MESSAGE FROM

BISHOP EDWIN EWUSIE BROOKMAN

 

Dear Student,
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
The Ewusie Brookman Ministries, I and the Pastors from Grace Gosple Ministries International are proud to present Rhema Prophetic Academy (RPA). This unique concept, in our Word based Biblical training, is a simple way to study and will only occupy one day per week.
The curriculum in 6 months has been especially designed to take a born-again believer from spiritual immaturity to maturity, fully assured in their walk with God.  This comprehensive training will thus be given to those who believe that God has called into full time ministry in the Prophetic.
 The program is going to be interesting, explosive and imparting because on completion, you will be awarded a Certificate in Prophetic Ministry and directed towards establishing your future ministry as experienced by most past students of RPA. The key focus of Rhema Prophetic Academy (RPA) is to impart biblical knowledge, transfer prophetic mantles, develop spiritual character and improve ministerial skills by applying the God given principles entrusted to me. 
May God’s grace empower, direct and strengthen you on this journey as it has on us. As the President and Chancellor, I know beyond a shadow of doubt that you will reach your full potential in Christ as you commit to discovering God’s destiny for your life through Rhema Prophetic Academy (RPA).

 

Bishop Edwin Ewusie Brookman

President / Chancellor

 

1. RHEMA PROPHETIC ACADEMY

The Rhema Prophetic Academy (RPA) is the bible training arm of The Ewusie Brookman Ministries (EBM) where people are trained as spiritual soldiers and ambassadors of the Word of God. Anything that has to do with bible training in EBM must of necessity pass through the Rhema Prophetic Academy (RPA). The purpose of The Rhema Prophetic Academy (RPA) is to provide sound biblical and theological training, coupled with charismatic teachings for leaders, missionaries, teachers, evangelists, ministers, prophets and pastors who are motivated to serve God and be effective members in the Kingdom of God. In addition, every student of RPA must be ready at all times to display loyalty, honesty, dedication, discipline, integrity, holiness within and without, humility, readiness to serve, purity in words and deeds.  Briefly stated, our objectives are to give students:

 

  1. A thorough and systematic instruction of the word of God to provide a foundation for building life’s spiritual experiences.
  2. The ability to relate basic principles of the Bible to today living, to walk the spirit-filled life, and to know God’s voice.
  3. The preparation to fulfill the Divine Calling.
  4. The equipping needed to fulfill Jesus’ command to a)Go ye therefore, and teach all nations…’b) (Matt. 28:19) and the training and experience to be a leader.
  5. The vision of God’s restoration of his church and spreading the gospel of the kingdom to the ends of the earth.
  6. To prepare students for life management and to benefit the community as a whole.

It is important for the leadership to know if such a situation has arisen.  Speak to the Rhema Prophetic Academy team!

Any student that desires to resign for whatever reason must provide advice of such in writing to the Registrar.  The Registrar will counsel with the student and then advise the Secretary and Treasurer of the resignation. Fees will be calculated up to and including installments for the month of resignation.  The minimum amount will always be the value of the application fee.

11.4.2 Forced Resignation

A student may be asked to resign if fees are in arrears exceeding 3-months, to avoid any embarrassment and to protect the student from further debt accumulation.  The student will be given a letter requesting them to resign unless the fees are settled in full with immediate effect.  A student may also be asked to resign if their conduct or behavior is deemed destructive to the ministry in any way, or constitutes harm to any other person or Bible School student, and/or as defined in the Code of Conduct.
