Step into a year of intentional Kingdom living. Learn how to live life with the Kingdom of God at its centre – whether you are at home, in the workplace, anywhere and everywhere. Foster an intimate relationship with the Father and develop your identity in Christ as a son or daughter who is raised up to be led by the Spirit of God.
GROUNDED IN THE WORD
Rapidly grow in your knowledge of the Scripture and the doctrines of Jesus Christ. Harness the application of that knowledge with practical, real-world, on-the-ground skills development and training both in utilising and teaching the Word.
The Greenhouse is a one-year live-in discipleship program to develop you as a christian leader.
An intentional year to grow and develop your individual calling, along with deep character formation. You can expect this will be a year of transformation and rapid growth and will prepare you for your next season.
Propel yourself into a revolutionary experience for your life in Christ. Enter into a place of heart transformation, which causes every behaviour and action to flow out of your intimacy with Christ.
The journey is not just for the head but for the heart.
The Greenhouse is not a bible school or an academic program. It has a unique live-in discipleship model that is highly relational where you will be trained, equipped and activated in the work of the ministry.
There will be very practical aspects of engaging in mission, outreaches and house churches along with mentoring and living in a communal discipleship house.
A live-in discipleship experience in a home where you can live in a culture of kingdom family and community with discipline and accountability.
You will receive ministry training & development in preaching, missions, facilitating a gathering, as well as opportunities to serve in the local church.
You will have a mentor assigned to you for regular one-on-one input from out of the leadership of The Way Community.
Mentors will do all they can to encourage each disciple in their growth and fruitfulness.
Jesus’ way of teaching was highly relational and we recognise that some of the most important qualities are caught rather than taught.
Throughout the course of the year there will be other opportunities for powerful and significant input from key leaders and visiting ministries through intensives and exclusive training times.
Mission trips are an opportunity to go out into the world and spread the love of Jesus and preach the gospel.
All members will do at least one international missions trip during their time at The Greenhouse.
We will also be taking teams on regional evangelistic outreach as well as opportunities locally.
These are a great opportunity to expand your horizons, serve others and extend the Kingdom of God.
You will engage in extensive studies of the scriptures and read through the Bible in a year.
You will participate in a weekly Wordfest where we deep dive into the bible, along with other training and equipping throughout the year including School of the Spirit.
The Greenhouse is a ministry of The Way Community in Bendigo, Australia.
The Way has a unique spiritual culture and is one of the most vibrant revivalist communities in the country. It is a church with an Antioch-style mandate and a calling to raise and send out spiritual leaders.
It has a proven history of rapidly raising up, empowering, equipping and releasing leaders who are going to the nations throughout the world.
We have a strong prophetic culture with an emphasis on worship, prayer & encounter along with a focus on evangelism, a life of mission and making disciples. We believe that we offer a transformational and accelerated ministry development opportunity for those who are hungry to prepare themselves to live life devoted to the work of the Kingdom of God.
At The Way, the focus isn’t the traditional church model of building a big ‘’church’’ in a building or location. Instead, we are focused on building BIG PEOPLE (the living stones, the true church) to be the priesthood of all believers and to influence wherever God places them (their workplace, business, on assignment to another town, etc.)
The expectation is that they will be Kingdom influencers to shine the light of Christ and bring the Kingdom of God. As an Apostolic Hub, we see ourselves focusing on equipping, releasing, and sending, whether for short-term assignments or longer-term missions, overseas, or our own nation, within our city or our fellowship.
Todd Hunter, Senior Leader
In Ephesisans 4:11-13, Paul puts a call to key leaders within the Body of Christ to be effective in equipping, training and releasing all believers into their gifts calling and purpose under the direction and inspiration of the Holy Spirit; to bring those believers to a level of maturity that they are matching the fullness of the stature of Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit has placed a specific calling on this community of believers to perform this task in particular. The Kingdom of God needs leaders that have been prepared and tools to move quickly and decisively, who know the heart and the voice of God, and have real-world experience leading and ministering to others. Such equipping is not found in a classroom surrounded by many other students, but is found in being able to walk with and work alongside leaders as Silas did with Paul. I invite you to do this with me. As we lead people into salvation, healing and deliverance; as we teach and leading people into the Kingdom of God, I invite you to come and live and work with us and become the spiritual leader you know you are called to be.
