Menorah Mission School program consists in a 9-month course that provides an education in biblical topics, health, evangelism, leadership and agriculture. To do so, we offer a curriculum of classes and of practical activities to equip students with a comprehensive knowledge and experience in those fields. 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 of practice and research, in which the students will have an opportunity to get a deeper understanding of the material presented and practiced in class.

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

Those who will choose Bible Evangelism will have additional hours to gain a deeper experience in preaching and teaching the Word of God. Those who will instead choose Health Evangelism will have more hours to gain experience in the fields of massage and hydrotherapy. The students will not have to choose the curriculum immediately, but will be able to 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
