The Second Pier: Creative Writing – How We Train Effective Writers

Group Learning

The School of Kingdom Writers isn’t just a Christianized version of some secular program, it’s a dramatically original, powerful way to train up media influencers. The conventional approach to become a writer is to complete a 4-year humanities program and then attend a 2-3 year Masters of Fine Arts Creative Writing program.  More than 20,000 students each year will enroll in one of these MFA programs. These programs have become very effective at enrolling large numbers of students and churning them through an educational process. Over two or three years, students spend a lot of time talking and listening to […]

The First Pier: Spiritual Development and Supernatural Ministry

Spiritual Development

Of our three-emphasis curriculum, the first and most important pier is “Spiritual Development and Supernatural Ministry.” Spiritual Development is the process of drawing closer to Jesus, which we’ll foster by obedience to the Bible and through the development of healthy spiritual habits. We’ll spend a great deal of time in the practice of bible study, prayer, meditation, worship, solitude, fasting, and other spiritual disciplines in a guided environment. Spiritual development will express itself outwardly through evangelism, discipleship, and the development of small groups. Students will be provided with training and given opportunities to put their study to work in the […]

Our Three-Part Curriculum

Curriculum Bridge

We are a vocational training program. Our students learn by doing.  We use an apprenticeship and discipleship method to train students one-on-one and in small groups. By limiting our school to only 12 students per year, we can ensure that every student is given individualized attention to help them reach their goals and fulfill their vocational calling. Our program is designed to produce ministers who use writing as a resource for the Kingdom of God. The desired result is the transformation of hearts and minds for Jesus Christ, media is one of the means our students will be prepared to […]

Quarterly Report – 2019 Quarter 1: Forward Progress

Dear friends and partners, Spring is here and the Earth rejoices in imitation of our risen Lord! Sometimes it seems that the work is as hard as the ground. As the days lengthen and the ground softens, our hearts burst forth in creativity. In the winter, we whip the horse. In the spring, we hang on and do our best to steer! (For the record, when it comes to actual horses I’m anti-whipping but pro-steering.) We’ve come through a quarter of hard work. In some ways, the steady discipline of labor is a welcome relief to the barrage of creative impulses I […]
