About Revival School

Introducing Revival School

Revival School Aotearoa, New Zealand is based at, and run by, Fiordland New Life Church in Te Anau, New Zealand. We offer a range of mission trips, training events and internship programs. We are based in Te Anau but run training events and mission trips all over New Zealand and the nations. All our mission trips, training events and internship programs are designed to raise up burning hearted, Jesus loving, catalysts and stewards of revival in our nation and beyond.

(A pic taken at Milford Sound when students visited) Te Anau is one of the most spectacular destinations in New Zealand. Te Anau is located on the edge of Fiordland National Park the home of Milford Sound, New Zealand's most famous tourist attraction.

Our DNA

Our DNA is founded on:

  • Our Image of God
  • Our Values
  • Our Culture
  • Our Vision
  • Sonship

Our Image of God

Our Image of God is our most powerful belief. Who we believe God is determines how we interpret the Bible and how we apply what we believe. We believe that God is Love and that God is Good. We believe that God is a Trinity: Father, Son and Spirit. We believe that the Trinity is in perfectly united in Love and that the loving fellowship of the Trinity is the Heartbeat of Heaven. We interpret the Bible and apply its teachings through the lens that God is Love and God is good.

Our Values

The source of our values is our image of God. We believe that God is Love, God is Good and God is a Trinity perfectly united in Love. As a result our core value is Love. We regularly ask ourselves and train others to ask this question in every context: What does Love look like? Whatever Love looks like, that's what we value. One of our highest specific core values is building divine family that reflects the loving fellowship experienced by the Trinity.

Our Culture

Our culture reflects our values. We are very intentional about building a culture that catches the Heartbeat of Heaven. There is a Maori word that catches the essence of this divine culture. It is whanau-nga-tanga. The word whanau means family, the word whanau-nga-tanga carries a concept of powerful community, relationship and connection that catches the essence of the fellowship of the Trinity – divine family.

 

We are building a culture of whanaungatanga using these essential building blocks.

 

  • Unconditional Acceptance: Unconditional Acceptance is an invitation to covenant relationship that is never withdrawn. Unconditional Acceptance is not unconditional intimacy. Intimacy is only experienced in the context of a covenant relationship.

 

  • Covenant Relationship: A covenant relationship gives people the opportunity to choose if they want to be part of a community. In a covenant relationship the values are clearly defined. Boundaries are put in place to protect those values in order to create a safe environment where people feel safe enough to be vulnerable. Without vulnerability we can never experience intimacy. Vulnerability produces intimacy, intimacy creates connection and connection produces a strong sense of belonging.

 

  • An Environment In Which We Can Thrive: In this environment of whanaungatanga, people are positioned to come alive and excel above and beyond what they ever believed possible. This exceptional growth environment is one of the great strengths of Revival School and is a major contributing factor to the accelerated transformations that our students experience.

Our Vision

Our vision is to raise up catalysts and stewards of a national revival in Aotearoa, New Zealand that overflows to every nation.

 

We are fully invested in raising up burning hearted, Jesus loving Revivalists who live in the fullness of the Intimacy, Identity and Destiny available in Jesus Christ through the finished work of the Cross.

 

We are training revivalists to:

 

  • Follow Jesus in total surrender and uncompromised obedience

 

  • Live in extreme intimacy with the Trinity and experience the bliss of Divine Union

 

  • Live whole, healed lives with great mental and emotional health

 

  • Understand and live in their identity as Sons of God

 

  • Minister in the supernatural Love, Presence and Power of God

 

  • Understand origins and interpretations of the Gospel

 

  • Run passionately in the corporate calling of Revealing the Father, Raising up Sons and Advancing the Kingdom of God on Earth as it is in Heaven

 

  • Run passionately in their own unique and dynamic callings

 

  • Establish clear Vision, Goals, Strategy and Daily Action Plans to accomplish their dreams

 

  • Be cultural architects who can intentionally and strategically Advance the Kingdom of God by building communities of divine family founded on whanaungatanga, a culture that reflects the fellowship of the Trinity

 

  • Live lives that give expression to the Extravagant Love of God

 

  • Set great boundaries and model lives of purity

 

  • Communicate effectively with others and have conflict resolution skills

 

  • Be great leaders

 

  • Be great team players

 

  • Carry the Love, Presence and Power of God into the darkest places on the planet

 

  • Have huge amounts of fun as they bring Heaven to Earth

 

Sonship

Experiencing the unconditional love and delight of the Father changes us forever. As we discover who the Father really is, and how He loves us, we begin to discover our true identity and the bliss of our Sonship. (We use the term Sonship and Son in a generic sense, just as men are the Bride of Christ, ladies are the Sons of God).

