FIVE FOLD DISTINCTIONS

The academic instruction at DSSM is distinctive as it is taught by apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers, through the elders of the body. You will learn to read with understanding then do what the Bible says. You will learn to walk consciously in His presence, practice the secret place, be constantly in prayer, follow the initiative of heaven. As these are established, then witness the lost, heal the sick, prophesy, preach, pray, cast out demons, and much more in power—doing what the Father is doing in every moment.
