Why GSM?


My wife and I have had the privilege, over the years, of attending numerous conferences at Bethel Church, Redding, California. These were wonderful, life-changing experiences which totally spoilt the “normal way of doing church” for us. Why? you would ask. Well, you see, the worship experience was amazing, the teaching was exceptional, the culture of honour was, well… honouring, the prophetic was evident, the Prayer Chapel and Healing Rooms were an encounter and so I can go on. As I said, it was life-changing! But there was one thing that made my heart stop, and made me take notice. It was whilst being in town, away from the “Church environment” whilst buying food, or doing grocery shopping or at a restaurant etc, that we would get to the counter to pay, and the person helping us would hear our accents, recognise we were from Australia and then ask “Are you here for a conference at Bethel Church?” We would affirm this and do what anyone would and asked “Do you attend Bethel?” or “Is Bethel your church?” etc. About nine times out of 10, the person would reply along the lines of “No, I don’t believe!” or “No I am not religious!” or “No, I used to go to church, but…”.

What stood out the most for us, was that the town was aware of The Church. The Church was making a difference in the town – how else would they know about it? On enquiry as to how or why they knew about Bethel Church, we found out that it was because “a group of people from their school cleaned up our community park” or “I met a person who prayed for my sore leg and it got well”, or “they do so much for our town, my business has been impacted by their presence,” or “they tip so well when they dine-in” and so I can go on.

It was clear to us, that the church, was being The Church, not amongst four walls on a Sunday, but within their community, every day, walking in love, calling out destiny, honouring those around them, knowing their identity as sons and daughters of the King as well as the power and authority given to them through the cross and therefore, bringing transformation where ever they went. We encountered this fruit!

We love, honour and respect Bethel Church, the leaders and staff, what they are doing not only in Redding but also the world, but my heart is not to duplicate Bethel Church in Australia! My heart is to see the fruit that I saw and experienced there, manifested here in our Great Southland of the Holy Spirit – Australia. And to do that, our mandate is to create a space where people, like you, find and embrace their true identity, fall in love with Jesus – The Word, experience the goodness of Father God and therefore bring heaven to earth, boldly stepping out, taking risks and living a life of love and passion.

Join us for a year and let God reveal everything to you about your “sonship”. Become the revivialist that God has destined you to be so that where you go, you help revive your workplace, place of education, community, family, friends – hosting His presence and bringing Heaven to earth.

Don’t hesitate – the time is now!

Contact the team, should you have any questions.

We look forward to meeting you soon.

God bless

What to Expect


GSM is a Holy Spirit-driven ministry school 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 is a core value of our culture and is a high priority at GSM because, as Bill Johnson said, “It’s more than a song we sing. It’s 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’. We have prioritised different sessions of corporate prayer and worship each day, which is to be led by our amazing student worship team.


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.


Another big heart’s desire of our school is that each person will have the shackles of slavery removed and the robe of royalty and ring of authority restored – with each individual walking in their royal identity as sons and daughters of the King.

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


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, another of our goals at GSM 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.”


GSM is not for the faint of heart. It is an extremely fast-paced season of schooling, 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 connect group meetings and weekly hands-on outreaches and serving. Experiencing this together as a group, multiplies it exponentially, together cheering each other on as each realise and live out their unique identities, gifts, and destinies, bringing transformation to not only themselves, but also their local communities.

Synopsis of your journey

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

  • 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.


We need to remember that; we have been bought with the ultimate price and placed within a beautiful family. 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 connect group interaction and a covenant community which embraces honesty, transparency and confrontation. You will be part of a Revival Group and a Connect Group, where you will do life, be honoured, encouraged, held accountable, stretched and know grace and love!

Present in our City

GSM students will intentionally be reaching out to different areas within our community and city as part of the GSM 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 GSM should consider themselves full-time students carrying a full load of coursework.

The academic instruction at GSM is unique because it is taught by apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers from hundreds of hours of on-demand course content from Bethel Church as well as Pastors and leaders from our own Church.

