The SCHOOL OF PROPHETS is the brainchild of Victor Phume, Founder and Senior Pastor of House of Joy Church. After assessing critical current needs and challenges facing the body of Christ in post-apartheid South Africa, Phume realized that a major shortcoming of the church is widespread de-emphasis – even neglect - of the prophetic ministry given to the church through the Holy Spirit. One of Paul’s major statements appears in Ephesians 2:19 and 20:
“Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone”.
To equip believers with relevant knowledge for roles as prophets and leaders in the edification of the body of Christ.
To promote the regular study and understanding of the Word of God in local churches.
To provide an opportunity for Christian believers to grow and mature in grace and service.
To enrich God’s people with gifts and skills necessary for effective witness in the twenty-first century.
To encourage and help saints to discover their gifts so that they find fulfillment in serving God.
To restore the apostolic and prophetic ministry in the body of Christ.
To rekindle awareness in the church of the importance of the schools of the prophets.
