Program

Menorah Mission School offers a 10-month course that provides an education in biblical topics, health, evangelism, leadership and agriculture. The curriculum consists of classes, described below, and practical activities to equip students with both comprehensive knowledge and experience in those areas. The aim of the course is to prepare students for missionary work and to lead them closer to Christ, in Whom their character will grow.

The program includes more than 100 hours dedicated to in-dept study and practical application, in which the students will have an opportunity to get a deeper understanding of the material presented and practiced in class.

To allow students to gain further knowledge and experience in the field they feel specifically called to, two curriculums are made available. They differ in some of the topics covered in class and in the hours of practice. The two curriculums are Bible Evangelism (BE) and Health Evangelism (HE).

Students who feel called to Bible Evangelism will have additional hours to gain a deeper experience in preaching and teaching the Word of God. Students that choose Health Evangelism will develop their knowledge and skills in massage, hydrotherapy and other practical health areas. The students will not have to choose the curriculum immediately, but must do so within the first two months of course.

All classes are taught in English.

"Let the living gospel be taught in our schools. Let students be educated in its principles, that they may be prepared to impart the truth to others. Let them learn to minister to the spiritual and physical needs of those whom they will meet in their work. By the ministry of the word the gospel is preached; by medical missionary work the gospel is practiced. The gospel is bound up with medical missionary work. Neither is to stand alone, bound up in itself" "Manuscript Releases", vol. 13, p. 303
