School of Transformation 2020-2021

Beginning August 23, 2020

Sunday evenings, 6:00-9:00


Do you know who you are created to be? Do you desire to encounter God in new and deeper ways, or be a deeper well of encounters with God to the world around you? Do you long to experience greater freedom and abundance of life that Christ has made available to you?

Welcome to the School of Transformation's home page!! We are so excited about your interest! We heartily believe this school will hugely impact your life and the lives of everyone around you, and help you gain results to the above questions. The School of Transformation, located in the Brainerd Lakes Area, is a part-time ministry school for full-time people desiring to live a supernatural lifestyle everyday that releases heaven on earth and transforms the world!

We will begin our school year on August 23rd with a 6 week intensive titled The Foundations to Freedom, by Bob Hamp. This portion of the school is free and open to the public, so invite your friends and family to come experience a taste of what you will be enjoying all year. Many have testified to changed lives just from these weeks! It provides an excellent foundation to the areas we will dive into more deeply throughout the rest of the school year and will get you hungry for more!!


Following the FoF (Foundation of Freedom) sessions, we will limit all remaining classes to those who have previously applied and been accepted into the 2020-2021 student body. The School of Transformation (SoT) will then feature DVD curriculum from the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM). The DVD Curriculum focuses on developing a culture of revival and a lifestyle of the supernatural through teaching on our identity in Christ, how to walk in signs & wonders, and Bible study. There is also a strong emphasis on healing, developing a prophetic culture, and demonstrating the gospel with power. Our goal is to see His will done here on earth just as it is in Heaven. Along with the BSSM DVD curriculum, we also emphasize a hands on approach to learning. This is not just a sit in the classroom study, but also practical application and activation.

SoT is a school, grounded in honor with strong Biblical foundations, that provides a safe place for activation and application of the messages in the students’ lives. Ultimately, it takes the things of God and helps turn them into a lifestyle to be lived instead of mere theology to be learned. 

Classes will run Sunday evenings from 6:00-9:00pm, August 23rd through May

Classes are held at Eden Ministry Center: 3385 MN-210, Pillager, MN 56473

Tuition costs 2020-2021:

  • $495 for Individual

  • Tuition can be paid in four equal monthly payments

Our goal is to make this accessible to as many people as we are able, while maintaining a reasonable operating budget. If tuition costs are preventing your enrollment, please contact us. Periodically we have had past and current students, who have experienced the value of this class, contribute scholarship monies for such needs.


Classes are open to all adult ages and we have witnessed the numerous benefits of the multi-generational atmosphere. We also allow teenagers who are serious about their walk with God to enroll. We do ask, however, that you give consideration to the pace of the coursework, and the maturity of the content and discussion when determining appropriateness for non-adult students. Pre-high school graduates to be accompanied by a parent or adult.

The School of Transformation is a school, and though we will have time of fellowship and worship, we operate as a school. If you are in need of personal ministry, we encourage you to seek assistance from a local pastor/church.  SoT is non-accredited.

Student Testimonies


“I have been listening to Bethel’s (Redding, CA) podcasts for several years so when I heard the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry DVD curriculum was available here I knew I was going to get some great teaching, but what I wasn’t expecting was the “hands on” aspect and the “safe place” atmosphere to try and practice these things I was learning.”


“The reason I drive 90 miles each week one way is because of the culture of empowerment that is here. I’m not just being given a fish to eat but I’m being empowered. Now I am feeding the hungry in my path in my day to day life, changing the world!”


“What the School of Transformation does is gives a place to get hands-on experience, the opportunity to try and the freedom to fail. It’s a safe place. A safe place to practice the things of the kingdom of God. You will get out of your comfort zone but this is a safe place to do that.”


“My favorite memory is being put on the spot. We were told to give a world of knowledge to someone and I have never in my life been put in that position. I always thought God gave those gifts to only some people. Realizing that God did that through me and actually getting it right was transforming!”


“It’s been an encounter with the love of God which has permeated this place and has come out of the leadership and been pulled out of all of the students and created this safe place with all sorts of freedom to grow and try new things and to just love God. Then it’s been an encounter with myself, like who I really am, my identity in Christ.”


“I got to experience a loving Heavenly Daddy who rocked my world and changed my heart. I got to experience Holy Spirit who is now a saturated part of my everyday life.” 

“Top two things:

Identity - I’ve learned so much about how God love me. It affects all parts of my life. I love myself and the people around me even more. I want to share the love with my friends. 

The second is Praise - Learning that we can give God praise in so many different ways has been awesome.” -Trevor P

“I’ve been able to see and feel things in the spirit realm that I didn’t know was possible before. Also, there’s been more boldness placed in me because of activation and my strengthened relationship with Holy Spirit.” - Megan P. 

“I gained boldness and confidence to give freely what I have received. A passion to make sure everyone knows what God wanted them to know. A willingness to be the one who tells them.” - Ellie W.
