School of Ministry

Equipping the saints for the work of the ministry

Ephesians 4:12

Our mission is to aggressively engage in making disciples of Jesus Christ here in Escondido. Our School of Ministry is intended to train men and women to be effective servants and leaders through personal discipleship, study, and practical experience. Our desire is to equip believers for the work that God has called them to as they grow into full maturity in their Christian walk (Eph. 4:11-13). 


Our School of Ministry offers  classes that our pastors teach, taking us through different books of the Bible or theological themes. These classes go deeper into the details of God's Word and theology than we are able to cover in the Sunday morning messages, and the setting is a balanced mixture of lecture-style teaching and interactive learning.
Module 1: Foundations Of Discipleship
Module 2: Calvary Chapel Disctinctives
Module 3: Inductive Bible Study
Module 4: Outreach & Evangelism
Module 5: Ministry & Leadership
Module 6: Missions & Church Planting


Students (disciples) can enter the program at any module. In other words, Module 4 is not dependent upon completing Modules 1-3. However, to graduate the School Of Ministry program, all modules must be completed.

Registration for classes can be done before the beginning of each module on the Events page under the date of the first class. 


1. Prayer & Devotions: We expect our students to have a personal devotional life of daily Bible reading and prayer.
2. Ministry Involvement: We expect our students (disciples) to be regularly involved in an area of ministry where you can apply the lessons that you are learning to be more effective in your ministry.
3. Homework/Reading Assignments: Some classes will have homework and/or a book assigned to be read during the class.
4. Attendance: Classes typically meet once a week for about 12 weeks and are typically 2 hours long. Students are expected to arrive on time, bring their Bible, and take notes during class.
5. Cost: Each Module will cost $20 per student to register, plus an additional cost for materials and outlines.
