School of Supernatural Missions

To equip the next generation of ministry leaders and missionaries for supernatural missions ministry.

With spiritual disciplines, biblical theology, and a practical, hands-on approach to learning facilitated by experienced instructors, the SSM program aims to provide young change-makers with the skills and knowledge they need to make a real impact in the world.

For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of talk, but of power.

1 Corinthians 4:20

Jesus linked the Great Commission to miraculous demonstrations of God’s goodness and power.

Physical healing, deliverance from demonic oppression, prophetic insight, and other works of the Spirit are essential to completing the unfinished task of world evangelization.
(Mark 16:15-20; Acts 1:8)

By the power of signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God… I have fully preached the Gospel of Christ.

Rom 15:19

Every single teaching of SSM impacted my life and my understanding deeply ... The move of God was so evident when we were praying for the sick, or sharing gospel in the street or even in the time of worship. If I could I would do the school again just to be in those classes

“SSM was amazing! God showed me that He is here to heal and bring freedom, and He wants to do it through us. I grew in intimacy with God and gained a greater understanding of who I am and what I’m called to. And, I was challenged and discipled by inspirational leaders who live this out.”

One Deep River

This school was pioneered by Nathan & Cindi Wagner from YWAM Mendocino. SSM is currently offered in Mendocino CA, Colorado Springs CO, and Kelowna BC.

YWAM was birthed as a movement dependent on God’s supernatural intervention. Our history is full of stories of supernatural guidance and miraculous provision. Most of our lives were reshaped through powerful moves of the Spirit during DTS and other schools or events. The challenges and opportunities we face as a mission call for a miraculous lifestyle and a supernatural anointing as never before.

This 2nd level school combines many streams of ministry in one deep river. A focused experience and study on the role of Supernatural Ministry in missions. Specifically including some training from Bethel Church, Freedom River Outreach, House of Prayer, Healing Rooms and others.

SSM brought me more than I could ever think of or imagine:
It brought me challenges – resulting in personal and spiritual growth.
It brought me connections – teaching me more about the concept of love.
It brought me Jesus in new and deeper ways – stirring up an enthusiasm inside of me to share Jesus and His supernatural ways with the rest of the world.

I only came for my relationship with Jesus, but because of the way Christina and Graeme poured truth, grace, and Holy Spirit into my life, my wife, and my ministry, I will never be the same!”

What to Expect

SSM brings supernatural ministry into focus under the lens of the Great Commission.

Preaching, Worship, Prayer, Healing, Prophecy

You will learn directly from visiting teachers who are experiencing the power of God in their ministries. Daily class sessions will be rich in application, experimentation, and practice.

Our schedule includes regular daily times of worship, prayer, and intercession. Students participate in various forms of corporate prayer and we will experiment with different forms of worship and creative expressions of our adoration. We will learn to be sustained by the Spirit as we take time to welcome and enjoy His Presence.

During the SSM there will be opportunities to apply what we are learning in weekly local outreaches. After the SSM, students will have the option to join one of our teams presenting a 3-week IGNITE seminar in churches or other ministry communities, equipping believers in supernatural ministry.
