TEKOA CLASSES

Sanctuary Studies 1 & 2

Discover God’s plan of salvation in a deeper way. Become more able to instruct
others using the most practical and dynamic outline of that plan, the Sanctuary. This theme, so often misunderstood, remains central to our faith. How does God view humanity? What role do we have to play, if any, in this saving relationship? Is this subject still relevant?

Discipleship

We must be continually reminded that, “Obedience--the service and allegiance of love--is the true sign of discipleship” (SC 60). Supreme love for God and man by the indwelling Spirit of God, and faith in righteousness of Christ is the way by which we can reflect Christ in this perishing world. We strive to weave this
principle of true discipleship into all that we do at Tekoa. Through our interactions, mentorship, teachings, and examples, we intend to encourage each other in following Christ in public and in private; making this the hallmark of
our efforts in carrying forward the work of the gospel.

Daniel & Revelation

These prophetic books are crucial to understanding our purpose and identity as
a movement. You will learn where we have been, where we are, and where we are headed in the scope of time. Strict Biblical rules of interpretation will be utilized as missionaries seek to grapple with this most pertinent subject. Your heart will burn within you as you find your part in God’s great plan of redemption.

Personal Evangelism

Herein lies a thorough preparation of effective, intentional, and personal
soul-winners. This will be accomplished via: study and evaluation of specific methodologies and principles of personal Evangelism outlined in the Holy Bible and the writings of Ellen G. White. This will include topics such as foundational apologetics, preparing and conducting Bible studies, generating Bible study leads (cold/hot), gaining decisions, and spiritual nurture/discipleship. Theory will be coupled with practical field work.

DSC01362

Natural Healing Sciences 1 & 2

Designed to outline and ascertain the significance of the Seventh-day Adventist message of health reform as delineated in the Bible and the writings of Ellen G. White. In keeping with Christ’s methodologies of ministering to the masses as well as the individual, this class will equip you with an intelligent understanding of your human machinery and the eternal principles that govern its healthy function. The 5Core Fitness program will also be employed to furnish you with a structured battery of well-balanced exercise while at the same time preparing you to instruct others. In addition, you will learn ways in which this ministry can be carried out Evangelistically via door-to-door work, health seminars, cooking schools, etc. by integrating theory with practical field work. What is “true medical missionary work”? Is it even relevant? We will tackle these questions and many more.

Ministry-of-Healing-2

Gift of Prophecy

God has given a most wonderful gift to His church. This gift is to help guide His people until the end of time. This class will explore the true biblical understanding of the gift of prophecy. We will examine the nature of the gift, the vessels of this gift, and how this gift is to be practically applied in the church and on a personal level.

Leadership in Ministry

Our world is in great need of leadership. Is leadership a position? Is leadership
something you’re born with? In this course a student will learn practically how to lead. The student missionary will be put in positions of leadership in the various branches of the work, not because they desire leadership, but because
they have demonstrated leadership qualities during their tenure as students at Tekoa. There will be class time but the majority of the time will be done practically in the mission field.

Christian Salesmanship

How do you get gospel literature into the home? How do you present health products in the community? How do you do a presentation to get your ministry funded? This course will explain the simple principles of Christian salesmanship. This is an invaluable class you must take.

City Missions

The class will prepare a student missionary to run a city mission. It will cover the many possibilities of ministry in the city and show how the Outpost Center connects with it. The city mission course has a practicum connected with it.

Church Planting

Setting up churches in dark counties takes a high level of sacrifice but also takes some serious planning and commitment. Students who enter this course will understand the strategies necessary to open and develop a successful church plant. Any student who enters this course will either lead or become a part of a church plant during the course.

Health Food Ministry

In today’s society, in order to reach the hearts of men and women, health must
become the entering wedge God designed it should be. This course is designed to train workers to use this wedge effectively with a practicum in our food factory, along with practical classes on how to develop like organizations from A to Z.

English 1 & 2

The English language is an important tool in expressing the gospel. This class will instruct in the basics of the English language. Sentence structure, verbs,
adverbs, adjectives, nouns, pronouns, etc. will all be covered. Preaching, writing, editing all are dependent upon good English. There will be practical applications of this skill during this class in the writing of articles, small books, editing of books and websites, and much more.