While we have powerful guest speakers throughout the year, the primary teaching is through the BSSM Curriculum (via video) with speakers like Bill Johnson, Kris Vallotton, Dann Farrelly, Paul Manwaring, Brian Johnson, as well as other fathers and mothers of the faith. Students will learn how to read, understand, and “do” the Bible, how to practice His presence, to witness, heal the sick, prophesy, preach, pray, cast 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 art, evangelism, etc).

Tracks are more like year-long, career-oriented classes (e.g. church planting, youth ministry, kids ministry, etc) that students can take instead of AMTs.

As a full-time student, Advanced Ministry Training (AMTs) & Track classes 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 GSM. You will learn more about AMTs & TRACKS once school starts.


GSM is NOT an accredited, degree-granting educational institution, so students are not eligible for financial aid, student loans, grants or tax benefits. Your biggest reward will be 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 should you meet the graduation requirements and this will definitely serve as a validation to future ministry employers.

Is GSM for me?

Are you hungry 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 GSM is for you!

Hi my name is Jason and I’m from the Gold Coast, Australia. I went to Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in 2011 and completed all 3 years of Bethel. 

I read a book by Kevin Dedmon on Treasure Hunting and was fascinated by these young people out on the streets living a supernatural lifestyle. I realised they knew something that I didn’t and whatever they had I wanted. 

I dropped my job in Finance and flew to Bethel. To say my life was transformed is an understatement. I found an intimate relationship with Holy Spirit, how to hear his voice and follow him throughout life. The revelation; that I was a son of God and could have relationship with my Father and live a naturally supernatural life.

If you have that longing inside you, to do the things that Jesus did, to live a supernatural lifestyle, then there is no better curriculum in the world then Bethel’s. I’m extremely excited that Glow will be using that curriculum here on the Gold Coast, you will not be the same on the other side of the school.

My name is Ella and I’m from Melbourne Australia, and I am a Pastor at Bethel Church in Redding California. I went to Bethel school of Supernatural Ministry in 2014 and completed all three years.

I came to BSSM because I had seen people transformed under the teachings of Bill Johnson and Kris Vallotton. I had been a Christian all my life but had never experienced the power of God. I had heard about people living a miraculous lifestyle, encountering God, seeing miracles and believing God was a good Father, so I decided to take the risk and move from Australia to California. The result was, I saw God show up in the craziest ways that completely transformed the way; I think about God, myself and the way I live my life today. 

I am so excited that Glow Church is partnering with Bethel School and using the curriculum that radically transformed the way I think and changed my life. This curriculum has a way of activating you in a lifestyle of faith and miracles.

Hi, my name is Matthew and I’m from the Gold Coast, Australia. In 2018 I attended Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM) in Redding California and completed the first year of the school.

I originally didn’t know why I needed to go to BSSM but I knew God was leading me there. From day one, God confirmed, and then countless times, that this was where I was supposed to be. Spending 9 months in a ‘GreenHouse,’ like environment, allowed me to grow in so many areas, but growing in my identity as a beloved son of God, was the most significant. Living a revivalist lifestyle actually became easy as I leaned back into the Father’s arms and allowed His love to flow through me. 

I am really excited about this next season and the fact that we will be hosting a similar school here in my hometown, on the Gold Coast!

Hi, My name is Nadia. I am originally from Saint-Petersburg, Russia but now I live with my beautiful family on the Gold Coast, Australia. I attended Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in 2012 and completed all three years.

God led me to BSSM through a few significant divine appointments. Being Russian, I didn’t know much about Bethel. I just followed His voice trusting He had the best plan for my life. He opened doors and brought provision for every step. As a result, I am forever changed. I have deeply encountered God’s love for myself and for others. Through Bill Johnson and Kris Vallotton’s lives and teachings I’ve discovered how good God is, which helped to strengthen my personal relationship with Him. I have grown in discernment to recognise God’s voice to navigate daily life. He has affirmed my identity, my calling and my destiny! I have seen what true love, humility and honour look like. I have personally experienced supernatural manifestations of God such as healing and miracles.

I am thrilled to see Glow Church and BSSM partnering together to bring this course to the Gold Coast. I believe this will change your life too!
