What makes a revivalist?

“Revivalists” are those who are faithful and committed to God, who are willing to pay whatever price is necessary to live in lasting community, purity and power, because they believe in God’s love, whose manifest presence transforms lives and cultures.

Core Values

At CSSM we build our school culture around these specific core values

Lifestyle

 

Learning from the outside in:

We aim to establish a healthy lifestyle and culture within you.  The following is a practical expression of choices and behaviors that flow from our core mission of becoming a revivalist.  We have found them very helpful in creating an atmosphere that advances the Kingdom. 

These are the characteristics of a revivalist:

Believer

We expect students to grow in the Truth - Come to love it. Deeply enjoy its value to save and transform. Ultimately, to radically live it

Focused

Focus is the key in accomplishing all that God has called you to become.

Passion

When we are passionate about something, our whole being is engaged. As you love Him with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, you will tap into His passion for yourself, His Church, and the lost.

Willing to pay any price

CSSM is not just a school. Rather it’s a nine-month training centre and it costs far more than money to attend here. We are dedicated to raising up the ones who are willing to pay this price.

Community

We are not our own; we have been bought with a price and placed in a family and our behaviour deeply affects others. Community is one of God’s most powerful tools for changing us into His likeness.

Purity

The Lord asks us to walk in purity because it is life giving. CSSM’s environment of freedom requires a high level of connection to God and community along with self-management.

Power

The Good News without power is not good news. Paul was glad that his preaching wasn’t with persuasive words but demonstrations of power (1 Cor. 2). One of our goals is that every student would know how to cast out demons, heal the sick, and preach the Gospel.

Loved by Him

“We work from love, not for love.” —Kris Vallotton. Let the primary focus of your life be to fall more in love with Jesus with each passing day.

Transforms lives and cultures

Jesus has called us to go into the nations and be the salt and the light of the world. Learn to reproduce yourself by “teaching [others] to obey everything Jesus Christ has commanded us” (Matt. 27). Like Paul says, “Follow my example as I follow the example of Christ.”

Nature Of CSSM Outreaches

One of the aims of CSSM is to motive students to step out and take risks during their day-to-day lives to display the Power of the Holy Spirit. e.g. praying for the sick at work, giving prophetic words to strangers, sharing the gospel, etc. Onsite students also have an opportunity to attend group outreach activities in and around various communities.

When Do Students Go On Outreaches?

Students are expected to complete six Faith Risks Challenges during the year. These take place during their everyday lives. Onsite students are given the opportunity to attend 5 group outreaches on some Saturdays.