Business Principles & Methods

We will learn the importance of the proper business management of your business/ministry for the purpose of being self-supporting in a commercial, as well as evangelistic setting. Covering things such as Getting Started, Generating Business/Interest, Business Structure, Cost, Cycles, Marketing, and what the overall spiritual purpose of having a business is. We will also discuss some of the various lines of business/ministry that may be entered into for the purpose of soul saving and self-sustenance.

Home Leadership

All missionaries come from a home and will return to a home after their training. For this reason it is imperative that they learn to be leaders in the home, so they may then know how to efficiently work in other fields. In this course, missionaries will learn principles on proper courtship from an inspired perspective, the biblical roles of Father and Mother, Husband and Wife, God’s original plan for the home, practical ways to prepare to start a home, home finance, budgeting, and most importantly, how to Evangelize those of your own
household.

How to Study the Bible

This course helps the missionaries to understand why we need to study the bible,
the theme of the bible, as well as the inspired methods of how to look at a passage of scripture and understand what the text is saying without adding or taking away.

The Science of Prayer & Communion

Communion between Christ and His Father, was the key of success in Jesus’ journey on earth against the temptations of the world. We will study this science so that we too may know how to overcome the wiles of the devil. In this class the missionaries will learn: What is prayer, how does it work, how to know the difference between the prayer of faith and the prayer of presumption, false forms of prayer and mediation, inspired structure for prayer, and much more.

Dress and Adornment

Before we speak a word we are already judged by our style of dress. Therefore,
since our clothes are living preachers, we must make sure that we are giving the right message to the beholder. This class will instruct the missionaries along the lines of: Dress and health, dress and modesty, appropriate styles of fashions that inspiration endorses, the role of artificial adornment and colorful cosmetics, the connection between dress and salvation, and much more.

Nutrition

Considering that food is a medicine “Hippocrates”, in this class we will study food science and its role upon the human body. Missionaries will learn the progressive role between diet and disease, how diet affects the mind, as well as the medicinal properties in food and the best means of its preparation.

Preaching 101

Preaching is one of the most recognized mediums God has used to make His way known upon the earth and confound its wisdom. You will learn the basic principles of sermon preparation, delivery, and most importantly, the heart preparation needed in order to competently proclaim the good news of salvation to a dying world

Church History

Our church has been directed by God. In this course you will see the course of God’s church through the centuries and the development of God’s end-time people who are to proclaim the end-time message. We will look carefully at such predecessors as James White, William Miller, Joseph Bates, Annie Smith, and a host of others. We will focus on the prophetic gift as manifested through Ellen G. White. “We have nothing to fear for the future except as we shall forget the way the Lord has led us, and His teaching in our past history.” TM 31

Food Cultivation & Preservation

These are modules designed to educate an individual in the basic science and practice of seasonal agriculture. Learn how to live sustainably and tap into local produce networks. Also develop hands-on knowledge in preserving fresh fruits and vegetables for long-term storage and how to enjoy them even in the winter months.

Hydrotherapy, Massage, and Natural Remedies

This class is designed to enable students to combat disease in varied forms by utilizing simple methods. Each student is expected to be able to practically apply hydrotherapy, basic massage, and natural remedies in medical missionary service.

Health Cookery

We are counseled that “cooking is no mean science.” It is something to be learned by all. It is part and parcel of gospel medical missionary Evangelism. In the class you will learn the basic elements of healthful cookery. You will learn how to prepare healthful, palatable, attractive, and simple food. You will learn the difference between veganism and health reform and how to use cooking as a means of connecting people with Christ in your home and in your community.

Sacred Music & Worship

In light of the emphasis on worship that we find in the book of Revelation, it is important that those who are living at the end of time have an intelligent understanding of what constitutes true worship. In chapters 13 and 14 of Revelation, we find that worship will be the central issue in the final moments of earth’s history. In this course, we will be taking a look at praise and worship within the context of the Three Angels’ Messages. The goal of the course is to obtain an in depth understanding of: The biblical principles of true worship, the spiritual effects of true and false worship and the role that false worship, will play in influencing individuals to receive the mark of the beast.

First-Aid and CPR

Master the ability to provide competent care in emergency situations. Sometimes rapid response is needed and here is where you’ll learn the ABC’s of first-aid. Learn how to use whatever may be available around you. Simple household items and things found in nature can help when other help is too far away. Basic survival and wilderness training may be covered as well.
