SOA Mission and Values

Our Mission:

To equip and deploy revivalists who passionately pursue world-wide transformation in their God given spheres of influence. Students are trained 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.
The school is designed to equip students not just to minister in the gifts of the Spirit but to live a supernatural lifestyle. You experience life-changing revelation about yourself and the world around you as you become aware of the Kingdom within you and are encouraged to be naturally supernatural by bringing heaven to earth wherever you go. We believe Jesus meant it when He taught us to pray “Your Kingdom come…on earth as it is in Heaven.”

revivalist: (n) A believer who is focused and passionate, willing to pay any price to live in community, purity and power because they are loved by God, whose manifest presence transforms lives and cultures.

Our Values:

*Revival Lifestyle School of Awakening chooses to align with Bethel’s Core Values*

A Culture of Love

We will always strive to love you and deal with you out of love.
Jesus said love your neighbor as you love yourself. It is very important for you to love yourself, receive God’s love and receive our love.
We expect you to keep love at the center of all that you are and all that you do.

An Empowering Versus a Controlling Culture

This means we will work hard to call out your internal motivation and self-control to empower you to reach your full potential.
An empowering culture has honor and respect as its core value.
A controlling culture means you are motivated externally by the fear of others.
A controlling culture has fear and punishment as its core value.

Ownership

You will never reach your full potential until you take responsibility for your own personal greatness.
As long as you merely perform so that you don’t get in trouble you haven’t taken responsibility for your own life.
We will never work harder to solve your problems than you do.
We will solve problems with you, but not for you.

Accountability

We expect you to honestly be transparent about your life to your overseers when asked.
Learn to trust someone more than you trust yourself.

Risk

Faith can be spelled “R-I-S-K.”
If you want to grow, you must take a risk. If you don’t fail once in a while, you are not taking enough risks (obviously we are not talking of moral or character failures).
You must fail some at SOA, or you shouldn’t graduate (again, not moral or character failures).
When you are asked to do some exploit by the leadership, we strongly prefer you don’t decline.

Honor

Life flows from honor. We have been called to a rectangular table; not a round table where all have an equal voice. There are levels of honor in the Kingdom. Take the low spot like James says and let the host move you up.
Always deal with God, your leaders, yourself and each other with honor and respect. Don’t choose your behavior out of fear that you will be punished. Do the right things because you don’t want to
disappoint God, your leaders and yourself.

Confrontation

We have a confrontational culture. If you do something that we think needs to be adjusted, we will talk to you about it. If any leader in our environment does something that you think needs adjusted, you are invited to go to them privately and talk to them. Don’t talk to others about an issue until you have first talked to the person that offended you. If this does not go well you may then request to speak to them with their supervisor.

Supernatural Power

You are in a culture that expects the supernatural to happen often. You will find yourself in situations where if God doesn’t do a miracle, it won’t work out right. These are the times to press in and pray.
You will be expected to walk in the supernatural power of God. Get used to it.

Royalty

You are royalty, princes and princesses of the King.
You are not paupers. Learn to think and live out of your new identity.

Honesty

We expect you to be honest no matter what it cost you.
Trust is built on honesty and integrity.
Telling half-truths, cheating or lying destroys trust.
Trust is the foundation of all good relationships.

Mind of Christ

As a Christian you have the mind of Christ. We want to teach you how to think more than what to think.
Therefore, you have permission to use your mind while you are here