 

Our core value of revealing the unconditional love and delight of the Father permeates all that we do. During every mission trip, training event or internship program we intentionally reveal the Father in order to raise up Sons who are securely established in their identity and in intimacy. Strong foundations of intimacy and identity produce a natural overflow of powerful Kingdom Advance.

 

That is because the Kingdom of Heaven is advanced through divine Love. Sonship looks like perfectly receiving and giving perfect expression to divine Love. The more we mature in our identity as Sons, the more capacity we have to establish Heaven on Earth.

At Revival School this is our specialty: Revealing the Father, Raising up Sons, Advancing the Kingdom.

Mission Trips, Training Events and Internships

Sonship Program: 1-2 Years

We call our 1-2 year Internship training program a Sonship rather than an Internship. We have done this intentionally because the focus of this training is to raise up Sons of God who understand their identity in Christ.

 

The Sonship Program is the source of the greatest testimonies of transformation in our ministry. Over a period of 1-2 years students are immersed in the transforming Kingdom culture of whanaungatanga. For 1-2 years students are immersed in the revelation of the Father's unconditional Love and Delight! For 1-2 years students get to watch lives of extreme intimacy modeled right in front of them. For 1-2 years students are constantly encouraged and strengthened in their identity.

 

During this time students get to share life in depth with our staff and community. There is access to great inner healing ministries and plenty of time to deal with and overcome the wounds that life has dealt out to people. Our students have been able to overcome wounds from major abuse and arise and shine in victory and wholeness. As a result students have been empowered to engage in the powerful call of God on their lives.

 

The Sonship program includes full time NZQA accredited study through Vineyard College. If students are eligible they can access student loan and allowance through www.studylink.govt.nz. Students' theory assignments are all done by distance. Graduates receive a Certificate in Christian Ministry.

 

The Sonship Program involves up to 10 hours a week of theory and a minimum of 20 hours a week involved in practical ministry. Staff and students work together to allocate areas of practical ministry which involve ministry in Fiordland New Life Church, ministry in the local Te Anau community and ministry to the Lord.

 

There is time for a part time job during the course. The time commitments for the Sonship program are:

 

Tuesday: 7:00am-8:30am Prayer Training; 7:00pm Leadership Development and Prayer Training

 

Friday: 9:00am-5:00pm Sonship Training; Friday night Sonship students are involved in a ministry night.

 

Saturday: On Saturdays we often have ministry engagements that Sonship students are involved in.

 

Sunday: 8:30am – 1:30pm and 5:30pm till late. Fiordland New Life Church.

 

Sonship Students' fees and course also includes the 3-week Revival School Intensive Training School based in Te Anau.

 

Sonship students are also responsible for organising time for any other practical ministries that they are involved in.

 

Second Year Cross Cultural Stream

Second Year Sonship students have the opportunity to participate in our Cross Cultural Missions Stream. This optional stream gives students the opportunity to spend three months serving in a cross cultural setting anywhere in the world. Students wanting to participate in the Cross Cultural Stream will go through a selection process as to the ministry placements.

Intensive Training Schools

Revival School Intensive Training Schools are designed to be an adrenalin hit of Kingdom DNA that produce radical transformation and acceleration in peoples lives. During this time students can expect powerful teaching, revelation, impartation and ministry from the Revival School Staff Team and guest speakers as they train revivalists to:

 

  • Follow Jesus in total surrender and uncompromised obedience

 

  • Live in extreme intimacy with the Trinity and experience the bliss of Divine Union

 

  • Live whole, healed lives with great mental and emotional health

 

  • Understand and live in their identity as Sons of God

 

  • Minister in the supernatural Love, Presence and Power of God

 

  • Understand origins and interpretations of the Gospel

We are involved in a growing range of overseas mission projects; not all of them are suitable for large teams so they are not all advertised on the website. The main focus for our larger missions teams at this point is Thailand. In Thailand we are engaged in reaching unreached peoples, raising up revivalists and strategically fighting human trafficking. Come join us as we make a significant impact in an area where only 0.0008% of the population knows Jesus. Visit the Missions page for more information on upcoming missions.
