Bethel Ministry Equipping Center
(formally known as Bethel’s School of Ministry – SOM)
Wednesdays, September 13 – November 1, 2017
The purpose of BMEC is to help members of the Body of Christ discover who they are in Christ, to discover the giftings which God has deposited in them, to nurture and bring those giftings into maturity, and to send those people out to actively impact the world in which we live.
At BCF, there will be basic required courses for anyone wishing to enter any particular field of ministry. There will be, beyond that, a series of elective classes, in order to bring the individuals into even stronger discipleship, knowledge, and ability.
We are excited to launch a new season of equipping for the family at Bethel. Beginning Wednesday, September 13, eight classes will be taught – one each week. This series of eight classes will be the First Session of BMEC. It is the First Session that will be required for Membership here at Bethel. The classes are: Bethel’s Mission, Vision, and Core Values; Discover Your Gift; Grace; Forgiveness; Apostolic Government & Five-Fold Ministry; A New Covenant People; Cultivating a Prophetic Community; Developing a Lifestyle of Prayer. These sessions are valuable for anyone – whether pursuing membership or just interested in the topics of study. So all are welcome.
The Second & Third Sessions will begin in 2018, where we will offer Equipping Classes in the following tracks of study: Prayer, Evangelism & Missions, Marketplace & Community Impact, Prophecy, Healing & Deliverance, Pastoral & Biblical Counsel, Bible, Life Skills, Worship, and Media & Communications.
Worship begins at 6:15pm. Class begins at 7pm – both in the Historic Sanctuary.

Pure Streams is Bethel’s prophetic ministry. The prophetic is simply, hearing from God. Jesus said, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” If we belong to Jesus, we are His sheep, which means we have what we need to hear His voice – we have the Holy Spirit. When we hear from God, He directs us and we know His will. Pure Streams teaches believers how to hear God for themselves. Remember, God wants a relationship with YOU. Relationships should be two-sided. So we can not only pray (talk) to God, we can also condition ourselves to hear Him.
Pure Streams offers Prophetic Boot Camps throughout the year, teaching how to hear from the Lord. They also host Dream Interpretation Boot Camps. God speaks through dreams too. Remember Joseph (Genesis 37), Pharaoh’s dreams in Genesis 41, or King Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 2)?
Here are the BootCamps available in 2017. Cost is $20 for Prophetic Boot Camps; $30 for the Dream Interpretation Camps. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your seat.
Saturdays from 9am – 2pm in the Body Shop.
