ABOUT CSSM

Encounter God/Walk in His Power/Expand His Kingdom

Convergence Supernatural School of Ministry (CSSM) exists to raise up a generation that is fascinated with Jesus and passionately pursues Him. We believe that everything we do should stem from and be fueled by being in His presence and encountering Him. CSSM places a strong emphasis on intimacy with God, the Kingdom of God, healing, intercession, developing a prophetic culture and demonstrating the gospel with power. Our mission is to equip & deploy revivalists who passionately pursue personal, regional and worldwide transformation in their God-given spheres of influence. We do this through the development of a culture of honor and a lifestyle of the supernatural based on experiencing the presence of God, teaching our identity in Christ and learning how to walk in signs and wonders. We are committed to the mandate to train believers to love Jesus and others wholeheartedly as they go forth to preach the Word, heal the sick, serve the poor and extend the kingdom. We’re equipping people to bring the love and power of Jesus back into the church, into families, into schools, into the marketplace, into government, into the arts, into the news/communications media and wherever God places them.

CSSM is the convergence of two streams, the stream of a supernatural lifestyle and the stream of the House of Prayer (cHOP) that builds intimacy with God through night and day prayer.  We believe that a supernatural lifestyle stems from and is fueled by intimacy with God.  CSSM is part of Convergence House of Prayer (cHOP) whose goal is to keep the altar of prayer and worship burning before the throne of God 24/7 as outlined in Leviticus 6:12-13 and as modeled by the tabernacle of David. The prayer room provides a focused environment for personal devotions as well as corporate prayer and intercession.  We want to cultivate a hunger in each student to sit at His feet and be captivated by His beauty and splendor and to reignite the passion to join with Christ in interceding at the throne of God.  Through time spent in the prayer room, students develop a hunger to encounter God daily and it’s through these encounters that they are fueled to go and re-present Christ to the world around them. 

CSSM is closely connected to Bethel Church in Redding, CA and The International House of Prayer in Kansas City.  Our mission is to combine the intimacy of the pray room reality and the depth of going deep in God with a supernatural lifestyle of walking in signs & wonders.

CSSM is a Holy Spirit driven ministry school where students of all ages come to learn how to live in the Kingdom of God.  At CSSM you will find a safe and loving atmosphere where taking risks is encouraged. The school emphasizes hands on training and experience along with academic understanding.  Our model is to teach then do.  All students are expected to take risks to stretch their faith and grow in their understanding of God.  Students are required to attend a local church, commit time in the Convergence House of Prayer (cHOP) and to participate in ministries where they can put into practice what they are learning.
