It will be a year of in-person, hands-on ministry training, where students walk in the supernatural authority and power that Jesus instructed Believers to walk in, in Matthew 28:18-20.

This will be a year, that will change your life!

Why Glow college?

A LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR

Over the years I have seen many Christians, including myself, frustrated because they want to leave a mark on the world, yet struggle to see the power that Jesus walked in and fully actualised in their own lives. I have always known that there is more to the Christian walk than just attending church on a Sunday, but failed to see it materialise into reality. Because of this I gave God my “YES” to create a space where the norm is smashed and the supernatural is released, launching believers into their destiny by discovering their true identity.

This past year, we’ve had over 55 full-time students, ranging from 18 to 70 years old, push in and push through, giving God their YES each day. During the year, they discovered their true identities through encountering the love and goodness of God, during worship sessions, whilst being equipped and getting their hands “dirty” through practical ministry.

I highly recommend that every person does at least the 1st year for Glow College. The freedom, love and joy that students walk in as they uncover their identity and bring Father's love to their community, is what this world needs, as it faces so much uncertainty.

Are you wanting to see the power that Jesus walked in, fully actualised in your own life? Are you longing to make a mark for God on this World? Are you willing to give God at least a year of your life? If so, contact me, or the Glow College Team, and let us answer any questions you may have and secure your spot for 2022.

I look forward to walking alongside you, as you discover ALL that God has for you.

God bless

Jay Jay Meyer
Director
Glow College

What to Expect

PRESENCE

Glow College is a Holy Spirit-driven leadership college where we practice recognising God’s presence, helping students learn how to live in the Kingdom of God and extend its borders through a supernatural lifestyle.

We will intentionally create space where a hunger for God’s manifest presence and an openness to experiencing the power of Holy Spirit is pursued.

WORSHIP

Worship is a core value of our culture and is a high priority at Glow College because we believe that worship more than just a song we sing. It is actually our heartfelt response we give to God, that places value on Him.

We believe that our students will reach a deeper level in accessing the heart of God as they unite and worship together in ‘spirit and truth’ and therefore prioritise different sessions of corporate prayer and worship each day, which is led by our amazing student worship team.

REVIVALIST LIFESTYLE

Our mission is for each individual to radically live as the revivalist that God has created you to be. A REVIVALIST is a believer who knows and walks in their true God-given identity as a son or daughter, who purposefully and intentionally hosts the presence of God, who shifts atmospheres and brings Heaven to earth for immediate transformation of lives and cultures.

Our expectation is that you will grow in this truth, come to love it, deeply enjoy its value to save and transform you, and ultimately, to radically live it.

TRANSFORMATION

Another big heart’s desire of our college is that each person will have the shackles of slavery removed whilst the sandals of sonship, robe of royalty and ring of authority are restored.

Glow College is designed to be a training ground where our students find and embrace their God ordained identity, learn the values of the Kingdom (The King’s domain), walk in the authority and power of this calling. It is a TRANSFORMATIONAL EXPERIENCE where lives are touched and changed for all eternity!

POWER

The Good News without power is not good news. The Good News is dynamic truth which cuts to our heart and core. It is an invading, disruptive, disturbing, and yet FREEING reality. According to the Bible, this POWER does not allow a hearer to remain the same. So, one of our other goals at GLC is that every student would know this POWER and radically live it as is written in Matthew 10:7-8 [NIV] “As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.”

BECOMING

Glow College is not for the faint of heart. It is an extremely fast-paced season of learning BUT the training is pivotal and strategic, aiding in you becoming who God designed you to be.

Each week consists of 21 hours of worship, teaching, conference style classes, revival and small group meetings as well as weekly hands-on outreaches and serving within the local Community . Experiencing this together as a group, multiplies it exponentially, together cheering each other on as each students realise and live out their unique identities, gifts, and destinies.

