom of God (Mountain of the Lord) to impact each of them: arts & entertainment, business, education, family, government, media and religion.
God is raising up His people in the Mountains of Influence to reshape culture. Revival will look different from what we’ve seen in the past. It will take place in board rooms and offices, in classrooms and on school boards, through a renaissance movement in arts and entertainment, through voices of truth in media, through business innovation, through strong family values, through government officials with an unwavering resolve for righteousness and justice, and through those called to full time vocational ministry with a mandate to “equip the saints for work of the ministry,” leading the way in discipling nations.
Now is the time for you to find your voice and your place of influence. Come discover the course of your destiny and how God has called you to transform society!
What to Expect
Each of the 8 months of GPS (Global Presence School) will be dedicated to exploring each Mountain of Influence, beginning with the Mountain of the Lord (Isaiah 2:2) and continuing with the other 7 mountains: arts & entertainment, business, education, family, government, media and religion.
At GPS, we will help you discover your unique gifts and talents, and identify the specific area(s) of influence to which God has called you. You will learn to live powerfully from your identity as a son/daughter of God, and to cultivate a lifestyle of worship. You will be strengthened and encouraged in the prophetic, growing in your ability to hear God’s voice, and to discern Kingdom solutions for current cultural issues. You will see ministry differently - that regardless of your sphere of influence, all Believers are called to full-time ministry.
Classroom Instruction & Hands-on Experience In addition to our outstanding instructors, you will learn from guest speakers who are leading voices in each of the Mountains of Influence.
You will have opportunities to take class trips to places directly related to the Mountain of Influence being studied (e.g. Hollywood for arts & entertainment; Washington D.C. for government; Dallas/Fort Worth for business).

“Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god. They will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God their Savior. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, God of Jacob.” Psalm 24:3-6 NIV
