ARC School – Durango, CO
March 1st – April 22nd

Do you want to run hard after God, grow in prayer and clarify your missional calling?

Come join others like you who are hungry for more, have a deeper “yes” in their hearts and long to see transformation come to devastated cities and nations through the power of God.

The ARC School will help you clarify your calling, gain confidence in your identity, grow in prayer, develop leadership skills and train you as a crisis response missionary.

Do not miss this very unique opportunity to set aside a season to seek God and go deeper in your crisis response skills all in the context of a praying, missional community.

The ARC School is hosted by the Durango House of Prayer in Durango, Colorado.

Limited space; so apply soon!


Durango is a beautiful western town, nestled in the San Juan National Mountains. It is an ideal place to pull away and get trained as a crisis response missionary, leader, intercessor, and worshipper.

“Crisis” is a mission field and laborers are needed!  However, we must go beyond simply bringing in aid and relief. We need a true “Apostolic Response to Crisis” to see transformation come to cities and nations. Whether it is areas affected by crisis, war, terrorism or disaster, an apostolic responder is “sent” going at any cost to themselves to see Jesus gain nations as His inheritance. Read more about an Apostolic Response to Crisis.

These “sent ones” are commissioned to bring the culture and atmosphere of heaven to the darkest and most desperate situations around the world. Worship is their warfare, and the Word is their sword. They dismantle dark fortifications in cities so the harvest can be reached, prisoners set-free territory be taken back for the Kingdom of God.

The purpose of this school is to create an atmosphere of prayer, worship and growth in which individuals can develop into leaders and walk in their callings and passions, especially for the purpose of reaching the harvest in crisis. We also desire to raise up and sending out leaders that put apostolic feet to the prophetic hope we have of bringing transformation to cities and nations caught in the midst of crisis and disaster.

After the school you will have opportunity to deploy short or long term around the world with us.

Here is what to expect:

Day 1 – Arrival day, room assignment at the Wapiti Lodge and welcome meal.
