Lead Pastor, Church for the Nations
Destiny, purpose, calling and dreams aren’t just the special and unique prerogative of those in the “ministry.” GOD HAS GIVEN EVERY PERSON A DESTINY! Everything in creation has been assigned a purpose by God: The sun fulfills its purpose by shining; the moon fulfills its purpose by reflecting; fish fulfill their God-given purpose by swimming; birds fulfill their God-given purpose by flying. When we find and fulfill our God-given purpose, life becomes the most fulfilling and satisfying it can be and we give God the greatest possible glory our lives can produce.
Our earthly journey then must be to discover our purpose by seeking and surrendering our lives to God and His will for our lives. Picture with me seven great mountains. These seven mountains represent the entirety and experience of life for all people, in every place, in every generation. Here are the Seven Mountains: 1. Family 2. Church 3. Business 4. Government 5. Education 6. Arts 7. Media. In one or more of these seven mountains God has assigned your life a destiny and dream to accomplish His divine purpose there. In that mountain you have been given an inheritance to claim, an uncommon favor and an unstoppable authority to conquer.
CFTN SOM is a place where you’ll be taught, trained, mentored and motivated to “take your mountain” for God and fulfill the dream God has for your life. Our school will help you discover and develop the GIFTS God’s given you that are the keys to fulfilling your purpose. SOM will help you lay a strong foundation that you can build the rest of your life upon. If you feel God has something for you, then I encourage you to GO FOR IT and join our School of Ministry!
God bless you,
Pastor Michael Maiden

We come into this world with God’s blueprint on our lives. Unfortunately, we live in a world that is constantly trying to shape us into its image instead finding God’s destiny for us. Our goal at SOM is to help you discover the plan of God for your life journey. We believe that God’s plan is in you to be discovered, not outside of you to be chased. SOM is designed to assist you in discovery of your identity in Christ and the mountain(s) of influence that you have been called to. Identity is the key to discovering our purpose and destiny.
While academics are important, and there are certainly some academics involved, SOM is an experienced based process that elevates the student’s relationship with God to a greater level and equips each participant with supernatural tools for ministry. You are already naturally supernatural. So get ready to see God’s gifting’s unlocked in your life. It will be a great journey.

In the School of Ministry you will find that the Holy Spirit makes no judgment of His children, but finds partnership with those who are willing. We want to come alongside you and help cultivate what God has placed within you! This is a place where the supernatural is natural and God’s love is evident.
