 Research Interests

Immersed in the Word of God School.

The Lord Jesus put this on my heart to start a school for graduating High School students or anybody that is willing to apply. I want to create a school where the foundation is the Word of God and its focus is the “Whole Man” (Spirit, Soul and Body). The individual would be given intense training in the Word of God having their minds renewed and feed only organic foods for their body.

Total immersion of the Bible for 40 days. Immersion is when you submerge an item so fully into something that it can’t help but take on the nature of the substance that surrounds it. It happens with languages; where people must learn a language because of the environment they are in. The Word of God is an environment and we must learn that language to be Victorious in life. Change happens MUCH quicker in your life when you are immersed.

I know an individual can mature quickly being in the Word of God. I have seen this transformation when a civilian off the street is sent to Basic Combat Training and made into an American Soldier. I have experienced this in my own life by hearing the Word of God through Joseph Prince, Creflo Dollar, Bill Winston, Kenneth Hagin, Keith Moore, Kenneth Copeland, Charles Capps, Dr Nasir, Dr Leaf, Dr Colbert, Dr Jordan and many more.

Some of the subjects that will be taught are the following: GRACE, the Word meditation, faith, renew the mind, love, healing, health, nutrition, joy, marriage, money, confession, hearing from God, prayer, forgiveness, Holy Spirit, tongues and the Blessing. Team Sports and events will be done daily. Also I will be teaching life skills such as eating, sleeping, communication, cooking, organizing, thinking and the things we do on a daily basis.
