Is giving to God's work a joyous adventure for you? Or is it something else...? Many Christians give to God's work grudgingly, out of a sense of duty, or out of guilt if they don't feel they give enough. But God intends that your giving be a source of joyous adventure and abundant blessing.
In this seminar Dr. Clayton Ford and Rev. Pam Wantz will use the Scriptures and share personal experiences from their own lives, as well as the lives of others, and how they have discovered the joy and adventure of giving.
“Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap" (Luke 6:38).
Classes will be a 1.5 hour Zoom meeting for six weeks on the same night each week starting at 8 pm ET / 7 pm CT / 6 pm MT / 5 pm PT. Currently there are classes scheduled for Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights.
The cost to participate in RSOM is so low it is astounding! You’ll be charged a fee of $10 per course, or a maximum of $25 for all courses taught per six-week term. It is our desire to make these courses accessible to all.
Upward, inward, and outward are the three primary directions of the Christian life and the ways we minister and grow spiritually; also the three directions the Holy Spirit always moves: Upward includes our personal and corporate relationship with God (like worship and prayer); Inward includes spiritual growth in fellowship, body life, discipleship, building up the church; and Outward includes reaching out to evangelize and minister to the needs of others, also being salt and light.
The Holy Spirit moves in all three directions, and all three are very important. If one of the three is left out, there is a lack of spiritual growth and ministry in that area, and that affects our growth in the other areas as well. So, we want to maintain a healthy balance and have included courses that reflect this balance.
In addition to the upward, inward, and outward courses, there will be a number of General courses, which are foundational courses that everyone should take, like Old and New Testament, Theology, How to interpret the Bible responsibly, Christian worldview, etc. We believe that by experiencing these four types of courses that you will develop a great foundation as a Holy Spirit filled disciple of Jesus.

Clay Ford's class on the Holy Spirit was terrific. He's a great teacher and managed the Zoom learning environment well. It was neat to see classmates from all over the country!
I signed up for the class to learn about the Holy Spirit, but more importantly to learn to be Spirit-filled and more open to having the Spirit active in my life.
Classes are over, but the book, study guide, and class materials give me much to review, study, pray about, explore, and strive for. "Come Holy Spirit!"
First I want to thank you for the class you taught, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have learned more about the healing ministry, and pray I will get more proficient as I move along in this ministry. I have bought a copy of Peter Wagner's book "How To Have A Healing Ministry--Without Making Your Church Sick". It's a great read thus far. Thanks again for all you have taught us.
God's Blessings to you
The Holy Spirit and The Spirit Filled Life
What really stood out to me in that class was when someone talked about getting in the river. Clay had said that we are fine when we are up to our knees in water and even our chests, but when it gets over our heads is when we really have to rely on the Holy Spirit to guide us. A person in the class related that we can be filled with the Holy Spirit up to our knees, up to our chest or we can ask for more and have him fill us up over our heads, again and again. Clay's use of the stacking boxes as the gifts given to us that we have the opportunity to open or not was powerful. If we are given the option of opening the box or not, we may not open all of the gifts he offers us. I enjoyed all of the classes and will take a couple more next session.
