Rescue Academy is a seven-week workshop designed to equip and inspire Jesus followers to bring the Gospel into every relationship that God has given them. Through these sessions you will be challenged to pursue people in pain, you will learn to recognize the urgency in each person’s situation and you will be equipped with relational tools to point people to the love and hope we have in Jesus.
Rescue Academy uses live demonstration, video teaching, and table-based discussion to deliver practical and helpful tools, skills, and concepts that will leave you more hopeful about the world, more confident in who God has made you to be, and more free to show up in the lives of those around you.
Rescue Academy is founded on the belief that God has already placed each of you in situations and relationships with a purpose. You don’t have to go out and start a new ministry to be a Rescuer. All that you need is a willing heart, a few basic tools, and to begin asking God to help you see those around you the way that He does – broken but valuable beings desperately in need of love, hope, and community. Rescue Academy will help infuse those values into your everyday life, breathing fresh air and freedom into how God intends to use you.
Consider taking part in the biblical study included with this document. While Rescue Academy is not a Bible study curriculum, it is founded on Scripture and immersed in the life and teaching of Jesus. The tools and skills taught in Rescue Academy assume that you believe in Jesus as Savior and have a solid understanding of what it means to be rescued by Him. The best thing you can do before joining in on Rescue Academy, is study His Word and ask Him to speak to you about His heart for rescue and how you can join what He is doing in the world.
