There is a wonderful scene in the Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones where the Spirit comes upon God’s people at Pentecost just as the resurrected Jesus had promised. They threw open the shutter. Sunlight flooded their room, as love had flooded their hearts. And the little room was filled with happy noises. Dancing feet, singing, laughing. They unlocked the door and surged out into the streets – as if they had never been afraid. The disciples surged out into the streets with good news.

We want to prepare the men and women of our church to “surge” into their various vocations and neighborhoods displaying and declaring the good news in a wise and winsome way. The Surge School is a 9-month (school year) training that includes reading, small table discussions, and large group intensives.
