I feel so privileged to lead such an exciting and vibrant Virtual Academy, which offers a great opportunity for those individuals who seek spiritual growth. It is my goal to lead each of you with the power of Holy Spirit to succeed in your needed area of spiritual growth. It is my desire to offer each member the best possible opportunities to become empowered, and confident in your identity in Christ Jesus. The goal on this Virtual Academy is to prepare you for all future challenges in your spiritual development, in an discouraged and increasingly dying world.
I am very proud of the gifts God has given me and the nurturing, inclusive ethos where I stride to set high standards and expectations for our members to achieve and operate at your very best. From the moment a new Spiritual Growth Academy member joins our Virtual Academy Community I want them to feel a sense of happiness and belonging, as this is essential to their future success. It’s my hope that through this virtual facility and my dedication will enable all Academy members to thrive in an environment that is intimate, friendly and attuned to every specific spiritual need. I stride to create an atmosphere where you can feel relaxed and comfortable for you all to thrive!
The Spiritual Growth Academy is purposed to introduce relationship with Holy Spirit through the taught process of intimacy, which can be defined as closeness of observation to obtain knowledge. We find the importance of this in the Word of God that says “ the Spirit of the LORD will rest on him, the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the LORD.
Through the Academy's curriculum we will explore the true spiritual benefits of the Divine knowledge of God found through Holy Spirit in which Jesus instructed us to intentionally expect the Holy Spirit and the teachings there of, “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come” John 14:26.
Spiritual growth is the process of becoming more and more like Jesus Christ. When we place our faith in Jesus, the Holy Spirit begins the process of making us more like Him, conforming us to His image described in 2 Peter 1:3-8.
By God's power we have “everything we need” to live lives of godliness, which is the goal of spiritual growth. Notice that what we need comes “through our knowledge of Him (Holy Spirit),” which is the key to obtaining everything we need. Our knowledge of Him (Holy Spirit) comes from the Word of God and the revelation found through Holy Spirit given to us for our edification and growth.
Sadly the people of God lack true relationship through intimacy with Holy Spirit because they lack the true understanding of the necessity to getting to know Holy Spirit as an individual operating entity of the trinity. The Word of God says “my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. "Because you have rejected knowledge” Hosea 4:6
As we experience spiritual growth, fewer and fewer of the “acts of the flesh” will be evident in our lives as outlined in Galatians 5:19-23. Spiritual growth is identified by the fruit of the Spirit becoming increasingly evident in a believer’s life, this is found in Galatians 5:19-23.
When the transformation of salvation takes place, spiritual growth begins. The Holy Spirit indwells us (John 14:16-17). We are new creatures in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). The old, sinful nature begins to give way to the new, Christlike nature (Romans 6-7).
Spiritual growth is a lifelong process that depends on our study and application of God's Word (2 Timothy 3:16-17) and our walk in the Spirit (Galatians 5:16-26).
We as spiritual mature children of God have a responsibility to teach those found tossed to and fro as directed in the Word “You have been believers so long now that you ought to be teaching others. Instead, you need someone to teach you again the basic things about God’s word. You are like babies who need milk and cannot eat solid food“ Hebrews 5:12.
As we seek spiritual growth, we should pray to God and ask for wisdom concerning the areas He desires us to grow in. Through the Academy we hope to instill the strategies to see this requirement become a manifestation in those hungry for the deeper things of God. “These are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God” 1 Corinthians 2:10.
Unfortunately God’s people are not aware that they can ask God to increase their faith and knowledge of Him through Holy Spirit, so they walk in defeat of life’s challenges. God desires for us to grow spiritually, and He has given us all we need to experience spiritual growth. The The Spiritual Growth Academy and with the Holy Spirit’s help, and the spark of conversation, we can overcome sin and steadily become more like our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ through the introduction of truth that will shift the mindset and change the perspectives, come with us on this journey.
For a membership of only $19.99 a month we're aiming to make your experience here awesome. I want you to get five key things from The Spiritual Growth Academy:
To make this a reality, I’m going to need your help. Every time you contribute a story, experience, or idea, you’re building a knowledge base every member of this community can meditate on to make better decisions. And when you invite in as few as two new members to sign up on the wait-list, you’re adding rocket fuel to what this community can accomplish together. It doesn’t get any better than that.
I found myself stuck, blocked and facing a conundrum. I had no identity, but why and how would I get this eluding part of all that I were to become?
So I asked, and He..... God answered, in three words,
It has and continues to be, through an intimate relationship with Holy Spirit that I found my true identity in Christ Jesus!
I created The Spiritual Growth Academy to bring together like minded individuals seeking to grow spiritually, identify / advance in their purpose and most important know the voice of God for themselves, which I believe will cause all to walk into their true identity in Christ. There’s no question it’s a different approach. And a new one, which may have a bit of a learning curve.
I could have created a group somewhere else, but I chose this path for a few key reasons:
* It’s Ours. As we build relationships together within this community, you will have access to exclusive content, deeper conversations, richer faith based experiences, online and in-real-life events (to be held at future dates). Plus, I have access to great analytics that will make me smarter and faster about what’s working for you, and what’s not. Allowing more valuable content that will help you to grow spiritually in the areas you have need of!
* There are More Ways for You to Meet Each Other. There are more ways to introduce like minded kingdom builders who are going in the same direction as one another, who fall into the same spiritual trajectory, and who care about the same spiritual values.
* The Spiritual Growth Academy Can Bring Together More in One Place. Right now, I’m juggling a bunch of services in different places. It doesn’t necessarily allow me to create the best experience for you. By launching this community, I can introduce you to more people, unlock valuable collaborations and exclusive content, and I’m freed up to bring you new, fresh ideas and practices to lead you into practical spiritual life's experiences. All this for a membership of only $19.99 monthly!
I can’t wait to be inspired by and with you on this journey !
