The Grace & Glory School is an integral part of KingsWay Church. It began in 2008 in response to prophetic words regarding the destiny of our church being to equip, train and send people who have been loved into life. We take people from all walks of life, regardless of age. Our goal is to see them discover their true identity in God, and how much He loves them. They then become free to love themselves and others fearlessly
We are based at KingsWay Church – Manchester.
The Grace & Glory School of Ministry seeks to help you discover your true self (how God sees you) and encourages you to step into all God has for you and to partner with you as you walk in your destiny. Our mission is to equip and raise up a people who love God whole heartedly and live in the fullness of His kingdom here on earth.
FATHER HEART OF GOD
You will come to know God as a father and learn how to live your life as sons and daughters.
For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!”.
NEW CREATION REALITY
You will uncover the mystery of your union with God.
He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
2 Cor 5:21
LIVING LOVED LOVING YOU
You will experience the bliss of God’s unconditional love for you, which will transform your desire and ability to love.
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!
1 John 3:1
NATURALLY SUPERNATURALLY (24-7)
You will "do the stuff"... prophecy, healing, hearing God's voice and carrying the love of God into your community.
"Go and announce to them that the Kingdom of Heaven is near. Heal the sick, raise the dead cure those with leprosy and cast out demons. Give as freely as you have received!"
You will enjoy true friends who will speak into your life, encourage you to grow, and stand with you shoulder to shoulder.
"My prayer for all of them is that they will be one, just as you and I are one. Father - that just as you are in me and I am in you, so they will be in us, and the world will believe you sent me"
Our heart is to see people grow in who they are in a safe environment, whilst being able to practice what they are learning in their everyday lives. That's why the school will include four main areas:
You will be taught by a number of people who share our core values and ‘live the message’.
You will be encouraged to love our community outrageously. We enjoy doing this in many creative ways such as LoveSale, helping local charities and generally being a blessing in our neighbourhoods.
Grace & Glory students are very much a part of our church community. You are valuable members of our family and will have the opportunity to participate fully in all we do.
There will be an optional mission trip during the school year, along with other opportunities to minister in various settings. (full time school only)

TIMO and RUTH HACK

Their mandate is to raise up a generation of Burning Ones – a people that is completely consumed by the love of God and love for His kingdom. A people that only burn for Him, no matter the cost! While they love imparting the fire of God, they're having immense fun getting people drunk in God and seeing His perfect love and grace do what the law failed to do – bring freedom!
Alan has attended KingsWay for over 30 years. Throughout this time he has grown in his understanding of the Holy Spirit. He loves to help people grow in their knowledge on how to minister in power.
Irvin is a dad, a grandad, an ex-GP and was right royally screwed up psychologically for the first three decades of his life. He's discovered that God his father truly loves Him and that He's led him on the most exciting adventure of self discovery imaginable!!! Needless to say, he is rather keen on sharing this discovery of real freedom with others. His lovely wife Sue will tell you he's not joking.
Phil is an international speaker and author focussing on helping people to see that God looks like Jesus and so do they! He ran his own business for several years in Aberdeen before spending four years at Bethel Church in Redding, California. He has since spent the last 6 years speaking at conferences, colleges, ministry schools and churches, as well as creating free resources for people all over the world. His passion is to get people to think for themselves and push them out of their theological comfort zones.
Rebecca has a medical background and spent eight years with a ministry in Malaysia, travelling throughout the Far East before returning to Manchester.