Synopsis of your journey

This is what your personal journey can look like if you commit, surrender, remain focused and journey within Glow College:

  • Discover your identity in Christ.
  • Develop a deeper intimacy with God.
  • Learn and live out Biblical Kingdom Values.
  • Learn to walk in the power and gifts of the Holy Spirit.
  • Learn to study and love Scripture.
  • Learn the importance of TRIBE as you build relationships and walk out this journey with other believers.
  • Get equipped in ministry training, revival groups and connect groups.
  • Serve in love, truth, and power through ministry teams and outreach in your local community, city and the nations whilst on mission trips.

Community

We need to remember that; we have been bought with the ultimate price and have been placed within a beautiful family, therefore our behaviour deeply affects others. One of God’s most powerful tools for changing us into His likeness is Community. Personal responsibility and accountability are accomplished through Small Group interaction and a covenant community which embraces honesty, transparency and confrontation. You will be part of a Revival Group and a Small Group, where you will do life, be honoured, cheered on, held accountable, stretched and know grace and unconditional love!

Present in our City

Glow College students will intentionally be reaching out to different areas within our Community and City as part of the Glow College’s City Service and Love On Our City (LOOC) programs. Each student will be involved in the neighbourhood because GENEROSITY IS OUR RESPONSE and PASSION IS THE OVERFLOW.

On top of this, we also encourage students to live in the neighbourhoods and get jobs in the local area, therefore practice bringing Jesus to the marketplace, as a part of their learning hands-on experience. Students are encouraged to work part-time jobs while they attend school.

Academic Life

We emphasise hands-on training and experience along with academic understanding. This creates a “teach and do” culture where students take risks to stretch their faith and grow in their understanding of God and the authority that they are destined to walk in. Students attending Glow College should consider themselves full-time students carrying a full load of coursework.

The academic instruction at Glow College is unique because it is taught by apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers from within Glow Core Team, along with incredible Guest Speakers from all locations. 

While we have powerful speakers within Glow Church, we will also host guest speakers throughout the year, but the primary teaching of 1st year is through the BSSM Curriculum (via video) with speakers like Bill Johnson, Kris Vallotton, Dann Farrelly, Paul Manwaring, Brian Johnson and other fathers and mothers of the faith. Students will learn how to read, understand, and “do” the Bible. They will also know God’s Presence and how to host and practice it by witnessing, healing the sick, prophesying, preaching, praying, casting out demons and much, much more.

Advanced Ministry Training / Tracks

Advanced Ministry Training (AMT) is like an elective (short courses) that gives students training in a variety of areas (e.g. missions, prophetic, kingdom principles, evangelism, etc).

As a full-time student, Advanced Ministry Training (AMTs) are available throughout the year that provide a deeper understanding in different areas. These are amazing opportunities to customise your experience and get the most out of your time at GLC. You will learn more about AMTs once school starts.

Accreditation

1st Year: Glow College 1st Year, is NOT an accredited course, so students are not eligible for financial aid, student loans, grants or tax benefits. Your biggest reward will be being able to lead as a Son or Daughter by knowing God more intimately, walking in your identity and then seeing lives set free as you bring light into dark places, as you shift atmospheres, as you pray for the sick and see miracles happen and as you bring hope to a hopeless society. You will receive a Certificate of Completion with Honours (should you meet the full graduation requirements which is pre-requisite for Glow College 2nd Year) and this will definitely serve as a validation to future ministry employers.

2nd Year: Upon the successful completion of 1st Year, students can apply for Glow College 2nd Year, which is an accredited course. Upon successfully completing 2nd Year, students will graduate with an accredited Diploma of Leadership and Management (Dip Ldrshp & Mgt) through the Australian Institute of Learning.

Is Glow College for me?

Do you want to see the power of God in your life? Do you desire to have greater intimacy with God and with others? Do you have a passion to see the impossible made possible? Do you want to be used by God to shape the course of human history? Are you willing to embrace the lifestyle of a revivalist?

If your answer is “YES” to any of these questions, then Glow College is for you!

