Forerunner School of Ministry – Chinese Program
Come and Study in Chinese
The Forerunner School of Ministry – Chinese Program (FSM Chinese) is now enrolling students for August 2014.
In 2013, International House of Prayer University started a Chinese program to serve Chinese-speaking believers and make it easier for them to come here and receive training in the Word of God and prayer.
We believe the Lord is raising up wholehearted lovers of God among the Chinese. About thirty years ago, Mike Bickle received some prophetic words from the Lord that were to shape his ministry. The Lord told Mike that he would be involved with a young adult worship and prayer movement, that they would pray for the salvation of Israel, and that it would be dynamically related to Asia.
The Chinese church carries great conviction with regard to prayer and the Back to Jerusalem movement; we believe they will take great leadership in the earth in the coming decades. Therefore we are focused on serving the Chinese believers who are saying yes to the grace of God to pray and get involved in the global prayer, worship, and missions movement that the Holy Spirit is raising up.
We invite Chinese believers to come for biblical training, to encounter God in His Word in an environment of 24/7 worship and prayer, and to learn more about ministering in the power of the Holy Spirit and hearing His voice.
The schedule includes 24 hours in the prayer room every week, ministry experience, fellowship, and Bible teaching in the classroom on many subjects, including intimacy with God, prayer and worship, the end times, God’s purposes for Israel, and His plan for the rising prayer, worship, and missions movement. Our desire is for students to gain a biblical view of what the Lord is doing in our generation.
Chinese students who have already taken this program testify to the Lord’s transforming power in their lives. By His grace, many have received spiritual breakthrough in their lives and relationship with God, whether they are a full-time pastor, a worship leader, or a layperson in the Church.
We currently offer a one-year program (August–May) and will extend to four years of study at a later time. This training in Chinese includes active participation in our All Nations Prayer Room, where a schedule of prayer with worship meetings operates in Chinese and eight other languages.
All IHOPU students embrace in-depth biblical training in the context of a thriving missions base fueled by 24/7 prayer with worship. As a result, theological education obtained in the classroom is connected to intimacy with Jesus and practical service and outreach, including works of justice and acts of compassion. Our goal is to equip believers to win the lost, heal the sick, plant churches and houses of prayer, and seek to impact all areas of society, throughout the earth.
