Surge School was created as a way to equip people throughout a region into a broader and deeper understanding of Jesus’ mission for His Church in the places they live, work, play, and rest. Thousands of people in North America have benefitted from this collaborative training across traditions and denominations.
Beginning in 2022, Emmaus City Church, Living Word Church, and more look forward to participating together. Do you want to join us?

Surge Begins in September 2022
Surge School is an integrated 9-month discipleship program used to equip followers of Jesus in their churches, workplaces, and neighborhoods. Surge provides participants with a lens to see all of life in the context of the greater work that God is doing in all of creation, and also the specific work God is doing in each person to bless the world.
