OUR VISION

Ascend Academy is a two year School of Ministry that leads unto graduation and an ordination with a third year internship option. We maintain a high standard of going after the Presence of God together, diving deep into the Eternal Word of God, and being transformed into the image of Jesus Christ.

 

One of our main functions is teaching, imparting and training the nations of the world to fulfill the Great Commission under one goal and mission: Loving the Lord Jesus Christ with all of our hearts, souls, and minds.

 

We are also now putting great focus on raising up worshippers who both sing and play instruments that have a Levitical heart to minister to the Lord as we pour out our love upon the Lord Jesus week in and week out.

 

Raising up a generation with Excess Oil…prepared and ready for the return of their Bridegroom King.

 

Providing a community and “Tribe” as mentioned in Philippians 2:2 “being like-minded, having the same love, united in spirit, intent on the one purpose.”

 

Enabling and commissioning Jesus lovers to step into their God-given calling, destiny, and assignment

 

And so much more…
