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 the Sanctuary plan. 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?
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 the righteousness of Christ are the ways we 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 encourage each other to follow Christ in public and in private, making this the hallmark of our efforts in carrying the work of the gospel forward .
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.
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 fieldwork.
Natural Healing Sciences 1 & 2
These courses are 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 exercises 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. What is “true medical missionary work”? Is it even relevant? We will tackle these questions and many more.
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.
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.
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.
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 order to reach the hearts of men and women in today’s society, 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, and 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 commercial and evangelistic settings. You’ll cover topics like 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.
