Gethsemane Prayer Academy
Gethsemane Prayer Conference and Seminar
OPERATIONAL AND HOSTING GUIDELINES
(1). Historical Background of Gethsemane Prayer Ministries and Gethsemane Prayer School
The Gethsemane Prayer Ministry which started as Gethsemane Prayer Fellowship was commissioned on May 23, 1987 as a forum for continuous and consistent teaching and practice of God?s word in prayer, fasting, praise, worship, intercession, supplication and deliverance. It was founded through God?s servant, Dr. Moses Aransiola, and now has a worldwide scope.
Gethsemane Prayer Ministries incorporates the Gethsemane Prayer Fellowship, the Gethsemane Prayer School, Gethsemane Chapels, Gethsemane Itinerant Ministry, Gethsemane Publications, Gethsemane Media, and National Prayer Mobilization.
God has used the ministry, through the Gethsemane Chapel of Life, to plant vibrant churches in some major cities of Nigeria including Abuja, Ibadan, and Lagos.
God has also used the Gethsemane Prayer School under the leadership of Dr. Moses Aransiola to run prayer schools, prayer academies, prayer conferences, and revival meetings in five continents of the world. Since its inception in 1993, God has used the Gethsemane Prayer School to train and commission more than 100,000 prayer warriors, intercessors, and lay people all over the world. The Gethsemane Prayer School has a global reputation for sound Bible based teachings on diverse aspects of prayer and effective spiritual warfare. The ministry has its headquarters in Ibadan, Nigeria.
(2.) Prayer School, Prayer Academy, Prayer Conferences, and Prayer Seminar.
(a). The Prayer school is packaged to train believers generally in the art and practice of spiritual warfare. It is an academic package with spiritual fire. It involves the use of teaching manuals and prayer tutorials. Particpants are required to register at stipulated amount.
(b.) The prayer academy is packaged specifically for leaders like pastors, evangelists, missionaries, church planters, business people, corporate managers, and enterprenuers. It also involves the use of teaching manuals and prayer tutorials. Participants are also required to register at stipulated amount.
(c.) The prayer seminar is packaged for church workers, prayer bands, intercessory groups, and other specialized audiences. It may require the use of teaching manuals and the payment of registration fees, depending on the discretion of the host and facilitators.
(d.) The prayer conference is packaged according to the discretion of the host. Normally, it does not involve the use of teaching manuals or payment of registration fees by participants; the full cost of the conference is borne by the host.
(3.)Why Prayer School?
(a.) The Bible teaches that a Christian is a soldier in the army of God. The Bible knows nothing of a civilian Christian. Hence the need to train Christians in Bible based spiritual military operations.
Unfortunately, in the attempt to make the gospel message attractive, some modern preachers have left many Christians with the impression that spiritual warfare is not important. However, the practical life experiences of these believers continue to show that something vital is missing in their Christian profession. In most cases, prayer and spiritual warfare is the missing ingredient in a defeated Christian, professional, and ministerial life. All spiritual decays begin from the prayer closet.
(b.)The general prayerlessness and apathy to prayer and spiritual warfare in the church are responsible for the incursions of the enemy into every area of our Christian life ? personal, professional, marital, financial, ministerial, territorial, national, and continental.
(c.) Most Bible colleges and seminaries do not have comprehensive prayer curricullum in their programmes. Consequently, they produce graduates who are mostly loaded with theological knowledge and doctrines but lack spiritual fire.
(4.) Spread / Areas of Operation So Far
The Gethsemane Prayer School has successfully held prayer schools, prayer academies, and prayer conferences in Europe, Asia, United States of America, Australia, and Africa.
Some of the Nigerian churches and Christian bodies that have successfully hosted the Gethsemane Prayer School are The Redeemed Christian Church of God, The Foursquare Gospel Church, The Anglican Church, The Methodist Church, The Baptist Church, The Word of Life Bible Church, All Christian Fellowship Mission, Obafemi Awolowo University Staff and Students, Church of God Mission, etc.
Prayer schools and prayer conferences have been held in almost all the major cities of Nigerian, and at least 100,000 students / participants have been trained globally.
