Training and Schooling


There is a lot of training out there for those heading out on short term mission trips and those living overseas. This list will focus mainly on schools with a mission’s emphasis. We will add more information on Training & Schools as we research & connect in more detail.



We are all called to be missionaries of the peace of God


You have a purpose. Finding and fulfilling your purpose is the greatest adventure you can have in this life, and should be a top priority for every Christian. Nothing is more exciting than the Christian life, and few things are more boring than mere religion. You are called to have life and to have it in abundance. The vision of MorningStar University is to help equip you to know and fulfill your highest purpose in life.

Every Christian has a calling and a mission. Most are called to fulfill these in everyday situations and places, such as business, the arts, government, media, the military, or other vocations, as well as in missions or the church. MSU is designed to help every student find and be prepared for their unique calling and to walk “the path of the righteous,” which we are promised “shines brighter and brighter until the full day” (see Proverbs 4:18). Therefore, your life should be one of increasing light and clarity if you remain on the right path. Our goal is to help you become firmly established on that path.

We are told in John 10 that the Lord’s sheep know His voice, and they follow Him because they know His voice. The path of the righteous is to follow our King and to do His will. Therefore, knowing the voice of the Lord is basic to our instruction.


If this is your basic devotion, you will fit well at MSU, and we would love to have you join us. I think you will find that all of our courses are practical, but they will also inspire you to fulfill the ultimate purpose of every human being—to love God above all else, and by this, to love others because God is love. We want you to love your time at MSU, but even more so, our goal is to see you love Him more. Doctrines and principles are important and can help us, but only those who are in love will never quit. You are called first and foremost to love God, and that too is our highest purpose.

In His service,

Master’s Program

MorningStar University’s Masters in Leadership Ministry degree program is a 12 month, or three-term, weekend immersion program. It was created for those who desire to take their leadership skills to an exponential level in order to fulfill their destiny in the sphere of influence to which they are called. Students are educated in a historical and cultural worldview, a prophetic perspective, and in the means of articulation through media to develop a solid foundation for effective leadership in our ever-changing world.

Leadership SchoolMSU’s

Special Forces (SF) program is an intense leadership training course designed to prepare students physically, mentally, and spiritually to discover and walk in their calling. The program’s ultimate goal is to produce team focused leaders with the character and resilience to make a lasting impact in whatever sphere of influence they are called to.  This program was established in 2005 by Rick Joyner, who was inspired by his association with the elite U.S. Delta Force and his desire to see the church raised to a similar standard. MSU’s Special Forces program is unique in the world of ministry schools because of its combination of classroom teaching with experiential training in real world situations. Through this program, students are exposed to a variety of demanding personal and leadership challenges. Every month, SF students travel into the wilderness where they are taught survival skills, leadership skills, and spiritual principles while completing difficult objectives. The course is designed to push students beyond their perceived limits and into their full potential. 

Transformational Leadership

Our main purpose at MSU is to raise up high-impact leaders and this Transformational leadership program is where it all happens. In this program our students will learn from world renowned leaders in an interactive and engaging classroom atmosphere that also includes classes on essential theology, spiritual training, current world events and more.

School of Worship

Over the years MSU has produced many of the great worship leaders that we all know about today. In this elective our professional instructors bring decades of music, worship, and recording industry experience to teach and disciple young worship leaders and musicians into a greater level of skill with their instrument and the true heart of worship in their spirit.



Founded in 2006 by Randy Clark, Global School of Supernatural Ministry (GSSM) offers students three program options: On-site, Online and Summer Intensive. After completing their training, students will be equipped to step into a variety of arenas such as missions, arts, marketplace, pastoral ministry, inner healing, prophetic and community leadership.

GSSM brings experienced, anointed, gifted and relevant teachers for each core training themes. These teachers are brought in from around the world to invest and impart into every student, preparing them to live out a supernatural lifestyle and impact their world with Kingdom transformation.

Taking a proven, holistic approach to missionary training and preparation, GSSM purposely focuses on integral ministry training: head (formal, classroom, theory), heart (informal, community, spiritual), and hands (non-formal, on-the-job, practical). By doing so, students are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and character necessary to be successful serving in missions.


YWAM- University of the Nations

Youth With A Mission (Also known as YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”)began in 1960 and is a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world and united in a common purpose to know God and to make Him known.

YWAM’s University of the Nations (U of N) operates in 650 locations in 160 countries, providing programs in approximately 100 languages around the world. The U of N is committed to teach and develop men and women spiritually, culturally, intellectually and professionally.

As a student in the U of N, you are nurtured as a whole person. You learn in a discipling environment where growth in character and walking in the ways of the Lord are fundamental. You study only one subject at a time in a 12-week modular system, each course approached from a Christian perspective.

The U of N aims to equip students to serve in all spheres of society and in all nations. The goal of the U of N is to teach students how to apply biblical truth practically and to fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).

The core program in the U of N is the Discipleship Training School (DTS) which is required for all other U of N courses.

DTS – Discipleship Training School

The Discipleship Training School (YWAM DTS) is a full-time program and lasts five or six months. It consists of two parts: lecture phase and outreach phase. In the lecture phase, you will learn more about God and His world. You’ll learn not only from lectures but also from community living and practical training. The outreach phase focuses on applying what you learned in the classroom through an intense, cross-cultural experience.

You can apply for the DTS at over 200 YWAM locations all over the world. Many offer a special focus on a specific interest, an area of service, or a nation. The “Crossroads” (YWAM CDTS) or “All Ages” DTS meets the needs of students over 30, such as second-career people or families with children.  DTS is the prerequisite for not only becoming YWAM staff, but also for YWAM’s second-level training.


Global Frontier Missions:

Global Frontier Missions (GFM) is an international, 501(c)(3) non-denominational Christian missionary mobilization and training agency. Incorporated in the state of Virginia in the year 2000 and later in the state of Georgia in 2009 they have a board of directors, a global leadership team made of representatives from all of our locations that provide most of the strategic direction for the organization as well as a leadership teams at the local level that oversee each location.

Training: Going overseas is a major life change for many people in the Western world. There is a significant need for long-term workers to reach the unreached. Through GFM’s Missionary Training School, people get a taste of missions work firsthand by learning new languages, breaking cross-cultural barriers, and building relationships with internationals…all on American (or Australian!) soil.

Mobilizing, GFM hosts short-term mission trips, speak at mission’s seminars, organize conferences, teach Perspectives courses, and get involved in local churches to cast vision for reaching the unreached.

Multiplying: GFM engages in disciple making and church planting among the local internationals with the hope of seeing them evangelized and discipled to the point that they can go back and reach their own people.
