School of Ministry Summary & Expectations

Ministry is caught more than taught. The best place to catch it is where it is happening. Chapel of Change is such a place where God is doing ministry in a special way.  We’re a multi-ethnic, multi-generational and multi-campus church, which puts us in the top tier of fruitful churches in America.
In 2016 Chapel of Change was recognized as one of the top 5 fastest growing churches in the nation within Free Methodist Church.
SoM seeks to follow the discipling process used by Jesus. He spent time with His disciples and put them in situations where they had to reproduce the things they were seeing and learning. They watched His ministry and followed His example. Teaching was integrated with real life.
SoM gives opportunity to learn ministry skills while going on a leadership journey with Pastor Brian, his team and participating in ministry at Chapel of Change.  
SoM’s purpose is to help produce effective leaders for our generation.
