Bethesda College has been a major part of Victory Church since the earliest days of our ministry. I love the opportunity this school gives us to prepare men and women for the ministry. There are several key ingredients that are essential to equip ministers for the work of the gospel. First is our emphasis on teaching of the scripture. Our classes are Bible based and give our students an opportunity to saturate in the word of God. Second is our emphasis on the anointing. The power of signs and wonders have never been more needed than in today’s world. We need more than just human information, we desperately need the power of the Spirit to prepare us for effective ministry. Bethesda also gives us an opportunity for hands on training. Our church has a multitude of ministry opportunities for preparation. Everything from our Mary’s Song for young women, street evangelism in the French Quarter, as well as a variety of other church ministries including everything from young adults, youth, children, and family small group ministry. If you are called into the ministry Bethesda is a great place to receive the training that you will need.
