SPREADING THE GOSPEL
The third year student ministry team is comprised of students who have shown themselves approved and have answered the call to put into practical action their studies at Blue Ridge Chapel School of the Prophets. At the invitation of ministries throughout the United States and abroad, students minister the life of the Word of God through preaching, music, one-on-one ministry to individual needs, witnessing and practical helps. It is an opportunity to bless others and a time of training and development in their own lives and ministries.
This course teaches practical and spiritual principals that are needed in understanding the requirements and responsibilities that God expects of leaders. It covers practical application of leadership in employment, marriage, the Christian life, and the church. The purpose of this class is to prepare students for many types of leadership they may face in their lives. They are taught to understand the responsibility that comes with leadership, how to be accountable, and submit to others.
PRINCIPALS OF RIGHEOUSNESS
This course is an in-depth study of righteousness from the scriptures. Personal application is made to the individual students Christian walk. Each student will be required to submit a treatise of righteousness.
"The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified."

"During my third year, I observed and experienced first hand the principle of receiving only as much as you surrender. I saw people desperately needy for Jesus: some fettered and some free, some haughty and some humble, some knowing their need and some confident in themselves, some doing something about it and some satisfied to sit idle. Then I saw myself. God's hand dropped out of heaven and rested upon my heart and posed me the question, "What about you?' I have never been the same since.
Third year was a time of refinement and refreshment from the Holy Spirit as I surrendered and yielded to his dealings. Also, it was a time to break out of my comfort zone, to step out and to let the river flow!
God used the third year experience to bring full definition to the vital value of true submission. The Lord showed me that it is only when you have made submission a lifestyle, will you experience true peace in life, find safety from the subtle snares of the enemy, and more importantly, obtain the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."
