Academy Of Learning

“The Lord GOD has given me, the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary. He awakens me morning by morning; He awakens my ear, to hear as the learned” (NKJV) – Isaiah 50 v 4.

All Believers are on a journey to become more like Jesus and the Bible commands us to be diligent to present ourselves approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed but one who accurately handle the Word of truth (2nd Timothy 2:15).   Our mission is to equip and educate individuals and teams to serve effectively within the body of Christ by investing in their spiritual growth.  By pursuing the tongue of the learned, the aim of the Academy of Learning is to transform people, families and communities through the teachings of the written Word.  Taking them from where they are to be the man/woman God purposed them to be from birth and equipping them to serve for the glory of God’s kingdom. There is a course available for everyone; for new believers and maturing believers who want to understand and deepen their relationship with God through the Word (Jesus).

 

We are all on a journey to become more like Jesus. By pursuing the tongue of the learned, the aim of the Academy of Learning is to transform people, families and communities through the teachings of the written Word, the Bible.

The bible commands us to study to shew thyself approved unto God – 2nd Timothy 2:15 and our mission is to equip and educate individuals and teams to not only serve effectively within the body of Christ but to also invest in their spiritual growth.

There is a course available for everyone; from the new believer to those who want to go deeper in God. Our aim is to enable a desire to build a closer relationship with the Word (Jesus), through His Word, with courses that are available for all to enrol on and grow into that man/woman of God that was purposed in them from birth – equipping them to serve.
