BSSM Valparaiso

Bethel Valparaiso School of Supernatural Ministry is founded on the truth that God loves people, that Jesus gave his life so that we can live in spiritual authority on earth, and that we have a responsibility to share God’s love.

What is BSSM?

BSSM Valparaiso is equipping revivalists, who passionately love God and people, to carry out transformation in their God-given spheres of influence. Students are equipped to walk in the gifts of the Spirit, understand their identity in Christ, and empower them to follow Jesus as He moves powerfully on the earth today.

At BSSM Valparaiso, we believe that we owe the world an encounter with God. It is our mission to train and equip students to reveal God’s glory wherever they go. To accomplish this, we use weekly online video teaching out of BSSM in Redding, CA. Additionally, we use weekly in-person, activation-based classes to create an environment where our students can personally discover their identity in Christ, grow in intimacy with the Father, and continue in the ministry style of Jesus.

BSSM Valparaiso FAQ

What does the schedule look like? What’s the time commitment?

BSSM Valparaiso’s in-person class will meet on Wednesday evenings at a location to be determined. We have some families with children and are looking into childcare options for Wednesday evenings.
Revival groups are scheduled to meet on Friday evenings, twice a month at the church.
The weekly online work should be very manageable. On average, there will be a teaching video of 45 minutes to an hour. After the video, there are typically 3-5 homework questions and 1-3 activation questions. There will often be suggested reading for the week as well. The goal is to keep homework around 2.5 hrs or less per week. In order for this to succeed it has to be manageable for people who work full-time jobs. So, if the workload appears to be overwhelming, we’ll adjust accordingly either on an individual basis or with the group.

What are the subjects covered in the school?

We are starting with Biblical Foundations in the Fall of 2020. Biblical Foundation is a collection of 27 classes taught by a handful of BSSM teachers. We’ll be specifically focusing on lessons from Dan Farrelly, Leslie Crandall, and Kevin Dedmon. These lessons are geared towards establishing an in-depth scripture based knowledge of topics we know about, but perhaps are not currently walking in full, life-changing revelation.

Some of the classes or series on our agenda:
The Holy Spirit: power, presence, and authority
God: defining the undefinable
Supernatural healing: God’s will and our authority
Sanctification: developing character and desire for righteousness
Levels of meaning in scripture
Translations of the Bible

What do the Wednesday night in-person classes look like?

The Wednesday night classes will include a short time of worship, teaching, and a time of activation.

What are the Friday night revival groups?

Friday night revival groups will be a time to build community, discuss and impart core values, and activate each other in personal revival.
