School of Ministry

SOM Mission Statement

The Water of Life Community Church School of Ministry serves to equip and train the church by providing biblically sound instruction in the Word of God and to activate them in the ministry of the Holy Spirit. The School of Ministry supports the diverse needs of our congregation and community by preparing people for works of service, helping them grow in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature believers committed to the disciple-making process.


“And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unit of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.”  Ephesians 4:11-13