Vision

REAL BOLD LOVE
igniting REVIVAL resulting in TRANSFORMATION.

our Mission

To equip, empower, activate and send revivalists across our community, city, nation and the world, who passionately walk in REAL BOLD LOVE, touching and changing lives for all eternity, wherever they go!

Prior to GSM my life was either a state of coping and getting through, or it was a season riddled with pain and disappointment that seemed to affect who I was. I became caught up in the doing and the tasks of church, rather than the being and spending time with God. What was maddening about that season, is that although I was living out as a person in pain, I could still see and feel my authentic self within me trying to be the stronger version of my reality. A version of joy, strength, drive, passion and consistency.

Since attending GSM that authentic self has become, not only my strongest reality, but my only reality. To anyone considering this life altering program I would say in the sweetest but most convicting way possible, “Fear should not determine whether or not you find your God given identity, so grow the spirit man or woman that is within you and get yourself in the room. You will not be disappointed.”

Brontë Redenbach (21yrs), Gold Coast, Australia

 

Prior to GSM I was a primary school teacher in Dalby, Australia. When I stepped into GSM I was broken, lost and had allowed the hardships of life to affect my beliefs and identity in God. GSM brought me back to a place where I am living from an understanding of the true unconditional love of the Father. It has assisted me in fostering a more intimate relationship with Holy Spirit and gave me an opportunity to not only know the trinity, but outwork His love for others on a daily basis. I now live, knowing who I am and whose I am.

If you have a burning desire to know God more intimately and crave a community of like-minded believers to grow with. Glow College is for you!

Prior to this year I was passionate to experience God more, but I felt that being an introvert I didn’t feel a part of the church. Every day I was hit with guilt, shame, and condemnation, living in a world full of lies, past traumas, and hurt. I was very inconsistent and always running from my circumstances and could never sit still. As I started GSM I soon discovered that deep character building had to be done. I also learnt the importance of the Holy Spirit, how-to live-in consistency with God, Jesus and Holy Spirit and how to open up with others and walk-through healings of my past. 


My highlight throughout the year was encountering a safe family where you can be yourself and learn everything in a safe environment. I saw a lot of change and growth in myself and others around me. GSM helped change my identity in Christ, by breaking the lies I experienced as a kid and adulthood and also developed a love for reading
the Word of God.


I recommend those who have a passion to discover God more deeply, those who are sceptics and those who feel stuck in the life they are currently living … to do Glow College. I encourage those who have a heart cry for the lost
to be saved, revival to break out, and those who want to be a part of the pioneering of churches around the world, to do Glow College. With an open mind and a determined heart, your year at GSM will be life-changing!

I am a wife and mother of ten. Over the last couple of years, I had got lost in the challenges of being a mum to a such a large family. My relationship with the Lord wasn’t where I wanted it to be, and I had become a bit of a hermit. The opportunity of doing GSM came up. So, I decided to step outside of my comfort zone. 

GSM has totally changed my life, it has given me a hope and future, it has ignited a spark to be everything God has called me to be. I now have a burning hunger for more of God. I’ve been challenged to face things from my past, been encouraged to change my mindset on how I see myself and how I see others. It has really taught me more about how God sees me and what my identity in Him is.

Now as each of my children finish school, I’ve asked them all to commit a year to the Lord by doing GSM for themselves. Anyone that does, will set themselves up for an encounter with God that will ignite a fire in them to be everything God called them to be. I would highly recommend Glow College to EVERYONE!!!!

I first heard the gospel a couple of months before I began Glow School of Ministry. Before that, I was not a Christian and lived a life of sin and destruction. GSM has changed my life completely. I have experienced the Holy Spirit every day and He has changed my perception of people and the love that God has for me and others.

I have learnt to minister and partner with the Holy Spirit to bring His will on earth. In GSM I have found family and learnt what it is to be a disciple of Jesus. I have been equipped through discovering my identity in Christ to become a living encounter. I love to see the power of God coupled with the gospel to change lives in the community for those who have never met Him or never knew the relationship we’re called to.
