“My beloved ones, be supernaturally enthused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus!” Ephesians 6:10 (The Passion translation)
Finger Lakes School of Supernatural Ministry (FLSSM) inspires, instructs, activates and connects adults 18 and older to walk in their identity in Christ and the supernatural love and power of God. Our vision is to see the family of God come fully alive in their gifts and callings to pursue personal, regional and global transformation. Finger Lakes Ignite is an experiential learning program developed by Reach Out For Christ Church
working with similar schools in Columbus and Cleveland, Ohio; Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; and Redding, California.
Our mission is to help individuals encounter the presence of God and spread the culture of God’s Kingdom on earth. We aim to develop grace-filled believers who know how to release the love of Jesus and walk in their destiny expecting God to move supernaturally wherever they go.
Every believer’s inheritance is to carry the presence of God and see people transformed by the power of His love working through us. This happens as we move from simply believing
in Jesus to believing like Jesus, and as we are transformed by the renewing of how we think, see, and experience life (Romans 12:2, John 6:29). Ultimately, Jesus changed the world through the supernatural power of his connection to the Father. The more we learn to embrace the loving presence of God and participate in His divine nature (2 Peter 1:4
), the more we see the world around us change!
Finger Lakes Ignite classes are a safe place to step out in faith, take risks, grow and experience God in new ways! Classes include instruction by regional and international guest speakers, including both live and video instruction, Bible study, creative activations, coaching & building relationships. Weekly Fire House Worship
provides opportunities to learn how to minister to others. We utilize activations in such areas as hearing God’s voice, discovering your destiny, operating in the gifts of the Spirit, creative expression and prophetic evangelism. Learning experiences also include times of outreach and mission trip opportunities.
Students are transformed into walking in a Spirit-led lifestyle based on deeper understanding of their destiny, greater confidence in their faith, and direct experience in exercising the gifts of the Spirit in all kinds of settings. In this context, evangelism and acts of service become an innate and continual witness to Christ’s supernatural victory on the Cross wherever we go. Our sphere of influence may be our home, school, the marketplace or any realm of secular culture in which we are called to engage.
One of the major functions of miracles and victorious living is to offer immediate, irrefutable proof of what God wants to happen on earth. It demonstrates who God is by showing what His reality looks like. The apostle Paul put it this way:
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2, emphasis added).
“It is unnatural for a Christian not to have an appetite for the impossible.”
– Bill Johnson, The Supernatural Power of a Transformed Mind
