Foundations For Revival and Reformation is a second-level program that brings together students, scholars, leaders, and practitioners. It exists to combine thought, encounter, and action to advance the Kingdom of God in the earth. We believe that training through biblical teaching, a Christ-centric worldview, and God-inspired modes of communication through action will lead people to walk into significant impact for the Kingdom.

The Foundations For Revival and Reformation program teaches current and future leaders the foundations and the skills necessary to be effective in your calling to any sphere of society and any nation. We desire to foster and pioneer bold new ideas and create space for you to deepen your relationship with God.
