A Word from Our President

To all the students of Faith Alive School of Ministry:

Thank you for your quality decision to take an important step towards your ministry future. We believe that FASOM will be a blessing to you, and help you fulfill your destiny by giving you instruction rooted in the following four principles:

Wisdom it is the goal of this institution to prepare you for the work of the ministry, with an emphasis on the present day ministry of the Holy Spirit. We accomplish this by instruction that is geared towards your growth as a leader, and practical in-depth teachings that relate to your course of study, while inspiring you to dig into the treasures of the Word of God for yourself.
2 Timothy 2:15 KJV - Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Character the foundation of any great work in the Kingdom of God is the building of the person, rather than the work itself. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "Every great institution is the lengthened shadow of a single man. His character determines the character of his organization. " FASOM is a school built on character principles found in the Word of God, which will reproduce itself in great men & women of God who will be challenged to be people of integrity, honor, loyalty, and diligence. Wisdom is our shared goal, character is our foundation.
2 Pet 1:5 - And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

Excellence academic excellence is essential on both sides of the lectern. Our job is to provide you with anointed instructors who will teach the Word with conviction and passion. Your job is to respond in kind, by being a model student to your peers; a person who has a desire to give God their very best, as He gave us His very best His only Son, Jesus Christ. We will do the very best with what God has blessed us with, and we expect you to do the same.
Colossians 3:23 - And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

Passion the world needs more people that are passionate about their God! We are passionate about turning out world-changers; people who have zeal for God, and for the lost. An unquenchable desire to be in the presence of God will transform you and the world around you.
Psalm 69:9 - For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up;

Your commitment to fulfilling these principals will result in an enjoyable, faith-filled experience in the time you spend at FASOM. You will leave this school ready to fulfill the destiny that God has ordained for you, and enter into the work of the ministry with confidence and preparedness.

Yours in Christ,

Pastor David A. Oberg
