We exist for training in Christian academics, life skills, and ministry skills for the objective of sending people globally to make disciples of all nations.


We are a school of the supernatural. We value an atmosphere of faith that creates an environment where the life and fruit of God's Spirit is evident. You will capture this value through practical, "hands-on" ministry experience; through seasoned teachers who impart their gifts, wisdom and passions; and through discipleship under qualified mentors.

Our goal is to raise up a kingdom people - a generation of men and women that will go throughout the world making disciples of the nations (Matthew 28:19). We accomplish this in three ways: 


- Identify - 

We help you know God and who God designed you to be.


- Activate - 

We invite you to be in a family to grow and activate your gifts.


- Equip - 

We give you teaching and resources to help you grow.



Hearing God

Yes, we can all hear God's voice. He is speaking, but are we listening? At Horizon College of Ministry we want to help you recognize the voice of God. We can learn to distinguish His voice from: our own voice, other people's voices, and the voice of Satan. As we walk together with God, we find complete peace, confidently knowing His direction and purpose for our lives.


Knowing Your Design

You are uniquely created by God with a specific design. We are here to help you understand that design and discover how you are created. Understanding your wiring changes the way you view yourself, relate to God, and to others. This understanding frees you to be who God designed you to be, releasing a sense of fulfillment and hope.


Bondage Breaking

Each of us have un-Biblical ways of thinking that become roadblocks to our destiny. Breaking through these roadblocks starts by identifying ungodly thought patterns, forgiving ourselves and renewing our minds. Often this requires the supernatural intervention of Holy Spirit to reveal to us the "what" and the "how" to come into the freedom Jesus purchased for us. Old things pass away, and all things become new.


Spirit of Sonship

God is moving us from servanthood to sonship. This is a big transition and changes the way we relate to God. He is no longer the "boss" or "taskmaster" but, instead, He is our "Father". We develop a relationship of walking together daily, enjoying our Father's friendship, and watching our authority increase as we take on His character. As a result, our discipleship takes on the character of being a son, and growing into complete maturity. This results in us becoming fathers ourselves to spiritual sons and daughters.



The Word of the Lord was revealed to us


that it was time to formalize our ministry institute (begun in 1993) into what is now Horizon College of Ministry. Our mandate was to establish an identifiable "training track" to help disciples take the gospel globally, planting and maturing churches. 

The two rails of this track are GRACE and TRUTH. Truth refers to the revelations from God's Word. Grace refers to the power of Holy Spirit, who provides the unction resulting in miracles and healings.

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.  
- John 1:14 & 17
