To prepare men and women for effective ministry in the church, in the community, and around the world.
Dear Prospective Student,
Thank you for your interest in the Stone Edge School of Ministry. We are excited that you are considering going deeper in your understanding of God’s word and His plans for your life.
Our vision at SESOM is “to prepare men and women for effective ministry in the church, in the community, and around the world.” We believe that God has called Stone Edge Church to be a place of equipping and sending. SESOM will serve a strategic role in your life as you prepare to lead at a higher capacity.
Who is SESOM for? Is SESOM only for those wanting to enter full-time ministry?
No, SESOM is designed for the leader who is pursuing a call to ministry, for the leader who desire a deeper understanding of God's Word, and for the leader who wants to be better prepared for ministry in their own local church.
SESOM will equip you in the areas of practical ministry and in-depth biblical studies. Our first-class faculty is both academically trained and fully anointed to sow into your life and prepare you for ministry.
To accommodate your busy schedule, we have set up our classes to meet on Monday nights from 7-9 pm at Stone Edge.
We invite you to be a part of our great school as you prepare for the ministry God has called you to. We look forward to having you join us at Stone Edge School of Ministry.
Pastor Joey Ellis
