Purpose of Educational Programs
The purpose of OPISOP’s educational programs is to create a positive impact on culture through equipping students with the knowledge, skills, abilities, and attitudes that benefit their own lives, as well the lives of those they are called to lead and serve. OPISOP educational programs seek to merge practice with scholarship. Our goal is to equip ministries who are able to lead and serve as practitioner-scholars. To accomplish this, the curriculum has a mix of the practical as well as the scholarly. Most of the School’s faculty are well-established teachers with professional educational experience and advanced degrees.
School of the Prophets
At the heart of The School of the Prophets is the bachelor’s degree in Biblical and Theological Studies. The degree program prepares its graduates to make meaningful differences for Christ in all aspects of society. Students gain a greater understanding of the apostolic and the prophetic and a wealth of wisdom about exercising those gifts in the marketplace, in ministry, and in personal settings
