Who Are We?
Our ministry school was launched by Lighthouse, which is a church planting ministry in Cape Breton. As well, it runs two Youth Centres called Undercurrent in Glace Bay and Sydney. The ministry was started by David Sawler and a great team of leaders thirteen years ago. The ministry school is for youth and young adults of all denominations between the ages of 18-25.
What Are We?
We are Church Starters and we want to inspire, involve, and equip others to go into unreached communities to start new communities of faith. Every student will be involved with ministry with several church plants, all at different stages of development.
We believe in Entrepreneurial Faith Filled Leadership that dreams, risks, and becomes light and hope in every area. Our students will be challenged to develop self starting skills to help them take the gospel wherever God calls them in the future.
We believe in life transforming Discipleship. Our students will be taken on a journey of spiritual growth through times of worship, prayer, teaching, and becoming involved with discipling others. We want to see our students gain the desire and skills to serve others and pour into the lives of those around them.
We have a focus on Youth Ministry. First, we believe that Jesus purposely choose a group of young people, known as the disciples, to pour His life into and send to change the world. Our students will be invested in by a great ministry team who believes God is calling them to live out this adventure. Secondly, we want to involve our students in our Undercurrent youth ministry and youth centres which work with hundreds of youth on a weekly basis.
We are Worshippers. Cape Breton has a rich history based in music and the arts. As part of every student’s journey, will be engage in various expressions of worship. On a weekly basis students will have opportunities to take part in worship services, as well as, several worship intensives with many of Cape Breton’s worship leaders.
