Menorah Mission School program consists in a 9-month course that aims to provide a deeper education in the fields of Bible knowledge, evangelism, health, leadership and agriculture. To do so, we offer a curriculum of classes and of practical activities, to cover the various aspects involved and to equip with a comprehensive knowledge and experience in those fields. All classes are taught in English.
To allow the students to gain extra practical experience in fields of their interest during the course, beyond regular class time (where we already have practice) more than 40 hours will be devoted to gain more experience in vocational fields covered during the course. Each student will be able to choose two topics among massage, hydrotherapy, preaching and teaching.
"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
