HSM Session 2 Begins Sept 24

"to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up"

Eph 4:12

What is Heritage School of Ministry?

Heritage School of Ministry (HSM) is facilitated by Heritage Church NW in Vancouver, WA. The purpose of HSM is to fulfill the mandate found in Ephesians 4:12 to equip Jesus' disciples to edify and build the church. Our desire is to help students identify ways they can uniquely serve the body of Christ and form a foundation to pursue meaningful ministry.

What should I expect when attending HSM?

  • HSM classes run seven weeks at a time. During each seven week session, we will study through two core books (see current class list below). *There will be three sessions offered throughout the year.

  • Classes are Sundays at Heritage Church from 6 PM - 8:30 PM.

  • All materials needed for each session are included in the cost of enrollment.

  • HSM offers the option to pursue two track options: Certification or Enrichment.

    • The Certification Track is for those who are especially interested in gaining the ministry skills needed to launch new ministries and even plant churches. The Certification track is a 3 year commitment from HSM to you and you to HSM.

    • The Enrichment Track is a great opportunity for those wanting to gather knowledge and skill to enhance your ability to edify and build up the body of Christ.

    • You do not have to decide which path you are pursuing prior to attending the first class of the session. Certification vs. Enrichment will be covered further during orientation the first week.

  • You can expect 3-5** hours of homework. The course work has been created to be valuable and doable no matter what time commitments you have outside of attending HSM.

  • Enrollment includes access to assigned Heritage Church Conferences ​while attending HSM.​​

**Length of time spent on homework depends on your certification track, learning style, what time/energy you have that week, and each week's specific content.




  • Understate basic Bible doctrines concerning the origin, fall, and redemption of man, the nature and purpose of God, and eternity.

  • Recognize that God wants to have a personal, eternal relationship with you.

  • Desire to make the Bible and its teachings your standard for life and conduct.

  • Allow the Lord of the universe to take control of your life.



  • Recognize how the church is involved in God's redemptive plan.

  • Understand the various ministries of the church.

  • See ways that you can be personally involved in the church.


How much does it cost to enroll and how do I pay?

  • Each seven week session costs $300.
